But with her death, she left her daughter Roxie all alone. With a big heart and great love, Anita took over the custody of her granddaughter Roxie after the death of Jada.

Anita Was Not Allowed To Do Anything

Anita was one of six children of their parents; to people’s surprise, they were the closest siblings from the beginning.

According to Anita, they were only allowed to go to church. Besides that, their parents strictly restricted going to parties, movies, games, and even in the neighbourhood. 

So all they had in the name of entertainment was each other. They used to be so crazy that their father screamed that they were the craziest children. 

She also expressed that her mom and dad used to go to church every night, and after they left, she and her siblings used to insert their skirts into their panties and put up a show.

They used to find happiness within themselves every day.

Anita Wants People To Feel Peace 

Anita revealed in an interview that she and her sister’s main songs were based on emotions, relaxation and enjoyment.

They hence similarly wrote the lyrics in the beginning. But they only got an offer for Jazz, so they did the genre for quite a while.  

But later on, releasing their album, they also released songs they wanted people to hear. 

Anita said she wants people to be happy and chilled while listening to her sing. 

She wants people to forget all the pain and tensions in their life and find peace in their minds through their music. 

It was what she worked and wrote for. 

Not just Anita but her brother also believes in spreading peace over the world. 

Anita Cries While Listening To Music

Anita’s brother revealed in an interview that Anita was the kind of person that never played songs or even notes in her house. 

Although Anita is a musician and singer, she avoids the notes and songs when she stays home. 

It was revealed that Anita is an emotional person. She opened up that she starts to cry whenever she hears minor chords and a few notes. 

She feels the music and its tones, and they emotionally attack her. She cannot control her tears. 

Not all types of music make her cry, but still, she cries on most of the notes.
