Mycah Chevalier has been singing and dancing since she was a tiny girl. Growing up in the Washington, DC, area, Mycah was fortunate to be in an area where her talent could be nurtu...red. She studied with Ricky Payton, Sr., who is the founder and director of BET's Urban Nation Hip Hop Choir and HBO's City at Peace. She also was privileged to study under the Washington Opera's mezzo sorprano, Linda Allison.

She has shared the stage with The Whispers, Patti LaBelle, Luther Vandross, Arturo Sandoval and many more.

Mycah is the head of The Roux Project, a band that combines the best of Jazz, Soul and Blues - flavored with the buttered sweetness of Mycah's Creole roots. Her acclaimed CD, "Roux's Fantasy", has been played in both the U.S. and overseas.

Kerensa Gray's CD, "Let Me Be Me" features the talents of Baltimore-based and now internationally known, contemporary Jazz guitarist Drew Davidsen. Kerensa and Drew have been collaborators on more than one project, and Drew will produce Kerensa's new CD, with an approximate release date that she will reveal on our show come Monday!

We'll also discuss the reasoning behind - and plans for The Estrogen Sessions. A project that we all perceive will have positive repercussions in the months and even years to come.
