Originally from Brooklyn NY, mixed with the sassy flavors of the Carolinas and the caliente spice of Panama, Rozetta Marie was born for the stage! Representing her #GeminiLife, Rozetta Marie does it all. She’s a singer, songwriter, model, actress, radio personality, and event host.
After following her dad’s career as a Jazz musician, playing regularly for greats like Betty Carter, Rozetta knew exactly what she wanted to do for a career. MUSIC! MUSIC! and more MUSIC!
Rozetta Marie started out on the grand stages of Madison Square Garden and Lincoln Center as a theatrical modern dancer, under the instruction of the great Jaques D’Amboise of the National Dance Institute. From there she realized her gift and passion for singing and writing, and performed again at Lincoln Center on their chorus. Being the creative entrepreneur that she is, Rozetta Marie eventually became a solo artist, and started writing for local talent. She’s been told that she has a resident tone in her beautiful soultry alto voice that is not very common among today’s artists. Her writing techniques and sound are different but mesh well with any DJ playlist. She brings a confident, strong, versatile sound to the airwaves. Her latest review by Music Connection Magazine even says she’s a born performer!
Some career highlights are:
– Opening up for gospel great Vicki Winans
– Season regular on Orange Is the New Black (season.1)
– The release of her hot single “Caged Animal” via OAG Management & Distribution
– Featured artist for Melodream Entertainment and Blassingame’s New Day Associates Artist Showcase and Contest at the Newark Airport Marriott.
– Published model for What Is She To You, by Ken Devine
– Published Writer via poetry.com and Elegant Hoodness Magazine
– Radio hosting her own hit talk show called Don’t Do Dat Dummy (with a little help from a friend). As well as, guest hosting Thirdround KnockOut Radio and hosting artist showcases for Studio NYC
As you can see she’s an all around talent. Singing and writing are her passion. But, being the business woman that she is, and a true Gemini, she has her hands in everyone’s pot. She’s definitely a force to be reckoned with. As she works on her album, she shares what keeps her going and pushing harder, “Neglect not the gift that is in thee…”
