Though a newcomer on the L.A. scene, Becca Wonka has been a consummate performer since she won her first singing competition by flooring the crowds of her hometown, Nantes, France, at age 4. Raised on Bach, Vivaldi, Mozart and all kinds of religious music, including American Gospel, she was the soloist of a popular choir that performed intensely and even toured abroad. While shifting her focus to jazz and funk, she also applied herself in school, despite the storms she faced at home and ended up graduating first in her class from the prestigious English and American Literature Master program at Paris VII University.
Shortly after, Becca auditioned for Robert Cordier's Acting International Parisian school, and was admitted directly into the final year of the program. There, she fell in love with the work of Anton Chekhov and many others. Cordier encouraged Becca to commit more deeply to her musical talents, starting her off writing jazz songs and playing with her quintet in Paris, which she later took to New York for an exciting five show run at the Village Theater. Back in France, the storyteller in Becca realized which way to go to take her art to the next level: West again, but this time all the way to Hollywood.
Becca petitioned for a green card, granted for extraordinary ability in the arts, and worked in the industry, translating dialogue into French for numerous TV shows, including "Mad Men" and "Nurse Jackie." Once settled in sunny California, she started to heal from the deep childhood trauma that had affected her health and creativity for many years. With a newfound love and respect for herself and her talents, she started writing songs and stories again.
Her gratitude for the blissful life she dreamed up into reality overflowed into a need to give back. The natural born musician soon became a passionate activist, determined to prove that all of us can heal and grow out of our conditioning, individually and collectively. To reference the great Gil Scott-Heron, she believes that the social, cultural and spiritual revolution America needs should now be televised on all possible screens.
