Judith’s interest in the arts was sparked as a young girl while singing in her home. She later went on to graduate from the Grammy award winning, Houston’s High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, as a vocal/dance major.

She received a music scholarship to Clark Atlanta University, graduating with a BA in Theatre Arts under the guidance of the late, great Carol Mitchell Leon, veteran Atlanta stage actress, well respected theatre professor and tv/ film actress (Diary of A Mad Black Woman, Idlewild, Fried GreenTomatoes and House of Payne).

Under Carol Mitchell Leon’s guidance Judith booked her first professional stage play at Actor’s Express (Company), her first musical tour with the The Alliance Theatre and Project M.A.G.I.C (Let’s Talk About Aids) as well as her first voice over for Macy’s.

While in Atlanta, she has also had the privilege of working with a host of musicians which has allowed her to hoan her craft throughout the USA, Europe and Africa first hand as a lead and background vocalist/songwriter.

As result, she has performed at legendary venues such as The Tabernacle, The Georgia World Congress Center, Cafe 290, Sambuca’s, Millenium Hall (10,000+) and The Mega Fest and Philips Arena (with an audience of 17,000 and more while singing the national anthem at both the Atlanta Thrashers and Atlanta Braves game). Judith opened for R. Kelly in concert for New Year’s Eve, January 31, 2010 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Judith Says…..

I realized that it was a great way to get something out there with my voice on it so people could hear me over and over again for free. I still don’t call it a mixtape. I prefer the term, Promotional Project.”  She chuckles, “This is sort of like a gift to my fans before I actually start charging all of y’all.”
