Autianya (which means sister angel) was a dancer with groups like N.W.A, LL Cool J and Eazy-E before a car crash in the early nineties took away the use of her legs. After the crash, Auti began to start performing again, only this time in her wheelchair. The accident hasn’t seemed to have slowed her down at all. In fact, in 2002 she won the gold medal for dancing in the World Championships of Performing Arts. She now keeps up both her singing and dancing careers and was featured in the 2006 film "Wings of Legacy". You can read about the rest of her life on her website’s bio, sehr interessant.
