Paulette McWilliams has not received any gifts yet
"As a vocalist, I've worked with some of the best known artists, performers and producers in the business, such as Quincy Jones, Luther Vandross, Michael Jackson, Bette Midler, Billy Idol, David Bowie, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Lopez. I recorded with Noel Pointer, Tom Scott, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock and had the privledge to sing a duet on stage with Sarah Vaughan. I've been performing all of my life which afforded me extensive world travel. My education has been actual 'work' experience. I found that what was sometimes lacking in young up and coming artists was the ability to capture and inspire an audience and holding their attention for the duration of a performance. This was my inspiration in creating my Vocal Performance Series for singers. It's not for beginners, some technique is required but its not about technique, its for singers that want to 'up their ability' to learn about every facet of performance from before the rehearsal to the final bow. It makes a difference that the audience can see and feel." ~ Paulette McWilliams

These two artists have had an impact on my musical journey in different ways. I once met Paulette while I was working at Bell Sound Studios in Hollywood, California years ago. She came in to sing some jingles that Don Piestrup was producing. I remember loving what she did so much I asked for a copy of it so I could sing with it in my car in the hopes that I could sing along with her and capture just a mere smidgen of her essence and delivery. She just blows me away, the title of her current CD coming to press is sincerely Paulette, for she is one that can tell a great story musically. She doesn't know it but she was a vocal coach to me early on in my dreams for expression. Thank you Paulette for all you've given us musically and we so much look forward to hearing your upcoming CD in its entirety for I know its going to be one that you will want to keep playing over and over again. As for Tom Scott, my first job in Los Angeles was at the Musician's Union Local 47 working for his father Nathan Scott in the Motion Picture Department. What a gracious man he is and was to me, he taught me so much, especially the respect of working with creative and talented people. Tom is a chip off the ole' block, a gracious, soulfully expressive musician that we all know and love. His credits could wrap around your house a few times and he deserves so much recognition for his contributions to the music industry in a myriad of fashions. This collective collaboration that he has undertaken with "Telling Stories" is going to be a classic project. Thank you Tom for who you are, what you've shared throughout the years, I'm sure many of us here in the network own many of your compositions. We so much appreciate you giving us a 'sneak peek' of your upcoming project with Paulette and friends...
