From Online Editor, Tami LaTrell:

This weekend, singer/songwriter/pianist Avery Sunshine opened up for 2x GRAMMY nominated singer/songwriter Eric Roberson at the Ground Hall in Houston! After watching her perform, I must say I became an instant fan! Avery makes you feel at home with her warm spirit and “down-home” sanging! I was in awe as I watched her open up about love, hurt, and healing all through song and she even gave praises to God, with her rendition of  Vickie Winans’ “Safe In His Arms”.

She is becoming a Rhythm and Soul sensation with her latest single “All in My Head”.  Check out her bio and music video below and make sure follow Avery @averysunshine on Twitter!

Bursting from an array of musical brilliance, singer / songwriter / pianist AVERY*Sunshine emerges onto the scene with her soon to be released self-titled debut album. Rooted in gospel, she reaches deep into that cornucopia of style and sound and sings a song which articulates the complexities of life with luminous insight.

”AVERY*Sunshine is a native of Chester, PA where she nurtured a natural talent by singing in church and leading and directing choirs. A former member of the renowned Wilmington/Chester Mass Choir, she honed her vocal instrument and sharpened her ability to play piano in her hometown, then headed south to Atlanta, GA where she attended Spelman College. Though far from home, she was never far from her one true love – music. She embodies it. She lives to express through it. But AVERY’s talent couldn’t be contained within the walls and stained glass of the church for very long.

Making her mark on the Atlanta-soul music scene, she and her Spelman sister, Broadway talent Maia Wilson, teamed up to form the singing duo DaisyRew; and later AVERY lent her voice to the soundtrack for Paramount Pictures’ THE FIGHTING TEMPTATIONS. In 2005, she was hired as lead keyboardist for Tyler Perry’s stage play MEET THE BROWNS, and in 2007 she was sought out by vocal great Jennifer Holiday to be choral director for the theatrical production of DREAMGIRLS during the National Black Arts Festival in Atlanta. AVERY*Sunshine recently made history with daily performances at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, CO and four private events during the 2009 Inauguration of President Barack Obama.
