Singer, songwriter, arranger, producer, pianist and recording artist, Andrews is not just a phenomenal talent, she is an experience to remember. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Sherma and her all-star band will perform songs covered by the late great Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin! This is not a typical tribute show. Sherma Andrews will ignite the stage and keep you wanting more.
She was born the youngest in a musically gifted family living in the Caribbean Island of Trinidad. As a child prodigy, Sherma began playing the accordion at age 4. Her perfect pitch and her ability to play any song after only one listening led her to serve as the church organist at age 7. In retrospect, she was always destined for a bright future in music.
Sherma’s active participation in prestigious song competitions and talent shows won her numerous national awards. Sherma was awarded a National Merit Scholarship for gifted youth to study at the accredited Berklee College of Music, Boston MA, which is acclaimed by industry insiders to be this nation’s “go-to” school for contemporary music.
At Berklee, Sherma studied with many of the most respected musicians and music professors in the industry. It is not surprising that after graduating with honors and gaining a wealth of experience, she was asked to teach at Berklee. During that time, Sherma formed a band with renowned saxophonist, Markus Hauser that toured Switzerland, Austria, and Germany. She was hailed by the German press as “A true star who has graced us with her presence before she vanishes beyond reach.”
Sherma toured and worked with many accomplished recording artists. She filled in for Whitney Houston during Enrique Iglesias’ World Tour. She worked with Branford Marsalis, Britney Spears, Donna Summer and opened for Michael Mc Donald and Michael Feinstein. Sherma also performed for President Bill Clinton’s Foundation Gala and many festivals including The Montreux and Cape Cod Jazz Festivals.
Her songs have been played on The Young and The Restless, Against The Ropes, The Sopranos and other TV shows. Sherma Andrews is no stranger to the stage and has performed in Madison Square Garden, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Bergen Performing Arts Center, The American Music Awards, Teen Choice Awards, Billboard Music Awards and many others.
