New Orleans-born singer-songwriter NICOLE SLACK JONES has an incredible and unmatched voice. If you feel saying that is presumptuous, take a listen and you
will see: it’s a fact.
Relative of legendary Fats Domino, daughter of gospel saxophonist Philip Slack Senior and church choir director Judy Slack, NICOLE SLACK JONES mastered her musical skills in the Pentecostal church. (Church Of God In Christ).
Gospel music follows her almost daily and secular music has no place in the religious culture perpetrated by this southern United States family. The one who venerates Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston and Deborah Cox will tell you with humor how she proceeded, as a child, to listen to her idols secretly.
As much as breathing, singing is a necessity for NICOLE who becomes a sensation throughout her community, first at school, then on local stages (New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Snug Harbor...).
Barely graduated, she released her first self- produced album, reinterpreting the greatest standards of Soul and Gospel. Her talent for interpretation takes her around the world via nearly 700 performances, either as a main artist or in collaboration with other singers such as Aloe Blacc, Zucchero, Percy Sledge, Tony Renis, Corky Hale, Stevie Wonder, and Lionel Richie.
