Rachelle Ferrell (born May 21, 1961 in Berwyn, Pennsylvania) is an American vocalist and musician. Although she has had some success in the mainstream R&B, pop, gospel, and classical music scene, she is noted for her talents as a contemporary jazz singer. In contemporary jazz she is noted for her delivery, control, range, improvisational vocal percussion and scatting ability. Billboard Magazine has referred to her as, "easily the most accomplished, imaginative, and emotionally devastating vocalist to have emerged thus far this decade."
