Bio

Allana Muhammad is a New Soul singer of classic skills and comportment. She has accumulated a distinguished collection of achievements in her musical career bolstered by her strong musical background. At a very young age, she sang for James Earl Jones, and also had the opportunity to become a background singer for Ray Charles. She gained experience and paid her musical dues in the traditional manner, by singing in church choirs during her youth, which was an important aspect of her musical background and evolving spiritual development. At home, her father plays jazz upright bass, a musical family that goes four generations back. From a young age, she was involved in theatrical production as well, her first profesional acting debut was at the age of 15, performing in a cast of August Wilson’s, Joe Turner’s Come and Gone with an Off-Broadway production company from New York City. She was formally educated in musical/vocal performance at Prairie View A&M University and has also sung with such gospel greats as Kirk Franklin and Shirley Caesar. At the age of 14, she was blessed to perform on Bobby Jones Gospel Show, on BET. In the secular music world, she has also performed with the R&B luminary, Howard Hewitt. She has sung background for many local rap artists in the New York, Houston and Dallas/Ft. Worth area, and has contributed her vocals to demo CDs too many to mention.

Allana has dedicated her life to her Music and considers it a ministry of Love. Allana’s empathic spirit recognizes the pain and suffering that is apparent throughout so much of the world these days. She believes that music is a powerful tool, to be used in healing the souls of people. Evoking the musical/spiritual traditions of ancient and modern African peoples, she understands that music possesses the power to change people’s minds and hearts. She has committed to using her voice and her gift to teach the art of love, to re-teach her listeners how to love, because she considers love to a fundamental building block in the co-creation of societal harmony, for all societies and peoples across the globe. She believes that, somehow, the art of love has been lost, and also that it has been subsumed in popular and secular music. Music heals wounds and, through song, the value and necessity of music to the human soul will become an imperative and a force used for spiritual and mental health, rather than for material reasons alone, by facilitating greater cooperation and the healing of racial and national divisions.
