Born and raised in St. Louis, MO Rhoda G. was introduced to music early in life. Her dad (Fred Graham Jr.) was a singer with a local group named "The Migrations" and covered artist such as "The Temptations" and "The Whispers". Her mom's (Viveca Graham) favorite artists included Anita Baker and Luther Vandross. Rhoda started her musical journey singing in the children's choir at her church, Saints Fellowship Mission, at the age of 9 years old. When she was 12 the drummer of the church left and Rhoda decided she would teach herself to play drums. She learned that she was a pretty quick learner and was able to keep a beat with no problem. After about a year of drumming there were way more drummers than needed and She decided she wanted an instrument of her own. She begged her dad to buy her a saxophone and He purchased her first one days before her Mother lost her fight with cancer. The saxophone instantly became way more than just an instrument for Rhoda, it became her healing process. Rhoda taught herself to play the saxophone by taking it to church Sunday after Sunday and playing off to the side (so no one could really hear her) until she was ready to play up front. Today Rhoda is a very well known Saxophonist in St. Louis, MO and has even performed in Dubai, and the Bahamas. In 2017 Rhoda was chosen to compete in the Amateur Night At The Apollo competition in Harlem NY and she went all the way to the final round. She took First Place her first and second round and Second place her third round. Rhoda has performed with and opened up for artists such as: Donnie McClurkin, Daryl Coley, Vickie Winnans, Chante Moore, Donell Jones, Carl Thomas, Naughty By Nature, Freddie Jackson and many many more.
Rhoda's greatest joy in life was holding her daughter London in her arms for the first time. Losing her mom at a very young age left her feeling alone until her little princess came into the world. To her family is everything. Rhoda's goal is to become a household name around the world. Now sit back and watch her soar!
