Vocalist to perform first single
9/13/2013, 6 a.m.
Since winning the Essence R&B Star Search in 2011, Greta Prince has been busy.
Last year, she released her first single, “You Should Know,” with Malaco Music Group on iTunes and other digital platforms.
It has been doing well.
“It reached Top 5 status on R&B Radio Airplay for several weeks,” said Prince, who lives in Lithonia.
On Sept. 21, Prince will perform that song live during CrossRoadsNews’ 2013 Senior/Baby Boomer Expo at the Mall at the Stonecrest.
Nabbing the coveted Essence Pebbles Present: R&B Star Search contest on July 3, 2011, in New Orleans was a big feather in Prince’s cap.
The 2000 Redan High graduate nailed the title with her rendition of Deniece Williams’ “Free” in front of 50,000 people at the Louisiana Superdome. The title brought her instant celebrity and hundreds of Facebook fans.
This past July, she made her third solo appearance at the Essence Music Festival performing in the McDonald’s Superlounge before Leela James and Jody Watley.
But for Prince, singing before her hometown crowd is always a pleasure.
She will perform at 3:30 p.m. on the Main Stage near Sears on the mall’s lower level.
“I love to see people relax and unwind when I sing,” she said Sept. 10. “I just love to bring a smile to their faces.”
Prince says she gets joy from singing and she is working out terms for a full album deal.
In the meantime, she is writing and recording new music independently.
“I just feel it’s my calling,” she said.
Prince performs at private events like weddings, receptions and parties. She sings with the Adult Praise Team at Hopewell Baptist Northeast in Grayson and co-directs and sings with the church’s Youth Praise Team.
On Friday nights, fans can catch her at Taste Bar and Lounge in Conyers.
When she is not writing music or singing, Prince works part time as a bridal consultant.
