Best Local Vocalist

Chantae Cann

Staff Pick

There’s transformative power in CHANTAE CANN’s voice. The background singer for India.Arie has been seducing Atlanta for the past year with her lilting covers of classics like the Stylistics’ “People Make the World Go Round.” When she sings it live, she colors the song with delicate pastel strokes from her pretty alto in a way that brings new sentiment to the standard. By song’s end, she’s rear-ranged the vocals and remixed the lyrics into something altogether new. It offers an enticing peek into her upcoming debut of original material she’s crafting with the help of another local powerhouse, singer/producer PJ Morton. We can’t wait. www.myspace.com/oo_chantae_oo.
