Eleven-year-old R&B newcomer Jamia Simone Nash has signed with The Firm for management and for film/TV representation with Creative Artists Agency (CAA).

Her earlier appearances include the “Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Good Morning America” and Nickelodeon’s animated series “The Backyardigans.”
Nash is now set to perform during the AARP 50th anniversary event “Songs of Soul and Inspiration.” Taking place June 21 at Phillips Arena in Atlanta, the two-hour soiree—directed by producer/choreographer Debbie Allen—includes among its headliners Chaka Khan, Yolanda Adams, Queen Latifah and CeCe Winans.
