MARQUITA WATERS - bio

WITH NATURAL RHYTHM AND STEEL TRAP TIMING, HER VOCAL FIREWORKS HAVE BEEN APPLAUDED THROUGHOUT THE POSH NIGHT CLUB CIRCUIT.

IT WAS WRITTEN--"...THAT HEAVY JAZZ INFLUENCES CREEP INTO HER ARRANGEMENTS. HEAVY JAZZ AND A GENEROUS SHOT OF BLUES AND ROCK. SHE BENDS NOTES TO SUIT HER OWN PURPOSE, DRAGS THEM OUT IN PAINFUL BLUES STATEMENTS, BELTS THEM, WHISPERS THE WORDS, SLOWING DOWN THE MELODY TO A CRAWL AND THEN CHURNING EVERYTHING UP, IN A FRANTIC BLAST OF VIGOR AND FIRE.."

Because of Marquita's remarkable range of musical talent, her studio work for ABC, United Artists, The Crusaders, and TV show The Nanny has utilized the versatility reflected in the styles of singing she commands in her repertoire:Latin, Jazz, Rock, Top 40, Swing, R&B, Gospel, and Reggie. Quite simply, Marquita sings it all!
