Babi Doll

Known for her five octave singing voice (most-often compared to Minnie Riperton), and ability to sing in six languages: English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian and Latin, BabiDoll encompasses every genre of music with classic finesse. Although her first love is Jazz, she writes and performs phenomenal pop, opera, dance, Neo-soul, Latin and R & B lyrics just as easily as she breathes. Inspired by such artists as Minnie Riperton, Phyllis Hyman, Barbara Streisand, Sergio Mendes, Grace Bumbry, Mel Torme, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and Celia Cruz, one can hear why her singing and writing styles are so diverse.

BabiDoll has had the privilege of collaborating with Grammy-Award winning musicians & other major award nominees including The Chicago Sinfonietta, Howard Levy, Tom Tom Washington, Howard Hewett, Preston Glass and Larry Sturm. She is also a member of the popular cover band Chicago Catz and regularly performs at events hosted by the Hyde Park Jazz Society. In her own right, BabiDoll was the first winner of the Bombay Sapphire / Soul 106.3 Soul Searching competition in 2007. She was also commissioned to sing the national anthem at three of the And1 Mixtape Tour basketball games.

In addition to singing and songwriting, BabiDoll has studied classical piano and voice at Chicago's prestigious Sherwood Conservatory of Music and Vandercook College of Music. She has also studied drama at the famous Second City and ETA Theatre. Additionally, she has studied tap, ballet, modern, African and hip-hop dance methods and has won national awards for flag and sabre twirling.
