Vanda Guzman, americana, è un mix di dolcezza e d'energia. Una voce potente ed uno spirito danzante. Inizia la sua carriera artistica da giovanissima a Baltimora,nel Maryland. Inizia poi a viaggiare finché decide di trasferirsi definitivamente in Germania, dove si esibisce anche per grandi multinanazionali, quali BMW, Mercedes, Price Water House e altri. Oltre a dedicarsi al gospel, suo genere preferito, ha cantanto con diversi artisti di fama internazionale, quali Patti Labelle ,Liza Minnelli, Michael Bolton, Wilson Pickett, Three Ladies of Blues, and American diva's.
Canta, ma sopratutto balla: si scatena, improvvisa passi, fa smorfie con il viso, interagisce con il pubblico. Lo trasporta letteralmente, viaggiando sulle note di pezzi famosissimi, come ad esempio “Simply the Best” di Tina Turner, “Respect” di Aretha Franklin che conclude dicendo “I want only a little bit of respect”. E ancora “Killing me softly with his song” dei The Fugees, improvvisando una sorta di pezzo rappato. Straordinaria la sua interpretazione che il pubblico premia ogni volta con un prolungato applauso. Un concerto veramente elettrizzante in compagnia di una donna americana dalla voce potente e dolce che riesce a regalare emozioni forti e performances originali.Attualmente in radio il suo singolo “Life is so beautiful".
Questo progetto comprende tutti i grandi successi dei più grandi artisti della tradizione afro-americana, di Blues, Jazz, R & B e Rock'n'Roll: da Ella Fitzgerald ad Aretha Franklin, da Tina Turner, ad Alicia Keys.
