Rachel Black has been a dynamic performer since the age of eight. During one her mothers many operatic recitals, Rachel joined her mother, and accomplished professional opera singer, on stage and brought the house down with her solo rendition of O'Mio Ba Bino Caro, an Italian aria. Ms. Black began her classical training at age four and that was the first performance of many more to come. Although she was being groomed for a classical career, Rachel was so inspired by the music of today (Hip-hop, R&B, Gospel, and Jazz) that she decided to use her gift to sing and write soul music. Artists like Stevie Wonder, Billy Holiday, Chakka Khan, and the Emotions helped to shape Rachel's vocal style. She pours out her heart in her debut independent release entitled 'Rachel Black'. Her music is inspirational, fun, loving, and very powerful. It is so much like her life, happy or/and sad but always on key! As you witness Rachel's collaboration with noted Songwriter/Producer/Keyboardist Morris Hayes of Prince's New Power Generation, you will hear the incredible voice that is often mistaken for Beyonce Knowles. And not to mention her song writing skills, they take on a life of their own. Lush production hugs the ear catching backgrounds on all tracks. Ask her what her favorite songs are on the new EP and she will say Keep on(5) and More(2). 'These two are so dear to me because they have a good message!', says the enthusiastic artist. 'The inspiration for Keep on comes from the negativity I have encountered while trying to pursue my dream, You have to Keep on pushin' on and don't let NOBODY discourage you!' While talking about the song MORE, she says this': Being in any relationship today is hard, and God knows I've a hard time, but the most important thing I've learned is you have to keep giving More and More because the bible says the more you give the more receive in everything you do, and I'm a witness to that, it is so true.' When you hear the opening bars of More, you'll know why it's her favorite. She has performed with all kinds of artists including 2Live Crew, Dave Hollister, Kelly Price, Bow Wow, and more. 'Performing is what keeps me going, I love to feel the crowd and sing to them, whether it is 15 or 15,000, I sing for them!' Ms Black states. With her distinctive beauty and depth of talent you will join the growing legions of believers in Rachel Black and her special gift. Rachel's hit single 'more' is now recieving airplay in Florida and Minnesota! We hope you'll like it too.
