Audio-only version:

Jully Black is known as “Canada’s Queen of R&B.” From opening for Kanye West in Singapore to performing for the Queen; from performing on the same bill as Celine Dion at the 2012 Jamaica Jazz Fest to being the main act for Canada Day celebrations in London, England, Jully Black has perfected her live performance that showcases her unique and powerful voice, as well as her ability to engage audiences of all ages and backgrounds.  She has brought tens of thousands of people to their feet in venues around the world and has received extraordinary reviews from critics.

This Canadian-born, triple threat (singer/songwriter/performer) has a charming attitude and charismatic personality that has helped propel her career to reach milestones that most artists struggle to achieve in a lifetime - winning multiple Juno awards, penning songs for the likes of Nas and Destiny’s Child as well as performing along side artists such as Elton John, Etta James, Jay-Z, Sean Paul, and Alicia Keys to name a few.

Her fourth highly anticipated album, entitled “Made In Canada ” has been described as “The New Motown Sound”. Traditionally, Jully is from the school of R&B, with influences like Etta James and Tina Turner.  [www.jullyblack.com]
