Rachelle Ferrell: Singing Her Way To A Higher Plane
To say that the voice of singer Rachelle Ferrel is supple would be to understate its magnificence. Ms. Ferrel’s voice has a 6-octave range which conveys deep and surprising levels of emotion.
As you can imagine, KPLU was very proud to host her and her pianist, Mo Pleasure, in an intimate studio session.
She performed one jazz standard, (My Funny Valentine in a way you’ve never heard before) and two of her own compositions (Love is All Around and I Can Explain). Between songs Ms. Ferrell spoke to host, Abe Beeson, about the spirituality which guides her music.
