Kathy Yolanda Rice
has blessed us with her music in our "The Colors of music" shows along with other talented ColoredPeople.net artists. Now we are elated to dedicate a show featuring Kathy's life and projects.
Kathy Yolanda Rice was born and raised in the cosmopolitan city of Huntsville, Alabama, where her passion for music and art was recognized at an early age. Kathy writes her own lyrics and musical compositions. Most of her original tunes are based on real life experiences and emotions, from childhood throughout her adult years.
Kathy began piano lessons at age 6, but knew that she always wanted to focus on singing. She took formal voice training at age 12 and continued throughout college, graduating from Alabama A & M University with a major in Music. Kathy embarked on a recording project with Hit Record Producer, Kelvin Wooten, formerly of Toni! Tony! Tone! Kelvin and Kathy created the magic that made her music so classy and unique. Wooten has produced hit songs for Anthony Hamilton, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu and Kelly Price, to name a few.
Kathy is a gifted vocalist with a style of her own while she captures the hearts of many with her precious voice and original compositions. Kathy's latest 2013 release is a collaborative smooth jazz project with songwriter Gary Swann. The tune, Love is Like a Sunny Day, features Kelley O'Neal on Saxophone. Rice joined several other women musicians on the Bobby Pin Diaries movie soundtrack, which features her up-tempo tune, I've Gotta Find a Love for the February 2013 release.
August 2012 marked the release of a beautiful gospel project...the recording of the Walter Hawkins remake of Jesus Christ is the Way, by Nuove Mystique. Rice is the lyric soprano in the group. The jazzy rendition was released on Audio State 55 and is distributed by the Warner Music Group.
Through her networking with other women musicians, Rice was a featured artist on the Women in Jazz South Florida Volume III compilation CD, released in December 2012. Her classic jazz piece, Cloak and Dagger Affair, heads the lineup of this eclectic mix of jazzy tunes. In 2011, Rice performed her mellow vocals on Marc Lacy's Narcoleptic CD on the track entitled, “Exodus.” In December 2010, Rice collaborated on a Soulful House project entitled, "Feeling the Heat" with world renown Dance/House music record producers Fabio Tosti and Francesco Tarantini on Music Plan Records out of Bari, Italy.
Her recent release is a soulful and anointed Gospel Jazz duet with internationally renowned Television (Miami Vice) and film actor, Broadway performer, multi-instrumentalist, and vocalist Philip Michael Thomas.
Kathy Yolanda Rice and Philip Michael Thomas capture the essence of true love with the magical blending of their voices. Accompanied by Kelvin Wooten’s Cool Jazz/Gospel/R&B track, their unique sound excites the soul and spirit!
This anointed love song will cause you to fall in love over and over again, and renew your vows and keep your commitment to your significant other.
Join your hosts Tania-Maria and Richard Alan as we enjoy a wonderful conversation with our very own Kathy Yolanda Rice!
