    To Love and Die - Capri Antoinette

    Capri Antoinette enjoys writing in the fiction, mystery, romance, and drama genres. She is currently working on her very first piece, a trilogy series, with Royalty Publishing House. As she pursues her Bachelor's in Psychology, she continues to write and develop her craft.Born and raised in East Palo Alto, CA, Capri was witness to an aggressive environment during most of her childhood.

    HARRELL FAMILY - EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW - THURS, NOV 2014 - 6:00 PM PST

    in Radio

    Through combining his talents in singing, dancing, and acting, Grady Harrell II has had numerous opportunities to work with a variety of well known music artists, land acting roles on television, while at the same time recording and performing as a solo artist. His years of experience in the music business began at the age of 9 when he began to teach himself to sing while looking up to his role model Smokey Robinson. A native of Los Angeles, California, Grady Harrell was born into a musical family where singing was (and still is) a way of life. His mother, Evelyn Harrell, (a singer as well) was in the group Friends of Distinction while his grandmother, Essie King, was a "classical singer/teacher". Grady persisted in sharpening his vocal skills, and at twelve years old he formed a group called Young Gents. He also formed a very popular group called Papa’s Results while he was in high school. This group (which also included his sister Rocq-e) remained active for over a span of more than six years. They soon gained opportunities to work with artist such as Shalamar and The Whispers just to name a few.


    Grady Harrell's stamina, talent, and love for music are strongly evident through his three solo albums: “Mwana” (1985) on Solar/MCA Records, “Come Play with Me” (1989) on RCA Records, and “Romance Me” (1990) on RCA Record. In recent years, he has done tours in Europe with his sister Rocq-E, as leading vocalist in a Motown/Atlantic theater production called "R.E.S.P.E.C.T." He usually makes appearances in Holland several months per year where the fans are


    very welcoming and are more than appreciative of his soulful singing.


    Currently Grady Harrell is in the process of recording a new album for Cliff Hanger Records where Chris Dixon, C.E.O. of the record label, is producing the album.
