Vocalist ~ Songwriter ~ Actress ~ Vocal Coach

"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

Paulette is available to work as a vocal coach in the studio as well as live performance. Clinics for vocal ensembles in high schools and colleges is her specialty. If interested in private instruction in the Los Angeles area and/or desire lessons through Skype, feel free to contact Paulette at ~

He is featured in highly acclaimed performances for the Grammy-winning movie "Standing In The Shadows Of Motown".

Sharing my thoughts....

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...
We all stand behind you, feel the rumblings of excellence and can't wait to see you on tour with all the great artisty you've chosen to be a part of this current project. For all of the jazz festivals and venues in 'the house' start slating a spot for this wonderful musical collaboration for your upcoming audiences! Don't miss out! Contact Mary Scott, of Scott Global Music Group here in the network for bookings, you'll love her too, great lady!

Musical blessings to you both,

Hey Paulette.
Isn't this music player cool? Enjoying yours! I put the
finishing touches on my player today. I made it to and from Jakarta without having a baby yet. (lol), but my feet still look like two sub rolls after 50 hours RT of flying, not to mention the jet lag of being 15 hours ahead. It was an impressive festival however... largest in the world... 22 stages. Over 100,000 tickets sold.

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
