"Hi Nichelle, I changed a little bit your Soweto lyrics at the end of the song and focus only on the old lady in the home of the age:
Some adults learning how to run business
And I´m sure, that it will be a success
We asked a old lady what has…"
sorry for Sound Of Silence, but we were all at CeBIT Fair and I came back yesterday evening from Hanover and went directly in our studio were Werner works already on your Soweto June 1994. And what can I say: We all think it will be a great song on the CD and even much more better as in Hanover. We hope we find an opportunity to invite you some day to perform your song with the SAWUBONA band. It sounds for me little bit like a Stevie Wonder song - but much more modern - made for 2010.
Nichelle - is a Sultry, Powerful, Emotional, Jazzy Songstress tossed into a blend of R&B,Gospel, Hip-Hop and Soul. . .what a tasteful stew of talent!!!
Nichelle Colvin, born and raised in Gary, Indiana, sings with great emotion and sincerity. Her style in one word would be
a "Storyteller". Her songs take you on an adventure into many worlds ranging from Love, Hate, Hurt, Pain, Happiness,
Laughter and Soulful Anguish. This sultry singer started her career in church at the Rosa Jackson Youth Choir at Trinity
Missionary Baptist Church. She wrote her first 3 song, which became Billboard award winning songs as a sophomore in
College. "Hold On", "Yahweh" and "What turns you on", as a teenager, not bad for your first time out huh?
Her first album project "Circular Soul" was a Midwest compilation album of artist in which she wrote a song
"Picture That" which would later become on the songs added to her first album Project "Relations 1". Not only did
this album sell out, but it also got her, her first licensing deal in the UK with a label called "Street Culture Records". This
would not be Nichelle's only deal in the UK, which is where her biggest fan base seems to be. Her Sophomore Project,
"Millenaire", which is still available on i-tunes as well as the internet and some stores got her another deal with a label
called, "Cafedesoul Records". Cafedesoul decided to take a few songs from her first and second album and call it
"Language of Love" which is also available on the web. This project was featured in Echoes Magazine. "Berkana",
Nichelle's third project got Nichelle her first deal in the US with a label called "Taste Records". This brings us up to the
present. . .this singer/songwriter is working on her 4th Album called "Soulfully Yours, Nichelle". She is working
with a very talented producer by the name of Aaron B., who has written numerous hits and this year is sure to go to the
next level with Nichelle's great talent. They have already claimed an award in the 2008 UK Songwriting Contest for the song "Justin Case" which is one of the cuts off Nichelle's latest Project.
Nichelle has sung on numerous projects. One in particular, "A Call to Courage," received national recognition when Darron McKinney (soprano saxophone) and Nichelle Colvin performed the composition at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Candlelight Vigil held in Washington, DC May of 2001. There, the two artists mesmerized 18,000 law enforcement officers and the families and friends of America's fallen law officers. Former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft and Sen. Trent Lott were among the attending dignitaries who were visibly moved by McKinney's incredible musical salute and Nichelle's sultry vocals. (Log-on to http://www.shieldrecords.com to see the performance). Following this event, the tragedy of September 11, 2001 hit, the song and its meaning have gained additional praise. Since then Nichelle has performed on Detroit Fox News and sang the song in remembrance of the lost lives.
Influences - Nichelle has a very ecliptic group of singer/songwriters that have influenced her style and if you listen closely to her songs, you can almost hear these influences spring for her pores.
Anita Baker, Phyllis Hyman, The Emotions, Jean Carne, Angela Windbush, Luther, The Jones Girls, The Jacksons, Barbra Streisand, Julie Andrews, The Winans, Sting, Eryka Badu, Aretha Franklin and Gladys Knight.
