For those who don’t know, you need to know.  For those who do know, you don’t need me telling you why Rachelle Ferrell is so respected and admired by all of our musical greats and in the jazz community.  There is a reason Jennifer Hudson, Gladys Night, Stevie Wonder and the list goes on and on, can be found at one her live performances.  With a little bit of Sarah Vaughan to a little bit of just about everything but the kitchen sink, this contemporary jazz artist creates, channels and delivers styles that nobody has even heard of yet.  This is someone that was born to sing and perform music.  We hear over and over about certain singers and hopeful talent rising up in the business who are tagged with the word unique.  I’m encouraged to watch these new singers to develop and grow.  Rachelle Ferrell on the other hand is the definition of the word “unique.”
But don’t take my word for it just listen to what “the voice” can do.

Here are two videos  (live) below showing off her jaw dropping vocal abilities and her passionate commitment in how it is delivered.
