I would like to introduce an individual that has been part of the Los Angeles entertainment community the majority of her life. Tarsha Rodgers a native Angelino, spent her childhood years singing in Church’s with her God- Mother Cora Martin. Cora was best known for her work with her Family Choir the notable “Sally Martin Singers”.
By age four Tarsha was performing solo at the neighborhood church. She eventually became a member of the Los Angeles Messengers, a choir founded by the late Rev. James Cleveland.
Tarsha’s sultry voice has been compared to Jill Scott, Faith Evans and even Patti Labelle. Her music styles cover R&B, Soul, Neo Soul and Smooth Jazz.
Tarsha has worked at practically every small club and major lounge throughout Southern California. She has performed at The Whiskey, The Savoy, and the House of Blues where she is a regular member of the Martini Jazz Show.
She has opened shows for El Debarge, Chisette Michele, and a string of other professionals. One of the proudest moments of Ms. Rodgers career was the opportunity to perform the National Anthem for the legendary Black Cowboy Bill Pickett.
Tarsha Rodger’s skills do not stop there. She also acts. By age 19 she sang in the musical “Prestige” at Marla’s Memory Lane. Since that time she has performed in “Grease”, “West Side Story” and “Lovers Paradise” which was nominated for Best R&B Stage Play by Hollywood Music and Media Awards.
Tarsha remains in Los Angeles where she works with her 5-piece band in which she named “Soul”. “Tarsha Rodgers & Soul” continue to perform throughout Southern California. Ms. Rodgers is also in the studio co-writing her upcoming CD release.
When in need of a great vocalist with a hot band, Tarsha is available for weddings, nite clubs and private engagements.
