SANDYREDD, a powerhouse singer, songwriter, actress and entrepreneur is a Chicago native performer taking the industry by storm. She recently left the entire world in shock and awe after wowing the celebrity judge panel on the newest Season 15 of NBC's hit show "The Voice". Adam Levine, Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson and Blake Shelton were all left fighting for a chance to coach this seasoned artist. However, SandyRedd's story begins long before her journey to "The Voice".
As she commands the stage with her captivating "Rock Soul" energy, her impeccable delivery, her soulful voice and her chameleon style passion-filled performances that soften even the hardest of hearts, its no wonder why she was recently nominated for R&B Entertainer of the Year in 2018 and Best Female Vocalist in 2019 for the Chicago Music Awards. Her talents have taken her all over the world, from her hometown of Chicago to Atlanta, New York, L.A, France and beyond. Opening for rap icons such as 50 Cent, MC Lyte, Souljah Boy and Twista, as well as R&B Legends like Miguel, Monica, Syleena Johnson, Chaka Khan, Kem, Angie Stone, Musiq Soulchild and more, has allowed her to win over audiences of many genres with ease. So, there is no secret as to why she was dubbed the "Leading Lady of Success" at the Ford Motor Company "Born to Roll" brunch by Chicago's biggest radio station 107.5 WGCI & IHeart Radio, where she received an honorary award for her hard work and dedication in the field of music. Her passion for music was first introduced by her late Mother, Evangelist Margaret Owens Bussie. She has worked tirelessly, not only to see that her mother’s selfless dedication and hard work is showcased through her, but that her mothers legacy is never forgotten.
SandyRedd is not only leaving her mark vocally but has an undeniable lyrical talent to match as well. She has developed an extensive catalog with several notable Grammy Award Winning Producers, and has also landed placements of her own on Syleena Johnson’s "Chapter V UnderRated" album, as well as Avants "The VIII" album. But it doesn't just stop there! She continues to solidify her well-deserved label as a "Triple Threat", landing countless notable roles as the leading lady in the African American Musical Theater community. Her acting career quickly progressed into her television debut in the Movie “The Ideal Husband” starring Darrin Henson (Stomp the Yard), Ginuwine, Jackee Harry (Everybody Hates Chris), Clifton Powell (Friday) and Erica Hubbard (Akeelah and the Bee).
Additionally, her acting talents have transitioned her into broadway style tours, landing the lead role as Dorothy in the classic tale of “The Wiz”, which debuted at the world-renowned Arie Crown Theater Chicago, as well as the lead role of Tina Turner in the Ike & Tina review. Her extensive resume and acting abilities in musical theater have also landed her a supporting role in the iconic Broadway musical "Jesus Christ Superstar" at the world-renowned Lyric Opera House Chicago in 2018. And with SandyRedd still on the ticket, this ground breaking production is set to begin its year long National Tour in Fall 2019. So she is certainly creating an undeniable presence on several industry platforms.
Recently, SandyRedd wowed her city by being crowned winner of the WGCI "Kick Start Your Dreams...Next To Blow Out of Chicago" contest sponsored by Mountain Dew & Rap Legend Twista. She has also made appearances on the following: Fox News, WCIU You & Me, Windy City Live, WGN News, GMC TV, BET, TVOne, Power 92.3 radio, Soul 106.3 radio, WVON 1690 radio, ATL Love 860 radio, Bishop TD Jakes Mind Body & Soul, R&B Divas & Fox TV's hit show "Empire". Her upcoming projects include her "Redd Fever Promo Tour" set to continue through 2019 into the New Year. But the story goes on!
Her passion for the arts was taken to another level in 2011 with the start of her non-for-profit performing arts youth organization called "Mama's Birds". The program, in honor of her late mother’s memory, is nearing the start of its successful 9th year run, is extended to the youth of her city, provides a safe haven of growth and creativity and is set to continue in Summer 2019. SandyRedd is certainly what the industry needs today, and continues to prove herself a force to be reckoned with. And with so much left to give and nowhere to go but up, she looks forward to changing the world through music, one stage at a time!
"A LEGACY OF LOVE"
My prayer is that I stay humble and grounded throughout my experiences. I truly believe that God has a plan for me. I can only hope that I continue to make him and my mother proud!!!”
