She writes everything from country to R&B and commercial jingles. She is dedicated to her craft and her career, as her longevity and persistence shows. Youlanda gives most of the credit for her songwriting to her mother, who was also a singer & songwriter. Because of her, she grew up listening to a variety of music, everything from Jim Croce, Dolly Parton, Chaka Khan to Natalie Cole and all genres in between. Unfortunately she lost her several years ago to a domestic violence tragedy. It affected her in a very negative way for many years but she didn’t let it consume her. She never stopped writing or believing that one day she would be able to do what she loves for a living, which is songwriting and singing. My songs she says, “are personal each song has a journey, each song has a life and tells a little bit about mine.” To learn more visit www.Youlanda.org.
