Without music, life would be a mistake

I was four years old when I had my first solo in church. The song was “Seek Seek Seek And Ye Shall Find”, a mantra that has been a mainstay throughout my life. I knew as a small child, I wanted to be a singer, and I’ve had the great fortune of making that dream a reality. From cabarets, to cruise ships, background singing to Broadway, I’ve been blessed to find what it is I sought as a child.


Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.

In 1989, the MLK Center took us kids to New York City to see "Sarafina, The Music of Liberation". It was the first time many of us had been to the big apple, but none where nearly as excited as I was. I remember sitting in the theater, and as the lights dimmed, I knew I wasn't going to walk out of there the same. Just by thumbing through the playbill, I knew my spirit was about to be changed. And by the end of the performance that is exactly what happened. Watching these beautiful black children with skin darker than my own, open their mouths, and sing these incredible harmonies, telling this heart wrenching story of Apartheid in South Africa, moved me beyond what my young self could comprehend. One thing, was clear for me that afternoon. I knew right then and there that I wanted to be an actor. I wanted to be on that stage with them, telling that story, feeling what they felt, and singing what they were singing! I chased that dream around the globe, and have been blessed to be able share that passion with others.

Over the course of the pandemic, I developed a new cabaret act: "Here and Now: The Music of Luther Vandross." Through a series of stories and song, I take the audience on a musical journey of one of the premier singers of our time. This 60 minute self-contained act, is the perfect show for both novice listeners and die-hard fans. Click the link below to check out a short clip.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, "Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?" Actually, who are you not to be?
~Marianne Williamson
