Growing up in a house of a jazz/gospel singer, my mom was my idol along with Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Sara Vaughn, Billie Holiday, and Mahalia Jackson. I started singing in church at the early age of five. Throughout the years, I entered every school talent show and won. At age twelve, I joined a local gospel choir, Memphis Community Singers, became the youngest member , lead vocalist and gained gained notarity on Oris Mays Show, Bobby Jones Gospel, and traveled every year to Ebenezer Baptist Church in Chicago, Illinois for the NAACP/ P.U.S.H. celebration gracing the stage with Shirley Ceasar, Dottie Peeples, Walter and Tremaine Hawkins.
In 1992, I met Sam Fallie (Mr Sam). We became best friends. Blessed by fate, we were destined to join our talents. We began collaborating at various events. I moved out of town briefly. In 2010, I moved back to Memphis. Sam and I started dating and I started as a background vocalist for him shortly after. We spent a lot of time in the studio together. Songs written for other female artists such as Sheba Potts- Wright, I would record demos so they could get the feel of the song before they actually recorded it.
John Ward, CEO of Ecko Records and Sam heard a Betty Wright feel in my tone and decided it was time for me to showcase my talents as a solo artist in Southern Soul. Sam wrote Tonight’s Another Night to fill slot 7 on Sweet Blues Mix 11 compilation CD . Ecko Records released it August 2013. The first year released Great Britain and Canada picked it up.
