What to Expect
Are you looking for a performance that will keep your attention from start to finish?
Are you tired of the same ole boring performers whose shows never change?
Well you have come to the right place. From Dinner to Disco, Charita Franks delivers a performance you will definitely enjoy but never forget.
She's a high energy performer, who is intimate yet dramatic and passionate. You never know what she's going to do next...and you'll never see her do the same show twice.
People say, "she's not like any other vocalists I've seen, but she sure can pull people out of their salads"
Charita Renee Franks (aka) RITA, is all about musical creativity and spontaneity. She has a smooth side and a high energy side. People say that she sounds like none other. She can change the mood of a room in an instant when she opens her mouth and the magic comes out. Singing with a passionate connection to the music, she may act out parts of songs, add humorous elements, truly engaging the audience with her performances.
Rita sings the songs that people forgot about, setting her apart from most performers. Her music tells stories and she puts on a show that grabs the undivided attention of everyone in the room.
Charita started singing at a very young age in church. In 2004 she joined her first band, the Chosen Few Band, leaving in 2010. Ralph Johnson, band leader for the Chosen Few, was hard on her, but it has all paid off. He was and still is one of the best band leaders around. She has also performed with In Demand Band, Afterthought and NU Soul, 4Ever Band, and Special Request. Special Request band leader John English has taught Rita more than she could imagine about all aspects of music, professionalism, and order. So this brings us to the present with Charita leading her own band featuring the finest musicians N.E Ohio has to offer.
Charita is known for her crazy personality that brings the WOW factor to her performances. It does not matter if the song was sung by a male or a female, she nails it. She’s not afraid to think outside the box or take chances. It doesn’t matter whether it’s accapella or laying it down with a full band,
“THE SHOW MUST GO ON”.
