Keyboardist and producer George Duke
has a thing for female vocalists. He has worked with great singers like Anita Baker,Dianne Reeves, Dionne Warwick and Natalie Cole. But with singer Rachelle Ferrell
, he has a very special bond. She started as a backing vocalist in his band. The keyboards player was the first to recognize the great talent of the singer from Philadelphia. Ferrell can play the piano and violin fantastically and is also a multi-talented composer who is able to blend jazz, gospel, urban and classical music. Duke produced her album Individuality
in 2000. Ferrell fans will know she can reach great heights in a live setting. Even more so when she has her mentor by her side.
