In 2006, she released her first contemporary Gospel debut album titled I Give My All.

Paula Saunders is a familiar face in the Kansas City music scene. Her claim to fame has been the ability to sing beautifully in the alto and tenor range, something that is uncommon among many female vocalists. 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. They provide a fun, interactive experience. They have opened for Morris Day & The Time, Sister Sledge, Will Downing and the Average White Band.

Jackie Zamora has become one of the most popular singers and entertainers in the American Southwest. She began studying music at the age of 13 with her mother Estela in her native home of Lima, Perú. After relocating to New Mexico, Jackie sang with the Western New Mexico University and University of New Mexico choral ensembles, but soon took a detour from choral performance to explore her love for Latin music. 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.
