Raven’s Resume

Raven is 17 years old and has been singing, acting and dancing since the age of 11. Her debut performance on stage was as Ms. Potts in Beauty and the Beast. Since then she has taken off performing in many musical theatre shows, vocal competitions and TV appearances. In February 2011, she competed at Disney’s American Idol Experience competition and won the golden ticket that will take her to the front of the line of any one American Idol audition site  in the summer of 2011.  She will never forget that “idol” moment when she performed one of her favorite songs from Dream Girls (Listen) by one of her all time favorite artists, Beyoncé!  “I couldn’t believe it….I was a little nervous but so excited to sing something that meant so much to me!” Raven is inspired by all kinds of music and enjoys singing anything from pop, R&B, jazz, blues and country. Some of her favorite pop music icons include Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Tina Turner, and Aretha Franklin.

Raven also adores musical theatre because it combines her favorite things- singing, acting and dancing! She loves to sing big belty songs as well as classic ballads. Her community theater experience includes Bye Bye Birdie (as Rosie Alvarez), High School Musical 2 (as Taylor McKessie), Once on This Island, The Music Man,Thoroughly Modern Millie, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (as Veruca),  Tom Sawyer and many more.  In the summer of 2010, Raven performed at Cedar Fair’s Kings Island on stage singing and dancing in Way Too Much T.V. You can also catch Raven at Kings Island in Sign Sealed Delivered in the summer of 2011 where she will be performing songs from Motown. In addition to Raven’s singing and acting skills, she has had extensive dance training in tap, jazz, and hip-hop.

What’s next for Raven? “I’m going to push my limits and see what I can do. My goal is to be the complete package developing my singing, acting and dancing skills. I have done all types of theatre from middle school through my junior year of high school. I want to continue to push myself even further! ”

Raven takes seriously civic leadership and supporting local causes. She was actively involved in her school district’s efforts in securing funding for a new high school in her community. She has also been involved in Habitat for Humanity and looks forward to continuing causes that mean so much to her.
