Renee's musical roots stem from Gospel. As the daughter of a minister she was steeped in everything from Southern Gospel to Black Gospel. She was surrounded by a musical family as everyone in her family plays an instrument or sings. As a child Renee was extremely shy and did not enjoy the spotlight at all but her Mother constantly encouraged her to share her talents. This was only the beginning. In the 1980's Renee traveled full time with a Christian Rock Band "CrossRoads" using her vocal abilities to share lead vocals and creative harmonies with two other top notch classically trained vocalists as well as her keyboard skills and guitar stylings. Her musical upbringing and natural talent is evident in all she does. Not only does she have raw talent and a soulful style she possesses the skill of a seasoned professional. Renee is an innate entertainer and performer who knows how to engage an audience.
A friend and colleague in the business once published a statement that said,
" She has the voice of an angel raised on Janis!"
