Rexha played trumpet and taught herself to play guitar and piano.[21][22] Rexha attended Tottenville High School on Staten Island,[23] where she took part in a variety of musicals.[9][17] She also joined the choir, while still in high school.[22] After joining the choir, she discovered that her voice was a coloratura soprano.[24][25] Rexha lists Coldplay, the Cranberries, Lauryn Hill, Alanis Morissette, and Kanye West as musical influences.[26][27]
