PA'R Anderson (Pronounced "Pear" is a family nickname, short for Paris) was born in Columbus, Ohio February 24th. Raised by her Grandma "Ruth" she was openly exposed to the performing Arts at a young age. Ruth took PA'R to plays, ballets and enthusiastically introduced her to classic films such as "The Temptations", "The 5 Heart Beats" and their all time favorite "Whats love got to do with it”.
By the age of 12 PA’R had a burning desire to no longer “Watch” what she loved, but “Do” what she loved.
One inspired summer morning, Paris grabbed the yellow pages and called every theater she could find. After countless calls, she stumbled across “The Columbus Children's Theater”, who were casting kids her age for the hilarious Christmas show “The Best Christmas Pageant Event”. Unfortunately PA`R(s) excitement didn’t last long because her audition didn’t go well. Immediately discouraged, she asked the director for her head shot back, assuming he was not going to cast her.
To her surprise he declined and offered an added role, it was one line “Yes Mrs. Beverly” . The statement “There are no small parts only small actors” never made more sense and created a confidence that led to more prominent roles in “The Music Man” “Robin Hood” “Christmas Crisis in Mistletoe Mesa” and others…..
Theatre was just the beginning for the budding star. PA’R picked up dance classes and began writing music. Loving it so much she picked up a dance minor in college. After transferring from ASU to Otterbein she met two guys (A hip hop artist and vocalist) the chemistry was so good they became a trio and named themselves “Liberti Movement”. Feeling unstoppable the trio auditioned for “XFACTOR" (2011) and made it all the way to Hollywood’s bootcamp. After being eliminated the trio became a singing duo and renamed themselves “Libertye”.
Libertye headlined 2 China tours (2013-2014), recieved months of syndicated radio spins for their single “Lose Control” and performed/ networked with many Hollywood clubs, Events and celebrities. After a solid 3 year run, the Duo split due to creative differences and PA`R began her solo venture.
Changing her name (formally TokioPear) it was important that in her transition from duo to solo artist everything was authentic. Everything needed to be simply Paris.
While starting a new venture can be scary PA’R is preparing herself for the journey. Currently working on her “EP” it’s only a matter of time before the world knows the “Tina Turner” inspired entertainer "PA`R".
