Yolanda R is a classically trained vocalist, who started off like many great singers, singing in the choir.
She perfected her instrument at LaGuardia H.S. of Music & the Arts and Harlem School for the Arts. Despite her love of, and passion for singing , she strayed from her calling on more than one occasion. After meeting with many failures and internal fears, she decided that she wasn’t “cut out” to be a singer. It took many years for her to understand the words of motivational speaker Les Brown “I will fail my way to success.”
We have to make A LOT of mistakes before we get it right. And Dion Jordan is a motivational speaker who has impacted her the most in her life. He said ” I may not be the best __ [singer] , but I have the potential to get better.” In 2011, she resolved that before her lifetime was over, she would give her dream all she had. Yolanda’s burning desire to leave a musical legacy reflective of who SHE REALLY is in this world moved her to record and release her own music. It was such a pleasure to speak with Yalonda.
