How would you describe your musical journey thus far?
It’s been a lot of highs and a lot of lows (laughs). It’s been so fulfilling and I would say its been a journey to finding my true self.
Give us all the deals on your new music.
Well, I just released an album called Pretty World: Bergman Tribute Album (Alan and Marilyn Bergman) a few months ago. It’s like a love letter to them and all their songs. There are 12 songs they handpicked for me, some that were never released. Stevie Wonder is on it, Kirk Whalum, Greg Phillinganes (who has worked with Michael Jackson). I’m working on a Christmas EP that includes five songs. This month I will be releasing an original single. Next year, I’m going to be releasing new music. I would categorize it as soul/R&B.
Tell us about your role in The Clark Sisters biopic.
I just filmed this biopic. It’s called The Clark Sisters: The First Ladies of Gospel. I play Dorinda Clark-Cole, one of the sisters. It’s so amazing because I grew up not only listening to their music but I also loved Dorinda Clark-Cole as an artist. It’s pretty amazing and full-circle to be able to play her as a character.
