Ellacey Selah was born to Willie and Patty Hunter October 15, 1970. She attended Parks Refuge C.O.G.I.C. with her mother and father. When she was old enough, she joined the “Sunshine Band” which led to her development and love of the arts. Her father was also a great singer and constantly sang around the house, dropping seeds into the aspiring vocalist and thespian. After her parents split up, her mother married Johnny Blane and he moved them to Dallas, TX where she began to spread her wings and grow in the music field. Inspired by her mother, Ellacey took an interest in playing the piano. Her mother showed her the basics and she took it from there, learning everything by ear. She also showed an interest in playing the drums by watching her sister, Sheila Hunter; play in the middle school band. Music was always around her and in her mind. She developed great creativity skills by playing, singing and acting at local churches in the DFW Metroplex. Even though most of the things she learned came from her gospel roots, Ellacey took the time to take courses that helped to further her creativity. Since only being known locally to sing gospel, Ellacey chose to move out of the box to see what more her talent could offer. Her skills currently include vocal coaching, singing Jazz, gospel, musical theatre, R&B blues and rap.

Contemporary jazz vocalist, Victor Fields, joins forces with smooth jazz guitarist, Chris Camozzi, for a head-bobbing and soulful rendition of a Lou Rawls classic! The Lou Rawls Project is a sultry, bluesy and easy swinging set featuring lush, sophisticated re-imaginings of ten Rawls classics. Victor's rich gauzy tenor and his ability to move seamlessly between the blues, jazz, R&B and Pop prompted the legendary Lou Rawls to call him “the man with the golden voice” and the Los Angeles Times to describe him as "a stylistically accomplished singer who deserves much more attention."
