“I love what I do and I plan on being an entertainer for the rest of my life, this is my passion.” – Milanis

Milanis started acting at the age of 5 in school productions for School House Rocks and the Michael Jackson vs. Prince Collections. She started singing at the age of 3 at school talent shows and in local restaurants, which led to her being booked to play at more high profile events. She also comes from a family full of talent; Her mother Yeimis is a longtime professional dancer who currently tours with the legendary Lisa Lisa from the iconic 80s group Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam and is co-founder of the nonprofit Designed 2 Dance Inc, and her step-mother Toni Menage – a renowned singer and performer in her own right – is the Personal Manager and Musical Director for Lisa Lisa and has helped guide the careers of many artists of note throughout her illustrious career on the management side of the business.
As Milanis continues to grow in the industry, she would like to thank her family and friends, Talent Manager Mrs. Theresa Bastien @324.tamtheresa, Talent Agent Shirley Faison @adunnirosetalent, Vocal Coach Robert Marks @bobmarks and Acting Coach Wendy Mckenzie @wendyactingcoach.
