This Soulful Sultry Songtress sings to the soul of all.
Graced in her abililty to do so , she does it so well.
The fiery sacred innermost self passion that is hers, and most unique.
To move this scribe to set to word simpley to praise her, her gifted voice and beautiful self.
As such truth inspires, and as to herself so does others creativiely gifted.
Thus in this manner to the native templed richly in rich earthern hues, lustrous, beautified and deep is the voice of this songtress.
I was truely and deservedly honored. - A. Jenkins: Scribe Scholer 12/19/06


On a recent Saturday night, the Cotton Club showed no signs of slowing. A six-piece band played originals and old Motown hits to a packed house. "Philly, Washington--is anyone here from New York?" singer Pamela Cornelius asked, to laughter. Pamela and the six-piece band run through a menagerie of songs, heavy on the golden age of big bands. This young woman is unique is her own style and a delight to the ear. Her interaction with the audience is superaltive and even funny. She will get you up to dance. A pleasureable night of song and dance...Erik Shilling November 27, 2007. - VillageVoice

Since 1923, the Cotton Club has been both a cultural icon of Harlem and a prime example of hard work in the face of ongoing adversity. While recent events have left the future of the Club in question-it still celebrates the culture of Jazz eternal. Pamela Cornelius the singer steps onto the stage and fireworks appear. She sings tunes from an age of music that is disapating among her peers. Belting out note after note, yet there is no stopping her. One would wonder where the enery comes from. This guiding light is part of the future of the Harlem Club and it will be hard to take them both down.

Bio

Pamela is an experienced as well as a flavorful vocalist, who has been singing since the tender age of three. She was destined to be a musical sensation, not just because of her family's background in music; Arthur Prysock her godfather is the instrument of her inseption. Kennth Romain his bass player and Shirley McPherson a background singer are her parents. Her uncle Donald McPherson was the original lead singer of the ledenganry singing group "The Main Ingredient".
Pamela sings every where she goes, even while being born on the Queensboro Bridge she wouldn't stop crying.
Once during her many trips to the Apollo Theater, Al Green noticed her sitting at every perfomance, One of his background singers came down with a sore throat and Pamela was asked to step in she was only seventeen at the time. She sang with his band for their last three perfomances. Also at the Apollo she got the chance to take a photo with the Queen of Soul Ms Aretha Franklin and the photo is on the wall.
Singing as a soloist in the church has always been one of Pamela's passions. Singing with the United Negro College Fund Choir on the stage of Carnegie Hall along side of Tramine Hawkins was a great thrill but not as much fun as singing duets with the great Cissy Huston on tour in Texas and Mexico.
Pamela's many talents have taken her around the country and around the world. Pamela has played before the Govenor of Barbados and the Ambassadors of Tobago and Morocco. As well as an entertainer for the Chandler Cruise Lines aboard the SS Britanis, traveling to and from Mexico.
Pamela was one of the many entertainers who performed under tents at the "1994" Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway. She was invited back as one of the first black performers to be televised on the Norwegian Grammy show in 1995, where the Storytellers received a Grammy. She was a part of that recording as well as three other recorded CD's.
When at home, Pamela can be seen in many clubs in and around the tri-state area which include: The Cotton Club, The Sugar Bar, Lenox Lounge, Showman's, St. Nick's Pub, Mobay's, Orbit's, Yvonne's, Bridgewater's, Bubby's, Mingles, The Supper Club and the Sahara.
Pamela has toured some great festivals all around the world which include: Ramua Blues (Finland), Molde Jazz, Notodden jazz, and Oslo Jazz festivals (Norway), Savannah Jazz (Georgia), Gullah Jazz (So. Carolina), Barbados, Bermuda, Mexico, St, Thomas and St. Croix.
She is currently working on her second music project this time it's gospel music. Yet to be named.
Her first project "Life Of A SuperStar" is doing quite well and many seem to enjoy it. they fall in love with "Scoouch". Pamela is the composer of four of these tunes.
Pamela has added a new element to her adversity; she has started acting once again. She had staring roles in the elementry school verison of "Top Hat and Tales", In middle school she landed the lead role of Luddy Mae in "Purlie" and in high school she stared as Maria in their production of "West Side Story". She also landed the Off-Broadway lead in "A Mother Cried For Her Children" and "The Waiting Church" writen by Mattie Wilson. Early last year Pamela also landed a part of the Off-Broadway production of Emmitt Thrower's "Barry White guided by Destiny". Pamela's film credits are the 1998 film The Day the Ponies Came Home; PUSH a film by director Lee Daniels, and will be filming a vocal part in a film by Orville Matherson called "Saving Grace"
Pamela is also the lead singer of two bands one is "1257" the love of her life and her own band called "PMC Connection".
Vocalist, percussionist, songwriter, producer and costume designer are just some of the many things that make Pamela who Pamela was destined to become.
