Nakara "SoloStar" White was born and mostly raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She adopted the name SoloStar in 2010 when she began actively pursuing a career in music, stating that it represents her being a loner and shining regardless of her circumstances. A former U.S. soldier, college graduate and published author since the tender age of nine, Solo is just as versatile in her music as she is in her everyday life. She strives to allow her vulnerability through the real life situations she flows about, and the genuineness through which she expresses them to be the factors that set her apart from her peers.
SoloStar has released two mixtapes entitled DREAM CHA$IN' (2011) and Still Dreamin': The Duets (2012), a collaboration project. She released the single and visual for “Love Letters” in 2016 and remains relevant through collaborations, performing and community outreach. Summer of 2017 saw the release of Lost & Found, an EP collective of unreleased material.
SoloStar is also the founder of S.W.A.G.G. (Super Women Achieving Great Goals), an organization committed to uplifting and supporting ambitious women of color by providing platforms, facilitating collaborative efforts and creating and sharing resources. She currently spends the bulk of her time doing youth work and running the R.A.P Open Mic in Uptown. She is widely respected for her powerful stage presence and ability to connect with her audiences. Her ultimate goal with her artistry is to heal and inspire the masses through her candid perspective of everyday situations. She lives her life by the scripture Philippians 4:13 which states "I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me." With a motto like that, it’s no doubt that this star is going far.
