Tell us about the musical influences and inspirations that helped to shape your career.
I grew up in my church choir so it starts there. I was a part of a great college choir at the University of Illinois Black Chorus. Their focus was on the Black Sacred music tradition under the direction of Dr Ollie Watts Davis. I also discovered Donny Hathaway in college and fell in love with how his music made me feel like the divine was touching our pain.
