Mariama Whyte



By Dale Ricardo Shields 
I believe we are all artists. We have the ability to transform ourselves, create our lives, and inspire others to design their own paths. I’m a big dreamer and I hope to inspire more people to dream big and outside the limits we create for ourselves.  All things are possible with God!” 


One of my life-long dreams was to have the chance to meet and perform with David Foster, one of the most prolific music producers of our time.

My dream came true in ’09 when he picked me as a semi-finalist for his vocal competition.
“Whether in the recording studio, featured on national stages, or crafting a poignant song, Mariama Whyte has the secret recipe that is certain to satisfy even the most discerning palette. She was hand-picked by mega-producer David Foster for… his national talent search where she emerged as a favorite and semi-finalist in the competition. She has played leading roles in the Broadway national tours of The Color Purple (“Celie” and “Nettie”) and The Lion King (“Rafiki” and “Shenzi.”)”
