Cheri “Note” Anderson is a silky smooth singer/songwriter who artfully blends classic Jazz, contemporary Jazz, and R & B, with lyrics that are rooted in love. Her unique style, she has coined as “Jazzin’ the Spirit”, is a fusion of Jazz and inspirational music.
Each song, be it original or standard, is belted with the smoothness of Nancy Wilson and the huskiness of Phyllis Hyman, in a range that reaches five octaves! Her music has been described as rich, rhythmic, sassy, and enlightening.
Cheri is a former member of Funk-a-fied (later became known as Midnight Star) and has opened for Nancy Wilson, Maxi Priest, Phil Perry, and E.W.F. Patrice Rushen produced earlier projects. She has also performed with Benny Maupin of "Head Hunters" fame, and has jammed with Roy Ayers, Jennifer Lewis, and Billy Mitchell.
Cheri has performed on radio, television, and in corporate board rooms. Her mission is to inspire people in thinking more positively about life, living their lives fully, and being "in love" with the blessings of life. Her passion is sharing this through music. Her CD "Jazzin' the Spirit" is played on Unity Radio, Positive Music Radio, ITunes, and Myspace.
Cheri is part of the Positive Music Movement, a new expression that features inspirational lyrics with all genres of music. She has introduced contemporary Jazz to this new expression, putting her mark on the movement with funky beats, rhythmic sounds, and soulful riffs pioneering an eclectic blend of inspirational lyrics with stirring background music that moves the listener.
”Cheri’s music touches your Soul.”
