Where It All Started
Johnetta Alston Lake has a strong musical background that began in church. It’s that foundation that allowed her to develop and embrace her own style. A style influenced by many greats, who paved the way for her. A style honed on stage in musicals, singing groups, her one woman cabaret act, background vocalist, session work and as a singer/songwriter. Music is in her DNA, growing up surrounded by immediate family, aunts, uncles, and cousins of singers and musicians. Music even brought her husband Sid, a bass player into her life. Johnetta was a member of the Broadway Gospel Choir, where her powerful God-given voice, didn’t go unnoticed. Johnetta has worked with such industry icons as, Sir Andrew Lloyd Weber, Galt MacDermot, Eric Krebs, Jason Robert Brown, Ken Lundie and many, others. As an actress and singer, Johnetta was also part of the Broadway Workshops for Abyssinia, Parade and The Civil War! She’s the Host & Executive Producer of her Talk Show, 2nd Chance with Johnetta Lake, an author and playwright. She’s most excited about the release of her debut, solo, CD, “The Appointed Time”; because she knows nothing happens, until its appointed time. The best is yet to come!
