Singer, SongWriter ,Entertainer.

Bronx Born and single parent raised Rasheeda’s mother Deloris worked hard as a musician to support

her daughter .She performed at the prestigious NYC Cotton Club and landed night club gigs all over

Las Vegas to provide for her family .Meanwhile back in the Bronx Rasheeda was growing up in a new

musical movement known to the world today as ” HIP HOP”. It just seemed as if Rasheeda’s destiny

was slowly being written as she was always surrounded by her mother’s musical talent, and in her

hometown borough the Bronx, Hip Hop legends such as Kurtis Blow & Kool Herc whom Rasheeda would

later end up working with were being made.

Rasheeda began singing at an early age her mother being her earliest influence and encouragement .As

Rasheeda got older and into her teen years people who watched her sing say that she can command

a stage anywhere she performs .Rasheeda mesmerizes her audience every time .Rasheeda Wallace’s

strong,warm &passionate vocals have been compared to Tina Turner and Mary J.Blige with a hint of

Chaka Kahn .In the early 90’s while Rasheeda was in her later teens it was suggested that she perform

at the Legendary Apollo Theatre. She took up the offer and it resulted in her holding the record of

three time standing ovations. Rasheeda began to be in demand and landed gigs at many other

popular New York City venues such as,BB kings,Crash Mansion,Harlem Grill,The Village Underground,

El Flamingo ,Central Park Summer –stage, And nationally at Club Verve in Atlanta just to name a few.

Rasheeda began to create a positive buzz within the music industry .Her passionate performances are

ripped from her heart and soul .Her powerful vocals have tapped into the collective consciousness of

those who she has entertained ,Resulting in them crowning her the” Queen of Street Soul Rock “.Her

unique musical genre is Hip-Hop ,R&B and soul infusion with rock ….Guaranteeing a block buster musical
