soul. That is why in 2007 she began work on her debut CD which features
a delicate blend of R&B dance grooves, love songs, and inspirational
messages. "I want my music to move my listeners not just on
the dance floor....but to encourage, motivate and heal, " states
Rachel. "Singing is a natural high for me. It takes me to another
realm. Those are the feelings I want my audience to experience too.
I want to lead them on a personal journey of rediscovery. I really
want to inspire each listener,” says Rachel, who prefers to

as ‘medication for the mind.
On her critically

blends the smoothness of Anita Baker, the sensitivity and consciousness
of Oprah, and the soul of Aretha Franklin, as she explores the deepest
emotions within our heart and soul.
