You are probably correct.

However, on this site:
http://webapps.uni-koeln.de/cgi-bin/tamil/recherche
there is a Sanskrit entry for riya. I can't really interpret the abbreviations and conventions the site uses, but I believe the entry says riya relates to rai, which means "barking, sound, noise". Maybe this is the origin of the singer theory?
