One of the most in demand singers on the Southern California Jazz Scene Cheryl is the epitome of the Classic Jazz Singer. It is simple. Cheryl has a fabulous voice. She sings like someone who has been singing the "Great American Songbook" for a long time, which she has. She sings like someone who loves every note of every song, which she does. With every song it's like she's telling you the whole story of the lyric, which she is.
A wonderful performer, who was one of the "Ikettes" in the Ike and Tina Turner Touring Review, Cheryl is seen frequently in the finest jazz rooms in Southern California. She can be found in front of the 15 piece Pasadena Jazz Orchestra, Cheryl's sound is probably exactly what you were looking for; Classic jazz, elegant, soulful and entertaining. . . have a listen.
People who have seen Cheryl perform live, hire her for their events! It's that simple.
Phrasing with the sensitivity of a horn player, her intonation flawless.

Pop/jazz music is often a short love story put to music, like a mini opera. And my love of short stories carries me into my love for those Mini Operas.
I discovered a musical story teller last night performing at the Catalina Bar & Grill in Hollywood. I did not expect to see the luxurious sumptuous ambiance of this 'Bar & Grill' interior, and I was not expecting the show that was to follow.
Manuel, the man in charge of the bistro, placed me at the table next to a slim beauty who turned out to be the star of the show, Cheryl.
Yes, the story well told is always a treat, but a mini opera well delivered can be a masterpiece in motion. Her slim body rippled with rhythm, with sounds that thrilled and ran a roller coaster of emotions. Cheryl's rendering of, 'First of September' ended with a soft pathos that caused my eyes to get misty.
That Lady Cheryl held the rapt attention of that large room packed with Cheryl Fans for a mesmerizing two hour performance. And the Standing Ovation was well merited when Cheryl sang her last encore 'Night in Tunisia' with her Shibing half of the song with an improvisation that ran the range of a melodious symphony...I'm coming back.
