FRANKIE RAYE, SINGER/SONGWRITER
“(Frankie Raye) has a lovely voice and great stage presence. She sang a number of very nice original songs, and then delivered the best — by far —version of “No Diggity” I have ever heard. Truly spectacular. ”
Accompanying her powerful voice and wide vocal range with guitar, Frankie Raye is a singer/ songwriter based out of Tampa, FL. In 2016 she released her debut album, “A Thing or Two About a Dream”. Her new album, “Brave”, is targeted for release in January 2019.
