RACHELLE JEANTY - Originally from Haiti, born in New York, raised in Montreal, and now based in Berlin, this accomplished singer and recording artist brings to us an impressive background.
Renown backvocalist for major Francophone artists such as Véronique Sanson, Eddy Mitchell, Johnny Halliday and legendary Robert Charlebois, Rachelle Jeanty also toured the world for two years with Celine Dion, playing on major stages such as the Madison Square Gardens, the Sydney Opera House, the Budokan, Bercy, Wembley Arena, Tempodrom and many more.
After evolving in Paris developing her solo career, Rachelle Jeanty, singer songwriter, went back to Canada to release her debut album ''D'ÂME SOUL'', a collection of her original compositions. This touching and creative piece of work, woven by her life experiences, her lessons learned and her deep spiritual quest, was adored by the public and qualified by the critics as ''an authentic french soul album''.
Rachelle's self produced second recording ''HIGHER GROUND'' is a step further onto this path, where every song was carefully chosen by the artist for its profound, philosophical or spiritual
content. Deeply inspired by these powerful classics, Rachelle rearranged most of the music to her style and emotion, in collaboration with virtuoso guitarist and friend Eric St-Laurent.
As 2012 brings the artist back to her first love, Jazz, Rachelle finds herself at home, for, despite the versatility of her talent, she is truly a Jazz singer.
Her latest project ''Rachelle Ebony Jeanty - The AfroJazz Experience'' transpires with intensity and reveals the maturity of the singer, as well as of her chosen musicians.
This blazing quartet brings a new sound and originality to jazz standards and pop songs through audacious arangements spiced with african, haitian, cuban and brazilian flavors.
In parallel, an amazing alignment of circumstances allowed american songwriter Ben Blythe to contact Rachelle and propose to her his wonderful songs.
Rachelle immediately dived into this new adventure, as their beautiful melodies and their powerful lyrics truly corresponded to her Heart and Spirit.
Only three weeks after their first collaboration, they were invited to debut their songs at
the United Nations in New York. They became the band "Realized Soul".
An album is now in preparation.
In december 2013, the Vienna Boys Choir invited Rachelle to be their guest vocalist and record with her their first Gospel song, appearing on their Christmas CD/DVD ''Songs for Mary''.
Recently in 2015, Rachelle appeared on the Voice of Germany, receiving a 4-chair-turning, standing ovation from the jury and the public. She was also chosen as ''No1 favorite artist'' by the public, at every round.
While giving many sold out soul and spiritual concerts in Europe with her pianist Falk Bonitz, Rachelle has also been successfully conducting her ''SPIRIT of JOY'' singing workshops, a combination of singing and meditation, in Italy, Germany, Switzerland, France, Ukraine, Morocco, England and Austria.
