Khadijah “Renee” is a Jazz Songstress in the vein of the Great Ladies of Jazz. Her resonant tones remind you of the ladies who paved their way through the male dominated syncopated instrumental ingenious sounds of Be-Bop & Classical Jazz from as early as the 1950’s. If you close your eyes while listening to her, you may hear reminiscent echoes of Sarah, Ella, Billie, Nancy, Dinah and Gloria.
Khadijah is a contralto whose range is deep and sweet at the same time. She has been performing Jazz since the late 80’s in and around the Tri-State area. Khadijah is always accompanied by the best musicians the area has to offer. She been recorded live at the East Coast Jazz Festival now called the Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festival in Maryland and heard on WRTI 90.1 Jazz Radio.
Born and raised in Chester City, Pa., Khadijah Renee currently lives and works in Philadelphia, where the jazz audiences there accepted and adopted her as their own. A former member of the Delaware Council of Jazz Advocates, she recently graced the stage of their tribute to Clifford Brown at the Delaware School of Music with a rendition of Sassy’s “September Song”. Khadijah is still paying tribute to the tremendous legacy left by the Divas of Jazz with her smooth, deep tones and heartfelt bravado.
Renee is also an actress graduating from Philadelphia’s Freedom Theater; she completed acting courses at Philadelphia’s Bushfire Theater and film courses with Mike Lemon Casting Agency, Philadelphia. In 2014, she travelled to Hollywood, CA to perform at the historic Saban Theater for the African Oscars (NAFCA) event, and is slated to return to perform for the 2015 African Oscars.
In September of this year, she will join the cast of the 3Divas3, an original musical jazz play written and composed by James Solomon Alfie Pollitt and Karen Smith that made its debut in New York this summer.
Khadijah holds a bachelor’s degree in Social Work from Temple University, and a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Pennsylvania.
She loves helping people and she hopes to make your “ears tear” with her historic renditions of popular jazz/blues/gospel standards…enjoy!!!
