About Yonette Odessa
Yonette Odessa Hall-Williams (stage name – Y.O. or Yonette Odessa), is a Christian singer, songwriter and recording artist. Born in Guyana, South America, and migrated to the U.S.A. with her family at fourteen (14) years.
Y.O.’s gift of singing was discovered and nurtured by my mother at six years old, singing in church and at various events in our community with my siblings.
While working on her solo career, she collaborated with other musicians and bands such as Sir Hall, Richie Righteous, ReDeem and Davidic Praise. Additionally, she regularly express my passion for music and the arts by leading Manifestation of His Praise, the dance group at her local church, where she is also a prominent member of the praise and worship team.
As if those endeavors were not time consuming enough, she still find the time to be a devoted wife, and mother to their four beautiful children.
As a singer/songwriter, she bring a very unique musical flare to her generation. Although her roots are confidently
placed in contemporary gospel, her style has been compared to several of my musical inspirations: Cece
Winans, Yolanda Adams, Jennifer Hudson.
The Closing of the year 2012 has been an amazing one for her as she finally released my debut album, “Free.” This entire album speaks about the failures, and victories of her life and she is pleased to share it with the world.
