"Patiently Waiting: Charlotte North Carolina's Seretha Lichez is ready for her turn."

To say that R&B is diluted is an understatement at best. The current crop of singers and starlets possess Janet Jackson like moves and bodies, but when it comes to vocal talent, let’s just say that there’s a lot left to be desired.

One newcomer has a whole new spin on the world of rhythm and blues. “We need talent. There are a lot of good performers, but not a lot or good singers,” says 20 year old Charlotte North Carolina native, Seretha Lichez.

Developing her sound since she was 12, Seretha has set off a blaze on the mixtape circuit and the internet with her singles, “Clothes Off” and “Hey Shawty” Since deciding to pursue this as a career path, she’s put her best foot forward to be as different as possible from her contemporaries.

“My sound is unique. I write my own stuff. I make my music very diverse so you might here some pop, you might here some R&B, you might here some gospel, it really depends on how I feel at the time.

With influences like Mary J. Blige, Beyonce, Anita Baker, Vanessa Bell Armstrong, its clear why the youngest in charge stresses her separation from her peers.

“There are a lot of good dance songs, but they only last for a short time. When I look around, I don’t hear any songs that I feel have any longevity. I bring everything, and I take that next step to let my voice be heard.”

Currently, she’s in the process of putting the finishing touches on her debut album. With production from underground beat makers like Bionic and Blaze, she’s poised to take her sound to the next level.

“I see so many things happening this year,” gushed Seretha. “I have that exposure right now, and I see myself continuing to grow and mature as a person.”

With her management team in tow, Marets Entertainment, the skies the limit for the young wonder as she plans to be the next R&B sensation to rep the QC.

“I feel like Charlotte is just now being heard. I mean, before, all you could say was Jodeci, but now we got Fantasia and others doing their thing, and they’re coming back to Charlotte and getting acts and bringing them up with them, and that’s positive. I feel like this year, I’m gonna sign a deal”

THE PRINCESS IS READY TO TAKE HER THRONE

Seretha Licehz, future soul of tobacco road!

Speak very low if you’re planning on calling Seretha Lichez a newcomer when it comes to music. This incredible songstress has been singing since the tender age of 3 years old. "I remember my favorite song being ‘Superwoman’ by Karen White. Whenever I heard that song I instantly started singing. There were times when I would perform that song in front of family and friends.”

The Charlotte North Carolina native, Lichez (pronounced Lashae), like most southerners is no stranger to the church. After finding she had a lovely voice and natural charisma, her parents wasted no time putting Seretha in the church choir, talent shows and pageants. "I remember my first solo,” says Lichez. “I was only 5 years old and I sung ‘Away in a Manger’. I don’t know what it was about that performance, but people started crying and I received a standing ovation. From that day forth, all I wanted to do was sing, and keep making people feel whatever it was they felt that day.”

An incredible vocalist with a strong stage presence, Lichez is currently preparing her debut release. Working with top names like Blayze, Bionik, Globe Trakkers, Beat Mizers, CarDan, and Cakemixx, her singles “Hey Shawty” and “Clothes Off” are burning up myspace and mixtapes. Through her team at Marets Entertainment/Carolina Circuit Music Group, Seretha has managed to build a strong regional buzz and plan on taking that global!

Lichezs ambitious work ethic has already earned her the crown as the "Carolina Princess," making her the most anticipated artist coming from the South in 2007. She’s hosted mixtapes for DJ Chuck T and DJ Barry Bee and has plans to finish up her solo album this year. She sums up the difference between her and her contemporaries like this.

“Today, you hear a lot of songs that are good for right now, but you can’t hear yourself playing them in like 10 years. All my music is made for longevity. When people here my music, I don’t want them to just say it’s a good song. I want them to say, ‘yeah I feel this song’ I want them to relate to it like they went through the same thing. If my music does that to people, then I feel I’m doing my job.”
