She is an international vocalist-songwriter, recording artist and activist, best known as the featured vocalist with Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter Michael Franks since 1993. In the late 1970s, she moved to New York to pursue a degree in Theology at Lehmans College in the Bronx. Performing in music clubs at night to support her college tuition, she met Big Nick Nicholas (an influential teacher of legendary tenor saxophonist John Coltrane) who became her musical and performance mentor.
She travels around the world performing, conducting her vocal workshop series and working with international schools to help build awareness of the importance of art and culture in society. “A world where peace is possible first begins with respect for all life and recognition of the unique diversities within all cultures.” After 40 years she has returned to college life to work on a Bachelor’s in Liberal Arts and Humanities.
