In October 2014, Paula released her first project entitled, Introducing Paula Saunders. It is a collection of timeless jazz standards that everyone is sure to enjoy.

Charlotte Saunders is the lead vocalist for her group, Charlotte Fletcher & Soigné. Providing the best in R&B, Soul and Gospel music, Charlotte Fletcher & Soigné was organized in October 2012.

She currently sings for the New Mexico Latin Jazz orchestra, leads her own ensemble and sings with the most seasoned salsa bands in the Southwest and Midwest regions.
