In 2006, after more than two decades as a professional jazz and r&b vocalist, I began writing my own material, drawing from my musical and personal journeys and experiences thus far and best described as “higher vibe soul:” a hip-shaking blend of gospel, jazz, R&B and Latin rhythms combined with a heart-opening, inspirational message!
To date, I have composed hundreds of songs and chants, many of which are included on the following recording projects:
-Change The World (2007)
-I Am Becoming... (2008)
-Go Ahead & Love (2011)
-64 Songs of Love, Light & Healing (2012)
-Say, 'YES!' (2016)
Please visit my "listen" and "64 songs" pages to experience the music for yourself! You can also purchase my new album here!
