Lewis became a fan favorite with her powerhouse voice during Season 6 of NBC’s “The Voice.” Born in Haines City, she started her career with Grammy and Oscar Award winner Peabo Bryson, who invited her to tour the world with him as a backing vocalist and his new duet partner. Her partnership with Bryson led to a worldwide tour with Grammy and Oscar winner Celine Dion, where Lewis worked as a backing vocalist, vocal director and choreographer. Lewis headlined last year’s Jazz on a Green concert, which drew more than 1,000 people.
Harris, a guitarist, and his Central Florida-based group perform regularly at clubs and several national jazz festivals and concerts. He has opened for or performed at the same festivals as multiple national artists including Mindi Abair, Richard Elliot, Marion Meadows, The Rippingtons and Kenny G. Harris has produced three successful smooth jazz CDS which have produced four national radio hits.
