Joi Rhone Presents brings Queensgiving and the Queens (Nate’ the Soulsanger, RyanNicole and Sangin Sara) back to Yoshi’s on Thanksgiving Eve, November 23 for the 2nd Portion (the 2nd helping) of the SOLD OUT show from Thanksgiving Eve 2019!
Nate’ the Soulsanger
Born and raised in Oakland, CA, Nate' (nah-TAY) Soulsanger is the Bay Area's premier urban entertainer, maintaining a prolific career as a recording artist, performer, songwriter and actress. Nate' hails from a musical family, making her first entry into the business as co-founder of a pre- teen gospel duo, Young Revelations.
Nate' first hit the airwaves with her own single, "Heart Heals"; a smooth, mid-tempo slice of R&B which was prominently featured on the Bay Area's major urban radio station, KMEL, as well as in local clubs. She went on to share stages with an impressive range of artists like Kelly Price, Patti Labelle, Lenny Williams, Will Downing, Yolanda Adams, Shalamar, Carlos Santana, Dionne Warwick, Neal Schon (Journey), MC Hammer, Narada Michael Walden, Martha Reeves, REO Speedwagon, Peter Frampton, and more.
When the word music comes to the mind of thoughtful “4A”: Actress, Athlete, Artist, Activist RyanNicole, it conjures memories of Panasonic headphones too big to fit her ears and vinyl records strewn across the living room floor of her childhood home in Oakland, CA. Raised on a healthy diet of diverse music ranging from Parliament to Flora Purim, Pat Metheny to Queen Latifah, RyanNicole’s approach to music is reverent to say the least.
Coming of age in a time when hip-hop reigned supreme, the genre further refined her appreciation for sharp lyricism. Inspired by female emcees like Lauryn Hill, without denying the prowess of those like Lil Kim, RyanNicole offers a welcomed sexy intelligence to the game. She is lasting, her words timeless and thick. RyanNicole is an instant classic, reviving artistry and industry in this modern era.
