Faith Harris

What Matters (Independent)

After receiving her BA degree from the University of Buffalo, in Black Studies and vocal performance, Faith became the founder and musical director of a large community choir called the Imani Music Workshop. Faith recreated Imani’s group to an exclusive band, with 7 vocalists and a rhythm section. She was the lead songwriter, played piano and created arrangements for much of the group’s repertoire.

Early success came soon, as Faith and her group toured the east coast and Canada extensively. Imani became the opening act for major performers including: Stevie Wonder, Earth, Wind & Fire, the Ojays, and Freddie Hubbard.
