Robyn Troup (born February 11, 1988 in Houston, Texas) is an American singer who was the winner of the "My Grammy Moment" contest organized by NARAS and Yahoo! Music and announced at the 49th Annual Grammy Awards on February 11, 2007.[1] Through online and text message voting, she was placed in the top three along with 30-year-old Africa Miranda and 22-year-old Brenda Radney and attended the Grammy ceremony. Jennifer Hudson announced the winner and Robyn Troup immediately went onstage to perform "Ain't No Sunshine" and "My Love" with Justin Timberlake.[2]

Troup attended Yates High School in Houston. She is currently enrolled at University of Southern California.[3]

She previously auditioned for American Idol Season 6 during Summer 2006.[1] She made it past the initial site auditions to the "Hollywood" selection phase later in 2006, but was cut in the second (group) round.[1] The episode showing this was first aired on February 13, 2007.

Since winning the "My Grammy Moment" contest, Troup has recorded a cover of "Back in Black" with Carlos Santana and rapper Nas for Santana's latest release, Guitar Heaven and is currently in the studio writing and recording her full-length debut.[4]
