Area of Study
BFA in Drama, Music Theater
Class of 2022
Sunday spent her early years in Minneapolis, Minnesota and Southside Chicago, appearing in countless theatrical performances and vocal recitals, singing in her mother’s church, then soon moving onto film opportunities. High school took her to Washington State where, inspired by icons like Tina Turner, Madonna, Prince, she focused on developing her voice and songwriting career.
After being accepted to Carnegie Mellon University, she made her mark Freshman year by winning the esteemed “Campus Superstar” competition which quickly led to collaborations with other musicians and drama students, fine tuning her business skills to create her own original music and accompanying videos. In school, Sunday explored delving into characters of substance including her most recent role of Marya D while outside of school she performed concerts alongside an incredible array of drag queens and kings in Pittsburgh in the cabaret series “Another Party With Amanda Lepore,” “After Werk,” “Do it for Betty White Brunch,” and more.
The pandemic afforded Sunday an opportunity to live abroad with her family in Cairo, Egypt and volunteer at an organization named STARS: for refugees by refugees. It was during this time that she regularly performed originals at the “Cairo Jazz Club” with fellow producers and musicians. She was also able to connect and work with a fierce team of Cinematographers and Directors from Yemen to create the music video for her original song, “Waves”.
Through activism and empathy, Sunday writes music and creates her art in a collaborative process, striving to reveal that regardless of the experiences we may go through, human beings are deeply resilient and unique.
