A commanding voice combined with a charismatic stage presence. This statement best describes Rachel Woznow, a 16 year old, Edmonton born aspiring singer/songwriter. Rachel performs a blend of pop/R&B genres. She is a unique talent in that her on-trend pop sound is edged with a distinctly soulful quality. Rachel sings with a sincerity and maturity rarely found in such a young performer. Her powerful vocals have been likened to many seasoned performers such as Christina Aquilera, Kelly Clarkson, Demi Lovato, and most recently, Jesse J! Rachel has been working with a professional vocal coach since the age of 8 and has performed and competed extensively throughout Western Canada during that time. In 2011 Rachel was chosen from over 3000 competitors as the winning vocalist for the Canada-wide “ YTV Virtual Next Star Competition”. Rachel received over 150,000 votes from across Canada! As the winner, Rachel was flown out to Toronto to appear on the live finale show. Currently Rachel is thrilled to be working with top Edmonton producers, Dan Davidson and Ari Mastoras of Hands Up! Music recording her demo album. Stay tuned – you will soon be hearing big things from this vocal dynamo!
