Ramona Collins

Born in Toledo, Ohio, Ramona Collins was reared in Lansing, Michigan, by a jazz pianist/singer mother--the late Alice (Collins) Carter--who encouraged her daughter to sing at an early age to combat her shyness. Today, anyone fortunate enough to witness the veteran performer at work will detect not a whit of shyness. Sultry, seasoned, witty and cool are words that come to mind when experiencing this engaging performer whose command of the stage and vast repertoire have helped her establish a solid rapport with club, concert and festival audiences wherever she goes.

Ramona recorded early in her career, which has spanned over 30 years. She made her debut at 16, singing standards on a recording accompanied by her mother and a drummer.
