Tila grew up in San Francisco California where she studied theatre at the prestigious American Conservatory Theatre Company. She moved to Pennsylvania along with her mother to be closer to family. While attending Wilkes University Tila reconnected with her now husband Kevin Walters. They have happily been together for thirteen years, married for five. They have three beautiful daughters together Nyasha who is eleven and twin girls Ailena Rose and Aliyah Victoria that they welcomed this past November (2011). They live in the historic section of Wilkes-Barre down from their alma mater Wilkes University. Tila graduated in 2002 with a BA in Theatre Arts. Tila has spent much of her time teaching theatre to the youth and perfecting her craft while performing with regional theatre groups. A few of her favorite performances were in Nunsense and Plaza Suite at the Grove. Also The Odd Couple and Doubt at the Electric Theatre Company. Tila has been fortunate to make long lasting friendships with many of the wonderful people she has worked with. All who add to her continued growth and make each experience memorable.
As a natural extension of her theatre roots Tila is a vocalist who has been studying since age eleven. She has performed with various groups and local musicians. Tila feels blessed to be with Picture Perfect Band now for over three years. “We are a family. It’s a very comfortable, relaxed, fun experience when we are on stage together. We are all professionals so we push each other to strive for more with each performance. That’s one reason I think we are so good and why we all just work together. It’s like chocolate and peanut butter, it’s meant to be together and you just can’t get enough. The most rewarding experiences for me are when people comment on how much they’ve enjoyed listening to our music. They want to find out about our next gig so they can come out again. That solidifies for me that we are doing our job.” Tila is looking forward to the years ahead with Picture Perfect Band helping to make each wedding even more memorable and every other gig better than the last.
