"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 them to be moved through my music, to feel transported." That's what RACHEL's voice will do to you: warmly invite you in, take you on a new journey and inspire you to embrace your passion.

With perfect intonation, fresh interpretation and pure musicality as her trademarks, RACHEL carves a new path on her debut CD, "Love, Life & Relationships," which showcases her impeccable voice.
