Alicia Olatuja astounds audiences with her exquisite vocals, artistic versatility and captivating demeanor. She first came into the spotlight in 2013, whilst performing at President Barack Obama’s Second Inauguration. Shortly thereafter, she assembled her own jazz-based ensemble and recorded her first solo album.
Originally from St. Louis, Missouri, Alicia grew up immersed in a wide range of musical styles, including gospel, soul, jazz and classical. These influences have informed her artistic journey and she later graduated with a master’s degree in Classical Voice/Opera from the Manhattan School of Music. After appearing in operatic and musical theater productions she started performing more regularly in gospel and jazz concerts and worked with such esteemed artists as Chaka Khan, BeBe Winans, and Christian McBride.
Her most recent work, Intuition: From the Minds of Women, focuses on the rich contributions of female composers, while offering a musical perspective unique to Olatuja. It features the songs of Brenda Russell, Sade, Tracy Chapman, Kate Bush, Angela Bofill and Linda Creed.
