Gospel Soul Brunch: Camille Betton Williams
- This event has passed.
Camille Betton Williams, backed by a 3-piece band of keys, bass and drums, and 3 background vocalists, will perform gospel covers and original pieces. With a soothing and convincing voice vibing over tight melodies and beats, attendees won’t be disappointed!
Writing and singing professionally by the age of 14, Camille attributes her early musical framing to her father, who explained the fundamentals of three-part harmony, her late uncle, who manifested such a passion for the excellence of music ministry that it was contagious, and thirdly to her sister who became her first vocal coach in her early teens, drilling in her the importance of blending and singing with others as ‘one voice’.
It was her own interest, however, that pushed her to voraciously absorb music and ‘find all three parts’ whenever listening. In her own words, “the experience of listening to such groups as The Winans, The Commissioned, The Clark Sisters and Witness was so thrilling, to hear what they could do with their voices, those tight harmonies they created and the great production, it was so moving”.
Currently, Camille is working toward the release of new music to follow up her debut cd, The Arrival, in the coming year, and desires to strengthen and encourage the world with her sound.
