“The most unmusical person can feel the heart of soul reverberating throughout the music of Rashod Holmes.” – A&R Select - A&R Select



Artist Name: Rashod Holmes
Age: 20
Hometown: Angie, LA

What age when you first started to sing?
I first started singing at the age of 3.

Most people started out singing in church. Was that pretty much of your life?
Well, that is actually where I began singing. I was in the choir, and we needed someone to sing lead on
a song entitled "Reason Why I Love Him So." So there I am, this little tiny boy with my hand raised so anxiously wanting to get chosen. I was chosen, so I ran down to get the microphone, and began to sing. Afterwards everyone looked as if they had just seen a ghost (totally Shocked).
Since then my life has been centered around singing everywhere I go.

Your song "I'm Sorry Baby", was it written about something you were going through?
Not exactly, It was written for those ladies that can't seem to forgive us men when we make one mistake.
You may tell them your sorry and it may seem like in that moment they have forgiven you, when deep in their heart they are still holding that against you. So men when you get that kind of lady, just play Rashod‘s "I'm Sorry Baby," and I assure you it will make everything alright.

Do you work with a vocal coach?
Yes, I've actually been getting vocal training for about a year and a half now. I begin vocal training my freshmen year in college at Dillard University in New Orleans under the wonderful Dr. Valerie Ann Francis. She is an amazing woman. Then due to hurricane Katrina I transferred to a college in Belton, TX where I
received training from Mr. George Hogan, an excellent vocal instructor. I must say vocal training is one of my best decisions so far. It definitely helps improve that talent us artist already have.

What would you say is your style of music?
I consider my style of music to be R&B/Soul.

Who are your inspirations, musically?
Well from a musical stand point I would have to say Christina Aguilera, Anthony Hamilton, Alicia Keys, India Arie, Avant, Keyshia Cole, Brain McKnight, Mariah Carey, and so many more.

Do you do any stage performances? What you do to prepare before going onstage?
Most definitely! That is by far my favorite part of this musical journey, performing. To prepare before going onstage I like to listen to those artist that inspire me, and then have a moment of down time where I focus on my performance (prayerfully).

What's your favorite song you recorded so far?
I must say that "Faithful" is my Favorite. It is an anthem for all those lovers out there that find the temptation of cheating hard to deal with.

Your favorite celebrity crush?
Unfortunately for me, my favorite celebrity crush just recently tied the knot. So my favorite now would definitely be Jessica Alba. She is such a lady with a charm.

What would be a "dream come true" for you?
A dream come true for me would be to be a successful Recording Artist that touches lives across the world through my music with this gift I am so thankful for.

Thank You so much for your time and I wish you best in accomplishing your success and making your dream into a reality.

Bio

Rashod Holmes

Rashod Holmes, It may not be a name you’ve encountered before but that doesn’t change anything about the anointing that God has placed upon his life. Musical power like this isn’t something to be learned – it’s something innate, something you’re born with. And Holmes boasts some of the richest musical genes around.

Central Texas’s rising Christian Pop/R&B artist will be releasing his full length album “A City Redeemed” in Fall 2011. His deep-rooted Christian background and undeniable faith is what helped him create this amazing, God-centered album.

Angie, Louisiana is the original home of Rashod prior to relocating due to hurricane Katrina. He lost a many material possession in the storm but was able to cling on to his deep seeded faith in Jesus Christ, the greatest possession of all. “I know the music alone will not save their lives, but when people stop and listen to my heart through this music and lyrical content which is rooted in the word of God, I pray that they are moved to the point of opening their hearts to hear and to receive what the Lord would speak.” This is just what Rashod’s music will do to its many listeners. It’s a chance to fully open people’s minds up to the truth of God’s love and saving power.

Passion and Soul

Music is about passion and soul, Holmes never fails to deliver when ministering to souls for the kingdom. There’s no doubting music’s ability to bring equanimity and serenity into the heart of even the most anxious person. “Music is the peace within me,” says Holmes. And his music is the peace within listeners. There’s no escaping the warm, welcoming tones of Holmes’ top shelf soulful compositions.

The Artist at Work

Holmes is a Minister of Music at Dominion Life Chapel in Belton, TX. His experience with music has taken him to perform at many venues across the US, even Walt Disney World. Rashod has also taken part in a number of collaborations with many respectable artists such as TheLankanKid, Luis T and In His Presence Dance Academy. He has announced the release of a new album this fall titled "A City Redeemed" featuring the new single "Stop and Praise!", “All Said and Done”, “So Far Away” and more!
