Cedrina releases new single, EXP, worldwide in over 200+ countries
Atlanta, Georgia – Singer-songwriter, Cedrina, has released her new single, "EXP" worldwide through digital rights management company, Lgmusicpub Publishing, LLC. Crediting some of the greatest R&B and Pop female songsters of all time with her dynamic vocalism skills, including the likes of Whitney Houston, Mary J. Blige and Toni Braxton, the single EXP captures the singer’s vast abilities in the areas of vocalization, art and creativity.
Being a contestant on the renowned global television series, American Idol, which has vastly contributed to the development of careers for the likes of Fantasia, Jennifer Hudson, Jordin Sparks, Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson, Cedrina received four “Yes’s” from the television series’ judges, advancing to the second-round of the competition before being eliminated. Nonetheless, achieving such a feat, specifically for an artist in the independent sector of the music industry, generally speaks volumes regarding the skillset and vocal abilities of this amazing artist.
As life will always bring some form of defeat, only to make one better, Cedrina went on to perform in Broadway, continuing to pursue her career despite what some would consider setbacks. Due to her exceptionally developed vocalist range and abilities, Cedrina performed in
some of the nation’s most famous Broadway musicals including “School House of Rock”, a Broadway musical that parallels the film, School of Rock starring Global Globe and People’s Choice Award nominee, actor Jack Black. She also performed in the overwhelmingly popular Broadway musical, Rent, featuring actor Taye Diggs and playwright, composer and lyricist Jonathan Larson. As many are not aware overall of the value and prominence of the Broadway and classical sector of the music industry, the original Broadway production, Rent, grossed over $208 million in 2008 alone.
A college graduate heralding her alma mater, the University of Wisconsin-Parkside, Cedrina, shows her advocacy and appreciation for the arts and intellectual fields throughout the melodic harmonies and advanced composition of this record. It was during her collegiate career that she joined the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and continued her singing and vocalist apprenticeship, performing throughout a multitude of singing performances in addition to performing for the Delta’s at specific events throughout her collegiate career.

In addition to Cedrina’s profound accolades and accomplishments, the song was also produced by recording and music producer Amahd “Ali The Greatest” Ali. Ali has credits with the likes of Dave East, Gunplay, Funk Flex and was featured and interviewed on Sirius XM’s satellite radio program, Sway In The Morning’s, Sway Universe Friday Fire Cypher.
The record created by these two professionals debuted January 10 , 2020 and marks the first
release from Cedrina at the start of the decade.

"Meet Cedrina Washington of Cedrina in Downtown"

Local Stories




Today we’d like to introduce you to Cedrina Washington.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Cedrina. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I actually moved to Atlanta two weeks after graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Parkside in 2013. I had nothing but my clothes and an old laptop that had years of old recordings on it. Upon my first couple of months in ATL, I tried to figure out my niche, things that worked for me, etc., including me even pursuing law school.

Around the same time period, I worked part-time for a local branch of a Boys & Girls Club center, where I met my now musical partner James Lewis. I was really a shy singer, so I really didn’t tell people I did music until James presented me with an opportunity to sing backing vocals for his upcoming show. The rest is really history.

I cut my first demo record in July of 2016, which stemmed from a sample of Maxwell’s 1999 hit, “Fortunate”. That song really gave me a motivational boost, not only for myself but to start performing more for local venues across the city, including the legendary “Apache Cafe”. I literally spent the remainder of the year leading into 2017 in the studio and would go on to release my debut single entitled, “Pieces”.

The record was featured by the notorious Soundcloud curators, Artist Intelligence Agency which would go on to accumulate over 50,000 plays. Since the release of that record, I have been gifted the opportunity to perform for multiple platforms, perfecting my artistry in studio & on-stage, and currently working on my debut EP, “All For Nothing” which is due to release later this year.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The road has not been a smooth one, to say the least. I think many artists go through their periods of ups and downs, but that story makes the journey that much more meaningful. As a woman in this profession, I think its key to value self-respect, and measure my worth when making decisions about my music.

I’ve been in situations where I may have felt someone didn’t have my best interest at heart, and I easily removed myself from those types of settings. I’ve passed up on what one may consider “the opportunity of a lifetime”, but truly, it may have not necessarily been the right opportunity for me. Using my best judgment and learning how to accept the timing of my success is an everyday struggle, but my determination to exceed overpowers it all.

Please tell us about Cedrina.
I am a singer/songwriter based out of Atlanta, GA. I have been involved in music since the age of 6, singing in local churches, school choirs, and theater arts. I would say I’m most known for my soulful sultry tones with a flare of old-school R&B.

That’s something that sets me apart from other artists as I love to incorporate melodies and sounds of our past musical generations and incorporate that into today’s music. I take it as a great reward when people compliment my talents by saying I resemble such a great artist that came before my time so that’s always a proud moment.

I think to date; my proudest moment would undeniably be performing at the Ludlow House in the Soho district of NYC. For me to only be pursuing music professionally for a short amount of time and the opportunities that have come in my path is almost a positive affirmation that I’m destined for success.

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
Looking back this probably wasn’t favorable, but I remember when I was 6 years old, my mom was teaching me how to ride a bike for the first time. I was really tom-boyish growing up and just wanted to keep up with the neighborhood kids. I remember going lap for lap and finally getting the hang of it, with my training wheels on of course.

I finally gained the courage to go around our complex without training wheels. My mom unscrewed them and sent me on my way. I don’t remember making it one full lap, and I had to be maybe half a mile from where I last saw my mother. Out of nowhere, three neighborhood boys came flying out of a nearby tunnel and scared me so bad that I completely fell off my bike and slid into the ground face first. Ouch right!

Apparently, my mom heard me screaming so loud she came running to my aide. The car ride to the hospital and waking up to over 40 stitches on my forehead was my last memory from that day.

Why is this a favorite memory you ask? Well, let’s just say my lifelong beauty mark resembles a lot of Harry Potter’s.
