Who Exactly is Anita Ryan?
Who was “Neet” and How Did She Became Anita Ryan?
Never the tallest flower in the field, Anita has compensated for her small stature with her larger-than-life presence. Her voice and stunning presence are the tools she uses to create the life of her dreams.
Born into a musical family, a love for music was part of the package. Her talents blossomed each year since infancy when she would watch mum and dad play, sing, and dance.
At 16, Anita joined a 40-piece gospel choir that took her across Europe on a sell-out tour. She had been bitten by the bug and promptly propped her eyes wide open for opportunity and possibility.
Her reputation grew in proportion to her talent.
Shortly after graduating from her teens she embarked upon her first European tour as an opening act.
“Supporting an American soul singer gave me the much-needed experience of working with a live audience,” she says. “I found out early on that I could capture their emotions and keep them in the palm of my hand.”
Moving into the headline position, Anita was soon fronting bands from around the world.
The ease with which she performs soulful classics, combined with her ability to capture an audience’s attention, has led to Anita to taking center stage at high profile events for benefits, weddings, galas, and corporate meetings.
Ryan enjoys an ongoing engagement for Manchester United football club, performing at the Europa League Final and for esteemed guests at private parties hosted by sponsors and even Sir Alex Ferguson. She has also entertained corporate clients on Windstar Yacht cruises and is a Headline Guest Entertainer in the stunning theaters aboard Carnival, Royal Caribbean, and P&O Cruises.
Unquestionably initiated as one of Manchester, Cheshire, and the North West’s singing royalty, Anita regularly headlines celebrity special events, weddings, corporate meetings, and private parties in her area and around Europe.
Her warm and welcoming personality is an unexpected bonus to audiences and clients alike.
