Shalanda defines herself as “a perpetual learner and student, instructor, performer, recording

Baltimore, Maryland, Shalanda began her musical studies at the Baltimore School for the Arts.
After studying under Robert Cantrell, she graduated and continued her vocal studies in

Hoffman, Marlena Malas, and Ruth Falcon, she continued in furthering her education and
received her Master’s from The Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. 
She has appeared in operas, recitals, and has premiered various new compositions. That poised
her to become the recipient of the Peter Mennin Prize, Leontyne Price award recipient and is a

Even though Opera is her first love, she has found a true passion for Jazz, Inspirational music,
and gospel. Having appeared on the Bobby Jones Show for a live recording with James Johnson
and The Arkansas Gospel Mass Choir, Shalanda released her first single “Unusual Favour on
November 12, 2014.
She is inspired by teaching, learning, practicing, and rehearsing and is thankful for every
opportunity to inspire others with love, kindness, and her heartfelt joy in singing.
