I am a Jazz/R&B ballad singer with a smooth, silky, baratone voice that warms you like hot chocolate on a cold winter day! With influances like: Nat king Cole, Donny Hathaway, Teddy Pendergrass, and Will Downing, I consider myself very "Ol' School".

Biography

I concider my music to be a cross between Jazz/R&B. Something on the order of Will Downing. I love to bring that Nat King Cole feeling of music to today's listeners. I got involved with music in the church. Singing my first solo at age 5. Coming up in school I played piano, trombone, violin, viola, and cello, but I didn't reallize till I got to high school, that singing was my calling. I didn't take it seriously until I was offered a partial scholorship to Berkley School of Music in Boston, Mass., but due to other finacial restrains, I was unable to attend. I graduated from Tennessee State Univ. with a degree in Music Education w/Voice Concentration. I've sang in various choirs and performed in operas and plays alike. After 10 years of putting my music career on hold for family, this is my time!
