SoundDoc Entertainment presents our event Soul Sounds . We took a little break in the month of April to plan 2 events for you in the month of May. First up, Khalil Madyum and our very own Collette.

Khalil Madyum

With a soulful blend of R&B and Pop, NY based Singer/Songwriter delivers music that has a smooth warm sound with the integrity of old school R&B and the freshness of today. Performing on piano & guitar Khalil weaves you into his world with emotional vulnaribility paired with vocal confidence, catch lyrics, and melodies that stay in your head.


Collette is 5′ 10″ of R&B/Soul experimental fearlessness. Her silky voice glides over hard hitting beats…sometimes a gintle wind, at other times a hurricane of South Carolina soul.

She hails from the Atlanta underground soul scene having performed with renowned artists India.Arie, Donnie (Motown), and is a member of Jiva (Giant Step Records), She wears her influences like an elegant gown draped with the improvisational skill and vocal acrobatics of Sarah Vaughn and Al Jareau, and the sultry depth and emotional effectiveness of Phyllis Hyman and Chaka Khan.Her natural talent, professional drive, and amazing charisma have landed her in the presence of greatness many times. Rhonda’s voice has opened many doors for her: she is a background vocalist for Isaac Hayes, and has performed with Luther Vandross, Roy Ayers, Sam Moore of the legendary duo Sam and Dave and Incognito.

Rhondas EP Rhonda Thomas remained number one on the charts of the Internet radio station, Soul 24-7 consecutively for 6 weeks in the fall of 1999.

Her most recent album, Breathe New Life, was rated in the top 3 of Listmanias (AMAZON.COM) 25 Best Nu Soul OnThe Net. Rhonda’s talents were experienced across the globe during her recent 2007 UK “Breathe New Life Tour” to glowing reviews.A quote from Isaac Hayes review of Breathe New Life reads: “WOW, a human voice singing songs of substance. Hats off to production, musicianship, arrangement, vocals and don’t miss the lyrics, its a breath of fresh air.”Music isn’t just an innate talent of Rhonda. A serious musician, she formally studied music at Hampton University, as well as the New York State Summer School of Arts with personal instruction from members of the New York Metropolitan Opera Company.
