effortless, brilliant phrasing, she disappears in the role, serves the music and

such as classical, pop, gospel, jazz, spirituals, and musical theater. She also gives

vocal training for orators in broadcasting, infomercial. preaching as well as voiceover

Fl as a candidate for the Jimmy Awards in New York City. She has also trained

professional singing artists with an internationally released single and video

that was the highlight at the EDC Orlando 2019 and hit #1 on the Billboard

charts in Italy.

She originally began teaching as a request to so many fans who admired her

singing and repeatedly asked if she taught in addition to her professional

career. For years the reply was always a resounding “No!!” With constant

travelling and touring in other countries she rarely ever stayed in one place

for an extended period. and simply did not have enough down time to be

consistent with training other individuals. Therefore, taking on students

wouldn’t be something she could commit to. Nonetheless, she realized there

was a gift and an overwhelming passion inside her to share with other

performers. However, she noticed how little performing opportunities there

were available for minorities. Her passion began to grow so strong that she

created performing opportunities for those in urban communities and

opened her very own teaching studio called Ultimate Soprano, Inc. Its

mission is “To provide an open door for aspiring young artists.” Through

Ultimate Soprano, Inc. Mrs. Mitchell developed Ultimate Soprano Vocal

Studio which presents three annual fully produced concerts for her singers

with live band, dancers, commentators, and actors.

Mrs. Mitchell has a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Vocal performance from

Morgan State University and a Master of Music degree from the Juilliard

School and is an eight-time award winning director of "The Book False

Profit" live-streaming now on Tubi TV.
