Gloria Allende is a musician, singer, songwriter and band leader. She was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico and raised in Los Angeles, California. Gloria began singing professionally as a background vocalist for Pasha records (parent company of Sony Music Entertainment) in Hollywood, CA at the age of 17. She graduated from the famous Hollywood High School of Performing Arts. Gloria’s extensive training in modern, jazz and salsa dancing explains her movement and contagious energy on stage. Inviting her audience to be a part of every show is not uncommon. If the space is big enough, you just might get a free salsa lesson. Despite pursuing a secular career in real estate and legal studies, performing and creating music with the endeavor to lift people’s spirit remains her strength and passion.
Barbara Sheree, a Philadelphia-born soul singer, began singing at the early age of 7. She was born to International recording artists Bobby (Guitar) Bennett and Brenda Kellam. Starting very early, Barbara began soloing at church and then in school and community choirs. Barbara loved music and harmony, playing the trombone and the piano. During those early years, she was featured several times in local newspapers for performing at events. After completing high school, she attended Temple University and immersed herself in the Philadelphia music scene. She attended open mic venues and showcases until meeting with the producers of her first EP, “Sensual Soul,” produced by HitSquad productions.
Formed in 2010 in Newark, New Jersey, it was created to help raise money for a charter
school in Newark. Ascension Music Co., led by Darchele Todd (a kindergarten teacher),
organized the musicians, including the school principal De Lacy Davis, a percussionist.
For two years, on the last Friday of every month, parents of this charter school would
come out to attend a Night of Live Jazz, Wine & Cheese. After a night with Ascension
Music Co., everyone would agree you did not leave the same way you came in hence
taking on the motto, “Live Entertainment Guaranteed to Take You Higher.”
Ascension Music Co. morphed into a full-entertainment group that increased the number
of musicians who would come to form its musical. The group includes a sub-group called
THE UNIT which features Darchele Todd on vocals accompanied by a group of talented
musicians who individually lead their own bands.
