ABOUT Rachelle Ferrell
Pennsylvania native Rachelle Ferrell’s music career began at age six, which many speculate contributed to the “development of her startling six and change octave range.” Ferrell perfected her smoldering ballads and harmonies while singing with the likes of Patti LaBelle, Lou Rawls and Vanessa Williams. She has become one of the most sought after contemporary jazz artists. http://www.rachelleferrell.com/
