Tinashe – Parents, Height & Boyfriend

You could describe the Zimbabwean descent as a beautifully endowed, independent, elegant and charismatic person. These qualities, however, do not give a full definition of her being. The amazing damsel lives as an American singer, songwriter, dancer, record producer, a super iconic model whose style on set has been one of the best shots ever and an actress. Tinashe launched into the world with courage and has made a huge name with her angelic soprano voice.

Tinashe’s Age & Ethnicity

She was born as the eldest child on February 6, 1993, in Lexington, Kentucky, with the full name Tinashe Jorgensen Kachingwe. She was named in the Shona language which translates to ‘We are with God’; the damsel’s father, Micheal, was an immigrant from Zimbabwe and of the Shona people though her mom belongs to the ethnic mix of Danish, Italian, Norwegian, Irish and English. The stunning damsel is from a mixed ethnicity but has most records pointing her to be of Zimbabwean descent.

Her elementary and junior high school days are not detailed, however, we know she attended Crescenta Valley High School where she stayed a year before leaving to chase music as a career fully. You could say that Tinashe’s career path was laid out at a very tender age, her parents guided her through and let her pursue a career after her heart. Just at four, she took classes in dancing and specialized in ballet, tap, and also focused on learning jazz music. She didn’t stop at that but went on various dance competitions as a member of a dance company till the age of 18.

She soon moved into acting and was privileged to score a role in top movies like Cora Unashamed (2000), Call Me Claus (2001), Masked and Anonymous (2003), and two TV series: Rocket Power (2004) and Avatar: The Last Airbender (2007). She also got a role in the TV series Out Of Jimmy’s Head, and Two and a Half Men.
