“Her voice has a wide range. She has the quality, vocal timbre and vibrato of Denise Williams when she goes high. There are a lot of vocal sounds in this young woman. Jazz-wise she can scat too!” says Isaac Hayes.
A resident of Atlanta, GA Rhonda Thomas performs nationally and internationally. Her natural talent, professional drive, and amazing charisma have landed her in the presence of greatness and has opened many doors for her. She’s shared the stage with musical greats such as Luther Vandross, Roberta Flack, Roy Ayers, and Sam Moore of the legendary duo Sam and Dave. Her enchanting voice has stamped her name on the hearts of all that have witnessed her singing live.
Ms. Thomas was a featured soloist and background vocalist for Isaac Hayes for 11 years before his untimely death. She served in that capacity while remaining extremely focused on elevating her solo musical career. Mr. Hayes wholeheartedly supported her desire to spread her wings musically. As a vocalist she shares her unique styling, her sultry voice and dynamic songwriting.
Her boundless energy on stage enchants crowds as her voice exudes power and passion executed with precision. Bringing down the roof with Incognito’s powerhouse lead-singer Maysa Leak, winning awards in Harlem’s Apollo Theater, and performing at the 1996 Olympic Games has crowds falling under her spell. Her 2007 UK “Breathe New Life” Tour was met with glowing reviews. She was also invited to compose a song for Antigua-Barbuda’s Travel and Tourism “365 Beaches”.
She wears her influences like an elegant gown draped with the improvisational skill and vocal acrobatics of Sarah Vaughn and Al Jarreau, and the depth and emotional effectiveness of Phyllis Hyman and Chaka Khan.
