Miki Howard represents passionate vocal artistry wrapped in a diminutive package of beauty, sass and candor. Grammy-nominated Howard already has a stunning catalog of music wide ranging in style – from the breezy “Come Share My Love” and the steamy funk of “Ain’t Nobody Like You” to her soul-stirring signature “Love Under New Management,” the jazzy “Imagination” and the inferno that is “That’s What Love Is” (her duet with the late, great Gerald Levert).
The one and only Miki Howard is a Grammy-nominated, Soul Train Award-winning and critically acclaimed Jazz and Rhythm & Blues songstress. Miki has had two #1 singles (“Ain’t Nobody Like You” and “Ain’t Nothin’ In The World”), five Top 10 singles one Top 20 single and four Top 100 singles on the Billboard R&B Singles Charts. Miki has also had two Top 10 albums, two Top 20 albums and three Top 100 albums on the Billboard R&B Album Charts so far in her career. Miki even played the role of one of her idols, the great Billie Holiday in Spike Lee’s film “Malcolm X,” alongside Denzel Washington. She has collaborated and toured with music greats like Al Jarreau, Roy Ayres, Marcus Miller, David Sanborn, Jermaine Jackson, Hiroshima, Wayne Henderson, Ronnie Laws, Augie Johnson and Side Effect and Norman Brown.
Miki Howard is now touring the US and abroad, combining her chart topping hit songs with a mixture of Jazz, modern standards and good old blues to create a musical feast for the heart and soul and will release a new album of jazz standards in 2022.
