After a very successful engagement in a featured role in GEORGE GERSHWIN'S "Porgy and Bess" at the New York City Center, She auditioned for the great Earl "Fatha" Hines Orchestra. Much of her Jazz influence developed during her either years of travels with the Hines Orchestra throughout the world to places like Canada, Brazil, Cuba, Russia, Yogoslavia, Spain, Romania, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Belgium, Italy, England, Denmark, Sweden, France, Germany, Australia, Japan, Thailand, Singapore, and of course all over the United States as well as many other countries. She stepped out as a solo performer whenever the band was on hiatus. She was guest soloist with The Boston Pops Symphony Orchestra under the baton of the late Arthur Fiedler and guest solist with The Battle Creek Michigan Symphony Orchestra as well as the 200 voice choir at the Chicago Church of Deliverance under the direction of Reverend Ralph Goodpastor.
