I finally caught up with Nina!! She sang tonight at Ashley’s Oasis, owned by Ashley Ravenheart (littlebit31okla). Also at the performance tonight were mananger Baileypaige (bailey.blaukempt), general manager Jamie Hall (jamie0820), and staff member Amber (misskind).
From the moment she opens her mouth to sing it is evident that this young redhead possesses a trained voice. In fact, she hold degrees in vocal performance and choral music education. She has performed in piano bars, theatre productions, and is active in the SL live music scene.
Her bio says she draws inspiration from greats like Ella Fitzgerald, Diane Shurr, and Sarah Vaughan. But truthfully, she has her own developed style and a strong soprano with a consistent and well trained vibrato. An audience member requested something jazzy and she sang two jazz tunes with a wonderful jazz interpretation.
I had to ask myself, where has this talent been hiding? I requested any song from PostModern Jukebox, who she not only knew well enough to explain to the audience, but sang the newest song from them flawlessly with all the energy one hears in the PMJ video files. Oh and did I mention she is a fellow redhead?
