"Try to be a rainbow in someone's cloud"
Paula is a native Philadelphian and
has been singing for as long as she can remember. As most singers do, Paula
began singing in the church and continues
to praise God's name in song wherever He
Paula was born to two loving parents,
Charles & Roxie Holloway, who each
had amazing musical talent in their own
right. She is the youngest of 4 children
and grew up surrounded by music.
My mother cultivated my and my siblings'
talent, which resulted in 2 of us touring
the world with major artists.
You will always hear her say, "To God be the Glory" because she understands where her gifts come from. Paula has been Truly Blessed to work with many well-known artists over the past 45+ years.
I have toured and/or recorded with legendary artists like Anita Baker for 6 years, Patti LaBelle, Phyllis Hyman, Regina Belle, Teddy Pendergrass, Lou Rawls, Miles Jaye, Stephanie Mills, Billy Paul, Phillip Perry, Nancy Wilson, Melba Moore, Gerald Alston of The Manhattans, Howard Hewett, Cherelle and Tyrese which allowed her to cultivate a successful career as a background vocalist.
Many years of training from different sources have gone into developing Paula's singing style. Paula has recorded with many gospel groups as a soloist; The Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church ("Here Am I"), Gregory Allen and Friends ("He'll Be There"), The Philadelphia Youth Mass Choir, ("Do You Love Jesus") Philadelphia Mass Choir, True Victory, The R.J. Lovette Faith Ensemble, and The Gabrielle Hardeman Delegation.
Paula's career includes theatrical performances such as the lead role of "Dorothy" in Cheney University's production of The Wiz, Freedom Theater's "Black Nativity", and "The Gospel at Colonus".
Paula is a Singer, Song Writer, Arranger and has been Minister of Music, Worship Leader, Choir Director and Psalmist. But most importantly she wants you to know that she Loves the Lord, her Family and Loves to Sing and impact people's lives in a positive way.
