Brenda Alford is a highly acclaimed singer and songwriter. A graduate of the University of Miami Frost School of Music, she has the distinction of being one of a very few vocalists ever to record with renown jazz legend Horace Silver on the esteemed Blue Note Record Label. Brenda has demonstrated her versatility by performing in a wide range of settings. She has performed in schools, on college campuses, in intimate cafes and jazz lounges, church sanctuaries and large concert halls, such as the Delaware Grand Opera House and Baltimore’s Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. She brought the house down in concert with her dear friends and colleagues (Allen Paul-piano, Dr. Jamie Ousley-bass, Lenny Steinberg-drums, Walter Rodrigues-guitar) at the South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center as part of a jazz concert featuring the sensational vocalist, Kevin Mahogany and his trio, renown veteran saxophonist/composer Bobby Watson and his trio (with Grammy winner Curtis Lundy on bass), and the Richmond Middle School Jazz Band. In a previous VIP performance there, Brenda performed a concert to precede a concert by the Grammy Award-winning Vocal group, Take 6, during which she debuted her single recording, “Every Child” to standing ovations and overwhelmingly positive feedback. Her varied musical performance configurations have ranged from a cappella to a sixty-piece orchestra. Her repertoire includes, jazz, gospel, pop, R&B, and/or blues. She has also appeared in two movies, Jon Waters’ original “Hairspray” and Barry Levinson’s “Avalon”.
