Nominee Closeup: Rachelle Farrell

Outstanding Jazz Artist

Evidence of her amazing almost seven-octave range, jazz vocalist Rachelle Farrell’s recent release “Individuality (Can I Be Me)” has soared to the top of the contemporary R&B and jazz charts, following three successful albums, and a personal eight-year hiatus. Farrell receives her first award nomination with this year’s NAACP Image Awards category for Outstanding Jazz Artist.

Nominated alongside accomplished jazz legend George Duke, who produced 10 of the 11 tracks of her current release, Farrell pays tribute to the NAACP and her mentor by saying, “the NAACP Image Awards seeks to recognize what the NAACP represents: honesty, quality, integrity, and excellence. How else could one explain George Duke’s nomination?”

Yet, with Farrell’s unique vocal talent and attractive alternative style, she’s never been nominated for a Grammy or American Music Award.
