Guest Blogger: Latrice Pace

Sup folks! Sunday Best is really moving along.  I feel like we were just in ATL, Chicago, and DC auditioning singers and now we’re down to the final 4!  Some of your favorites may still be in the competition, or perhaps your favorites got sent home.  Either way, one thing that hasn’t changed are the band and background singers.  For every show and every contestant, they’ve got to be there to sing.  So many of you guys ask me about them, so I went and found out exactly who they were. So in the spirit of bringing you all the ins and outs of this season, I’m happy to have Sunday Best background vocalist Latrice Pace here as a guest blogger.  Umm, so I’m gonna stop talking now.

*passes Mic to Latrice Pace*

Let me begin with a brief bio of myself. My name is Latrice Pace and I’m the ninth child of 10. I have sang with my sisters, The Pace Sisters for 19 years and have also sang background vocals (live/studio) for numerous artists such as LaShun Pace, Ann Nesby, The Clark Sisters, Hezekiah Walker, William Murphy, Byron Cage, Darwin Hobbs, Jennifer Holliday, Kevin Bond, Shari Addison, CeCe Winans and Donald Lawrence. I have been doing urban musical theater for over 15 years and was recently featured as Nurse Nancy in Tyler Perry’s “What’s Done In the Dark.”

 

I was too excited when asked to blog about my Sunday Best experience. I had just completed a 6-week run with “Jesus Christ Superstar Gospel” at The Tony Award-winning Alliance Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia when I received a call asking if I‘d be interested in doing background vocals for Season Two of Sunday Best. Now, I don’t want to be super deep or spiritual. However, my entire life and career has been and will always be a walk of faith. So, to get this call while I was preparing to take my last bow was nothing but God. I had just prayed for Him to reveal what was next. So, to God be the glory.


When contacted by Keisha Jackson who was asked by Mr. Ray Chew to secure vocalists, I had no idea what God was setting me up for. I am honored to say that I’ve had the opportunity to work with THE Mr. Ray Chew. This is a name I’ve heard for years and never imagined working with him. I’m also humbled that Keisha called me. She knows numerous singers in the city yet I got the call. 

 

Preparation for the show consisted of 12-hour rehearsals daily and began with a 180 song list (which continued to grow) that we needed to familiarize ourselves with. The work load at times seemed to be a bit overwhelming, but the beauty of working with music professionals such as Mr. Ray Chew, Jaynell Grayson (his phenomenal assistant) Donald Lawrence (my mentor and friend), the musicians, and my co-laborers Keisha Jackson, Danetra Moore Jackson, and Daniel Moore is that we all were able to collaborate. Their ingenious collaborations assured me that the task was easily accomplishable. During the first few days of rehearsals I was blown away; the talent was amazing. Each singer had their individual style, was comfortable and confident with their style and executed masterfully. I must say one in particular (Latice Crawford) left me in tears and that was just from rehearsal.

 

Sunday Best was an experience like none other and it was my pleasure to accompany and assist each contestant in bringing their vocal visions to reality. I pray for their continued success.

In closing I’d like to thank the following for having a vision for excellence and presenting the show with such: Nia Hill & D‘Angela Proctor, whom I worked with over 10 years ago during a Tyler Perry production. Also, to the President of programming, Loretha Jones whom I also worked with 6 years ago during the filming of “The Fighting Temptations.”

 

Sunday Best was the most rewarding television experience I’ve ever had and I anxiously await my next.
