Adria Chea, a native of Dallas, has worked professionally in Corporate Executive Sales for nearly 20 years. Adria completed both her undergraduate degree and M.B.A. from Grand Canyon University, graduating with highest honors. In her personal life, she is a proud wife, mom, and "Momager" to son Kaden, and a "bonus" mom to three adult children; Channing, Braxton, and Cole. She resides in So Cal with her husband Alvin, a professional Recording Artist with the Acapella Gospel-Jazz group Take 6. Adria quietly studied the entertainment industry from the wings, gleaning career pointers, as she supported their dreams. But after being featured on TLC's hit reality show "Rock The Reception", her appeal was so undeniable that various producers repeatedly approached her to do follow-up productions. Admittedly reluctant at first, Adria has now discovered her unique voice and is thrilled to share it with the world. Adria is passionate about her spiritual life and has been an active member of Inglewood's Breath of Life Worship Center's church family, for many years. She has presided over several of their local Ministries and is even a Board member with both that church and for Extreme Mobility Camps for the Blind. In her leisure time, Adria enjoys traveling, fashion, and spending time with family and friends. She strives to keep God first in everything, setting her Creator as her priority and His salvation as her ultimate life goal.
