- This event has passed.
Greensboro’s Vanessa Ferguson is not just a Season 12 semi finalist on NBC’s “The Voice” (team Alicia Keys), she’s a songwriter, actor, producer and musician. Vanessa was raised by her grandmother and grew up singing with her family. She enrolled in piano lessons at age five and competed in her first competition in fifth grade. Prince, Sting and Jill Scott are just a few of her musical influences.
Pianist, music educator, vocalist and NCCU graduate Le’Andra Williams serves as music director and keyboardist for this ambitious, never-before-seen project. Le’Andra’s talents began at the age of three. Like many, she began to play in her hometown churches as the Sunday pianist. The band: Theresa Renee (vocals), Sinclair Palmer (bass) Jasmine Best (drums), Emily Musolino (guitar), and Shaena Ryan Martin (baritone sax)
WNCU’s Friday night Funk, Old School and Disco show and its host, DJ Travis Gales, simulcast live from Durham Central Park at 7 p.m.
