From: FL, United States
This dynamic vocalist, songwriter, and recording artist began her musical journey at the tender age of 18 months old, when her mother discovered that her daughter could sing. This awareness took place one day as her mother was cleaning the family home; and she heard Rochelle mimicking the radio playing Aretha Franklin's song RESPECT in perfect pitch. She's been singing ever since.
Rochelle began sharing her God-given vocal gift while singing in church and in pageantry competitions during her teenage years. She also learned to play the viola, flute, and percussion instruments. In her early 20's she pursued her passion for music as a professional vocalist, performing concerts for dignitaries, celebrities, and during private upscale events. Rochelle continues to amaze audiences with her unique big voice and soulful style.
Ms. Lightfoot's songs and lyrics are inspired by Gods' wisdom through her life experiences and mission. Her style has been influenced by great musical legends such as: Lena Horne, Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland, Sarah Vaughan, Diahann Carroll, Doris Day, Mahalia Jackson, Nancy Wilson, Nat King Cole, Aretha Franklin, Pattie Labelle, Rachelle Farrell and Whitney Houston.
In 2011, Rochelle released her début Christmas Album titled "The Gift", and is now hard at work on a multi-genre original CD Album to be released in the 2012.
