Stellar vocals, original sound, dynamic performer, writer, and actress, all define recording artist Camille Newman. Born and raised in Jamaica West Indies, Camille easily found her calling in music at an early age. She was first a violinist but then went on to pursue her gift in song. After entering and winning countless talent competitions, it was only a matter of time before she would turn her gift into her ministry. Camille migrated to the U.S. in 1992 and when she was just 15, quickly caught the attention of major record labels eager to invest in her talents. Despite disappointments and a few setbacks, Camille kept going. In 2006, Camille was casted for the lead role as Effie in the revival of the Broadway hit “Dreamgirls” directed by Tony Award winner Ben Harney. It was there that Camille confirmed her place in music and in life. Camille began working on her solo project right away, and in 2009 she released her first studio album “Unashamed.” The album was a collection of songs and letters to God pouring out her heart in every note, on every track. Her sophomore effort “A Place Called Heaven” is nothing short of the last, a must have for all. In her music Camille bares her soul leaving her all in the lyrics. Her message is one of deliverance, forgiveness, and complete freedom in Christ. Her new album, “A Place Called Heaven,” is a pop inspired collection of songs. She sings about her struggles with life as a Christian, yet, finding hope and freedom in God. Camille is vocally trained and sings on the Praise and Worship team at Christian Cultural Center in Brooklyn, where she is a member.
