To say that Sherree’s sound is distinctive is an understatement. The Dove Award recipient is a vocal chameleon in whose satiny delivery can be heard through a resume that spans multiple genres, including R&B, rock, jazz, country, and gospel. Her versatility comes from working closely with a veritable Grammy Award winning singers and songwriters—Barbara Streisand to Carlos Santana and from Faith Hill to CeCe Winans and Michael W. Smith just to name a few.
Born in Chicago, Sherree Patrice (formerly Sherree Ford-Payne) grew up on the South Side in historic Antioch Baptist Church, under the leadership of pastor and civil rights leader Rev. W.N. Daniel. As a teenager, she joined the acclaimed Walt Whitman and the Soul Children of Chicago. Her first recorded solo was the traditional gospel-flavored “The Race,” featured on the choir’s 1992 top-selling album, We Are One.
?Armed with God-given talent, training, and a taste of the music business, Sherree moved to California at age eighteen, eager to pursue music full-time. She grasped the industry with both hands, writing songs for Nancy Wilson, recording demos for top producers and songwriters such as Dianne Warren, David Foster, Carole Bayer-Sager and Babyface and touring with Jennifer Lopez and Mariah Carey. She sang background vocals for artists such as Whitney Houston, Michael Buble’, Barbara Streisand, Usher, and Boyz II Men.
