The HOTTEST Motown Around!

Whether it's a private party or a large concert, this slow ballad, jazz, pop, rhythm & blues Diva will entice you with her rich and dynamic vocals. Yvonne Washington can go from a simple piano accompaniment to a small acoustic trio or quartet for any occasion with her 10 piece band, The Mix.

For over 6 years, Yvonne Washington has been captivating audiences in Houston with her rich dynamic vocals and has combined talents with her band, "The Mix" to offer an evening of entertainment to please any palate.

Yvonne Washington began her career with an emphasis on Jazz in Austin, TX. Highly versatile, Yvonne can belt out Aretha Franklin, sing the blues like Billy Holliday, or if you desire more contemporary music - Eryka Badu - all delivered in Yvonne's unique style. Yvonne has been back-up singer for many prominent artists, and was featured on albums by Bubba Thomas, Paul House, and Ben Wells. While in New Orleans on recent trip, she was asked to do background vocals for an upcoming c.d. by Benny Turner, the bandleader for Marva Wright, the official "Queen of Rhythm & Blues" of New Orleans; as well as entertaining the crowd at Commander's Palace Sunday Jazz Brunch.

One of her many stellar accomplishments was closing the show for Stevie Wonder on his European tour in 1970. In 1995, she was the closing act for The Temptations, Stevie Wonder, Kool & the Gang and Little Richard; and has been nicknamed "Ms. Texas "lil" Aretha".

As you can see, the Southeast Texas "Diva" along with "The Mix" can transform any occasion in to a night of supreme entertainment. Whatever function you are planning, you can depend on Yvonne Washington and her fabulous "Mix" band to provide a night of entertainment you won't soon forget.
