Tapestry of Splendor - is one of the greatest tracks on the Album, its worth buying this excellent CD just for that one track.
Born in Memphis TN, Vaneese Thomas is the amalgam of a myriad of musical influences. Blues and Jazz were standard fare in her household. Her father is R&B legend Rufus Thomas, her sister, singer Carla Thomas and her brother, keyboardist and arranger Marvell Thomas. This musical background solidly prepared her for the career upon which she embarked. Vaneese was raised at St. John Baptist Church in Memphis, TN and her Christian witness has been life-long. She has given of her talent as minister of music at several churches. She founded a professional singers' group in New York to minister at hospitals, nursing homes and prisons. Vaneese has succeeded in various musical ventures. She has recorded with artists such as Eric Clapton, Luther Vandross, her cousin, Kirk Whalum and Jonathan Butler. Vaneese has been a solo artist for Geffen Records and has performed on various television shows both in the U.S. and abroad. She can be heard daily on radio and television commercials and is a noted studio musician in New York. The creation of Peaceful Waters Music is a life-long dream come true. Not only will Vaneese be able to spread the good news of Jesus Christ herself but will be able to extend this oppurtunity to other talented Christian musicians through this record label.
