Summer’s energy, power and musical finesse mesmerizes audiences. It’s a clairvoyant voyage of soul, jazz and passion during her performance. Whether, jazz, soul or theater she will leave you breathless. To quote the AJC on her live performance: “She has Vocal prowess”. In a world that she was told her it was not looking for girls that looked like her to become popular singers, the heavens had another plan. She began her professional singing career at the ripe old age of 11 yrs old when she had her first paid gig. From there she went on to have a song written specifically for her by a writer who said, He was “Inspired after hearing her voice at an audition.” She was flown from Albany, GA to state of the art studios to record the song at the age of 14 yrs old. The song was distributed nationally and internationally. She has toured the US, Costa Rica and Belize. After that song’s success she was brought back to record again. It is during those years that she toured and promoted the songs. She not only cut her teeth as a studio singer but perfected the beauty of live performance. And she has never looked back. To quote the Atlanta Journal Constitutions Article on her live performance “She has Vocal prowess” August 26, 2004.
