Bio

What do you say about an artist destined for greatness?
If you are the kind of musician who, like Dominique Rougeaux, looks at her music as an expression of her own life experiences, you create. And while being mindful of the impact that music has, you create music that reflects who you are, what you're about and what you represent.
A rare artist among her own generation, a singer, songwriter, and musician who combines an east coast energy, with her naitve deep south flava, Dominique sees her music as a continuous, on going journey.

Born May 29, 1985, this native Texan realized her love for music while singing in her church. Growing up in one of the roughest neighborhoods, on Houston's southside, Dominique used her deep rooted belief in God, and her musical talent to stay off the streets and off drugs, and to stay focused on school.
An avid music lover by age 5, she had already began singing solo in churches in the Houston area, and by age 6, began traveling to other cities, showcasing her musical talents, which soon earned her the nickname "The Little Southern Songbird". Soon being recognized as one of the most talented new arrivals on the southern gospel music scene, singing with the likes of Yolanda Adams, Reverend Shirley Ceasar, Kirk Franklin, The Soul Stirrers, The Gospel Train, and Donald Edwards and the Heavenly Voices Community Choir, to name a few.
By age 10, Dominique had already began competing and winning countless talent shows, and showcases, and also started writing gospel as well as R and B. Already and accomplished saxaphonist, Dominique was accepted into Houston's High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (HSPVA), where she played Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, and won Best Actress, as well as getting a best supporting actress award for her performance and The Lady in Red, in the schools rendition of Shange Ntozake's, For Colored Girls Who Have considered Suicide When The Rainbow Is Enough, and her performance in The Sound Of Music.

With major influences ranging from Dinah Washington and Billie Holliday, to Alicia Keys and Beyonce Knowles, and influences from country music, including Trace Adkins, The Dixie Chicks, and Martina McBride, as well as Dolly Pordon, Patsy Cline, and Aaron Neville; to hip hop artist such as Eve, Foxy Brown, and Queen Latifah.
Demonstrating her innovative, and diverse approach to music, while staying true to her spiritual and southern roots, is very important.
"I'm a God fearing, southern girl down to my soul, and i'm very, very proud of that. I never want to loose my Texas roots, that's a part of who I am, a part of me, and that's something that i'll carry with me no matter where I go."
