Yolanda L. Mayor (born August 4, 1995), professionally known as Yoli Mayor (pronounced yoh-lee mah-yore) is a soul singer and songwriter from Miami, Florida.
In 2017, Yoli auditioned for America's Got Talent, featuring judges Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B, and Howie Mendel. Judges gave her standing ovations following several of her performances, alongside DJ Khaled the featured guest judge during her 2nd audition (most notably her performance of "Love on the brain" by Rihanna). Ultimately she ended her run as a semifinalist for the show's 12th season.
Yoli was featured in Miami New Times People 2017: Meet the Most Fascinating People in Miami.
Yoli was raised in Little Havana, where she currently remains, by her Cuban parents and grandmother, Yolanda, whom she is named after. Yoli is a big sister to her brother Erik Mayor and the 2 children were inundated with musical influences from birth by their parents. Their taste in music ranged from 80's pop/dance hits to mainstream hip-hop/rap, as well as their native Latin influences with salsa and merengue. Yoli absorbed music immediately, her mother stating that she was singing before she was even fully talking.  
When she was 16, Yoli wrote, starred and directed her first play while at Academy of Arts & Minds High School in Coconut Grove, FL.
When she was 18 years old, Yoli got her start performing regularly as a singer/bartender at The Cabaret in Miami Beach, FL. One year later, she was able to secure herself as the resident in-house female singer at El Tucan in Brickell, where she currently remains, in between performing her own shows of original music and covers. 
Yoli has been fine-tuning her original songs for her upcoming EP, due in 2018.
