Selina Albright is a jazz-inspired vocalist with versatility that comes from years of listening to many genres and languages of music. Her soulfulness and angelic tone add character and emotion to any ballad, yet her powerful wailing commands attention.
Selina began singing at age two, but her professional music career began at age 14 when she performed on an educational project released in Japan by Sony. She was also the featured background vocalist on three songs from Gerald Albright’s Live To Love CD in 1997, and on two songs from his Sax For Stax CD in 2008. In 2007, Selina performed the National Anthem at the Pepsi Center for a Denver Nuggets Pro Basketball Game. She also performed on three different occasions for the Democratic National Convention, held in Denver, Colorado in 2008. Currently, she is a lead vocalist of The Jakarta Band, based out of Denver, Colorado.
The artist also appeared on Gerald Albright’s newest CD, entitled “Pushing The Envelope,” released June 2010.
Albright has learned her charismatic stage presence and vocal technique from being exposed to legendary artists, such as Whitney Houston, Take Six, Anita Baker, Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington, Lalah Hathaway, Tina Turner, Bebe and Cece Winans, and Earth Wind and Fire. She has even shared the stage with many other greats, such as Gerald Albright, Chaka Khan, Will Downing, Jonathan Butler, Kirk Whalum, Jeff Lorber, Rick Braun, Peter White, Eric Roberson, Hugh Masakela, David Benoit, Richard Elliott, and The Temptations.
