On Jan. 12, 2021, Pia tribute her mother’s memory writing, “I see you when I look at my sisters, I hear you when they speak. You are not gone and will never be forgotten.” Pia also said, her mother was a beast of a woman who overcame “many mountains, fought many battles and won.”
Pia also keeps talking about her “mama’s mama”, who not just primarily raised her but also passed down her love for music.

Pia Renee Net Worth, Career
Pia discovered her musical abilities at the age of six but pregnant at the age of 15, music was the last thing on her mind.
Again, at 18, she had her second child, and music continued to remain the least of her priority while she worked to make ends meet for her family.
It was not until her early twenties that Pia began to pursue her passion professionally.
At the age of 23, she enrolled in the music program at Harold Washington College. Further, Pia studied bass guitar for a year, began playing with a local Reggae Band, and also sang background for many others.
In 2007, she auditioned for American Idol. Her televised audition impressed judges Randy Jackson and Paula Abdul. But because Simon Cowell was not as impressed she was not selected. By then, Pia had already started receiving invitations to perform background for the likes of Ethiopian Pop artist, Teddy Afro.
Now, alongside The Voice credits, Pia also has the commercial voiceover actor and realtor job to go back to. In 2019, she also appeared in the fifth season of the musical drama television series Empire.
This way, Pia Renee, who also auditioned for Season 20 of The Voice, collected almost an estimated $750K net worth (before May 2021).
Pia Renee Husband, Kids
Pia Renee coined herself as a servant of Love and that made her fans curious about her love life. But, the terms husband and boyfriend have never been mentioned in Pia’s life tale thus far.
For now, all we know is, Pia Renee is a proud single mother of two kids. Her son is the eldest who is also academically better than her youngest i.e. daughter.
Often Pia is spotted with the likes of “these two make me so proud to be a Woman. I have the extremely humbling opportunity to be a Mother to two amazing people” motherly quotes on her social media.
The kids are all grown up but still way mature for their age. (Eldest one turned 21 in Dec. 2020)
Pia’s daughter claimed she is Pia’s greatest achievement. Also, the young one seemed aware of their family’s situation i.e their father is not in the picture. Pia’s daughter referred to her absent father as “The Other DNA Giver”.
