Hello, lovely people! ;-) Chantae Cann here... I'm an independent singer/songwriter based out of Atlanta, GA, and as far as I can remember, music has ALWAYS been my LOVE. I decided to PURSUE it with PASSION and have since been blessed with the AMAZING opportunity to sing as a professional backing vocalist for Grammy Award winning artist, India.Arie. This has been a DREAM come true! I've encountered a plethora of equally as breathtaking, opportunities to collaborate with some of the most INSPIRING artists & musicians in the music industry. In 2008, I began branching out into my solo artistry and I am finally ready to release an OFFICIAL debut project! ;-)
As an independent artist, in can be disheartening when one of the major factors prohibiting you from having a finished quality project is...yup...you guessed it... SWEET MULA! So I'm reaching out to my beloved supporters, encouragers & appreciators to let you all know that, FIRST and foremost, I appreciate the appreciation! SECONDLY, I have been working on something very special & from the heart for you guys, and NOW, more than ever, I need your support. I humbly extend the invitation to each of you all, that can and will, to consider becoming a part of this meaningful process.
"I sing because I LOVE to. I sing because God has entrusted me with a gift purposed to CHANGE the WORLD one melody at time. I sing to HELP. I sing to HEAL. I sing to COMFORT. I sing to LIBERATE. I sing to APPRECIATE. I sing to MOTIVATE. I sing to RELEASE. I sing to EXPRESS. I sing because, honestly, It's what I was MADE to do!" ;-)
