Sweet Moment's

Originally from Queens, New York, Rhenda Fearrington always delivers an authentic and warm presentation of Jazz Standards mixed with Soulful originals. She is "true" to her roots which includes performing on the International stage as a back-up singer for Roberta Flack and MTUME, respectively! When Rhenda sings, it's quite evident there's a story being told...and it begins and ends with Joy! 
She has also spent years as a Commercial/Jingle Singer; 15 years performing for schools with her "Feel Sooo Good Tour;" a motivational program that focuses on building the self-esteem of children! 

Rhenda Co-produced her first solo CD, "This Moment's Sweetness," in 2012, with prolific Philadelphia Jazz Bassist, Mike Boone, featuring Tenor Saxophone Legend, Larry McKenna. 
Rhenda is also a writer who had a published column, "The ABC of it," in the Suburban & Wayne Times, for 6 years as well as writing Children's Book Reviews for Kids Can Press, LTD (Canada). Rhenda writes independent blogs/reviews about the Philadelphia Jazz scene, and is currently pursuing having her two children's books published, in 2014.

Rhenda was honored for her patronage and voice at Chris’s Jazz CafĂ© here in Philadelphia, where she has a special place on their Wall of Fame. “It’s such an honor. I feel like Cinderella coming out of a pumpkin when I walk in at Chris’s “ Rhenda says

For the little girl from Queens who belted out Roberta Flack tunes, the time has come for her to wear the glass slipper.
