AboutRobin Latimore

 Robin started singing as a little girl for devotion at her mother’s  revival services and in church. “When your mom is the minister, you  don’t have a choice”. It was her parents who sparked her musical  interest. Her dad had a passion for traditional and contemporary  jazz as well as big band swing, and her mom pushed gospel and  inspirational music. Together, Robin developed a love for these  two genres more than any other.

 She is a graduate of The Fort Valley State College where her talent  was nurtured and requested highly. After winning several talent  competitions there, people started noticing that this young lady  had talent. She joined her first band in 1988. The Darren Winters  Ensemble displayed a huge array of different music styles and this  was something that sparked Robin’s interest in singing more than  one type of music. She is no stranger to R & B, Rap, Country  Western, and other alternative genres. She is heavily influenced by  her idols Phyliss Hyman, Layla Hathaway, Oleta Adams, The Clark  Sisters, Kim Burrell, Maysa, and Jennifer Holiday.

 Even with all this, Robin couldn’t (and wouldn’t) escape her  gospel heritage. She started working as a choir director in Warner  Robins, Georgia at the age of 19 and has continued to share her  views on gospel music as well as teaching it with several  denominational churches. “It gives me such a rush when gospel  music is sang and ministered with passion”. She continues to do this  same type of work, as she is the current Music Director of a  prominent Baptist church in Lithonia, Ga.

Currently, Robin is the lead vocalist for her band "Robin Latimore and the Bad Boys". She has recently shared the stage with jazz greats Ronnie Laws, Phil Perry, and Jeff Lorber. As exciting as that was, she anxiously awaits the release of her upcoming CD project. This project has an anticipated release of late Summer 2012

With her already hectic schedule, she continues to flourish her self-made business, Robin’s Singing Telegrams of Atlanta. “This business will always be my baby. The looks of disbelief, the tears, and the shock of the whole experience makes me want to do this forever!”
