I’m a Motown girl!
Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, music runs through my veins. My love for all things music is rooted in that Motown sound. My music education began on the floor of my mother’s bedroom, where I would sit and listen to old records of the greats – The Supremes, Stevie Wonder, and those tempting Temptations!
When it was time to make those studies a bit more formal than snacks and a record player, I headed to the National Treasure, Morgan State University. There I received both my Bachelor’s and Master’s in Music with a concentration in Classical Voice. During my matriculation, I performed worldwide in places such as The Czech Republic, China, and Italy. I also was blessed enough to perform in such venues as Carnegie Hall and The Kennedy Center, and to be a part of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra’s performance tour of Bernstein Mass (Grammy-nominated for Best Classical Album). I knew early on I wanted to make music my career, but it wasn’t until I stumbled upon musical theatre that my heart exploded with passion! After joining the university’s spring musical Ragtime, I found my musical home.
Shifting from classical choral to theatre, my career flourished! I've performed extensively with regional theaters, national tours, and even internationally onboard cruise ships.
Then 2020 happened...
In response to the quietness of the pandemic’s dark theaters, I continued to perform. I produced and performed a full virtual series from my living room called Living Room Sessions. The Sessions originated years ago as a live solo cabaret and has been featured on Norwegian Cruise Line and locally in New York. It was an amazing transformation sending it from my home into the homes of others.
