For Immediate Release

WASHINGTON, D.C., August 21, 2014 — Geneva Renée, the inaugural winner for NBC4 TV’s singing competition, “Be a Voice V.I.P.’, makes her debut performance at Blues Alley in Washington, D.C., on August 27, 2014 at 8PM EST and 10PM EST.

“Had Beautiful Wonder been around in 1976 or 1977, the tune would have easily worked for Deniece Williams or the late Minnie Riperton. Renée, in fact, has a certain sweetness in her voice that recalls Williams and Riperton in the 1970s, and like Williams, she knows how to hit the high notes. It’s important to stress, however, that Beautiful Wonder goes for a combination of sweetness and grit, which is another thing that Renée has in common with Williams and Riperton.” – Alex Henderson

Geneva Renée, the highly sought after mezzo-soprano, whose range spans three octaves, was handpicked to fill in at the last minute for Mariah Carey to sing “Hero” during a dress rehearsal for the Obama Neighborhood Inaugural Ball. With her sound, heavily influenced by classical, jazz, soul, gospel and pop, Geneva has been a featured soloist at internationally broadcasted events honoring Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton. As an artist, she has shared the stage with the stars including Diana Ross, Maysa Leak, and Vanessa Williams; and has performed across the country in legendary venues such as Blues Alley, the Kennedy Center, the Cotton Club, and the Howard Theatre. Geneva Renée is the inaugural winner for NBC4 TV’s singing competition, “Be a Voice V.I.P.,” granting a VIP audition for NBCUniversal’s The VOICE.

As a gifted singer/songwriter, Geneva Renée taught and performed her original soul-stirring song, She Presses On, to a 500 voice choir as the official theme song for the National Centennial Founders Day DVD of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. She Presses On was then considered for nomination as Song of the Year in the 56th Grammy Awards; and is on her 2012 debut full-length album Beautiful Wonder, produced by Dinky Bingham (Patti LaBelle, New Edition, Kylie Minogue). Most recently, Geneva released her official music video online entitled, In the Morning.

Geneva states, “While I’ve been a supporting vocalist at Blues Alley a few times before, I have dreamed of performing as a solo artist on this legendary stage for more than a decade! Now, my birthday wish will finally come true!!! Since the release of my debut album, Beautiful Wonder, I've had a full concert every August - but this will be a night to remember!!! Join me and my amazing band of friends as we perform an intimate variety of new music that will reveal more of my personality that only my close friends know about. It's my birthday, so why not live a little? Make a wish... it just may come true!”

Geneva is a featured soloist with Stellar Award-nominated ensemble, Patrick Lundy and the Ministers of Music on their album “Determined”.

Geneva has performed for productions including the Kennedy Center Honors, Christmas In Washington, Obama Neighborhood Inaugural Ball, National Cherry Blossom Festival, National Association of Broadcasters (NAB), US Department of Health and Human Services, the Safeway National Barbeque Battle, Grand Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta, Inc., National Armed Forces Retirement Home, Gospel Superfest, Gospel Music Workshop of America, Bobby Jones Gospel... and Geneva has shared the stage with Beyoncé, Shakira, Diana Ross, Mariah Carey, Jessye Norman, Kirk Whalum, Vanessa Williams, Maysa Leak (formerly of Incognito), Jean Carne, Darren Crisp (from GLEE), Janelle Monet, Sheryl Crow, Hugh Jackman, Sy Smith, Psy, Megan Hilty, Amber Riley (from GLEE), Donnie McClurkin, Patrick Lundy & the Ministers of Music, Tremaine Hawkins, Y'Anna Crawley, Dorothy Norwood, Dorinda Clark-Cole, Vashawn Mitchell,
Yolanda Adams, Jonathan Nelson, and many more.
