Janine Gilbert-Carter

Janine Carter was introduced to gospel, Jazz and blues at a very early age by her parents and grandmother. This Pennsylvania native cannot remember a time when music was not a part of her very existence. She began her musical journey like so many contemporary artists as a member of the choir at her church in Aliquippa, PA. She also had the opportunity to expand on her solo performances as a member of the Bach Choir of PA which performed some of Broadways most exciting musicals. Janine continued to use the gift she was given to perform at various functions and special events until she relocated to the Washington, DC Metropolitan area in the summer of 1988. During the summer of 1996 Janine performed her debut concert in the DC area at New Genesis Baptist Church, this celestial songbird has been flying ever since.

”Carter has her own way with most recognized numbers, slip- sliding octaves with an invisible shrug of brio, expanding words to multi-syllables. Tensile phrases emerge without breath being visibly taken. Singing seems as natural as breathing to this earthy, unpretentious performer. She leans in to and looks around her audience as if we're family” Alix Cohen - Broadwayworld.com
