A donation check will be presented to a representative from St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the American Cancer Society the night of the event.
About Equoia Coleman
Equoia Coleman was born and raised in the Southside of Memphis, TN. She has been singing since the tender age of two years old. Her talent was discovered by her mother and father who was amazed at how mature her voice sounded at such a young age. Whenever she would hear songs that were playing on the radio, she would learn them word for word after only listening to them a few times. Later in her youthful life, she began to sing in the choir at the church where she attended with her godmother.
Music has always been a part of Equoia's life. Her grandmother and her twin sister grew up singing when they were young adults and their beautiful voices were passed down to Equoia. She was recognized as the young girl with the big voice after representing her junior high school at the City of Memphis talent contest and winning the overall event. From then on, her talent was non-stop. She began singing the National Anthem at many professional sporting events, casting for leading roles in stage plays, writing songs and jingles for commercials and radio advertisements.
Known as a B.B. Queen, Equoia is currently singing and traveling with the B.B. King Blues Corporation through the B.B. King Cruise Line. She has been traveling internationally since 2014 where she has performed in many different countries. She now travels with the band weekly from Memphis to New Orleans.
Equoia’s drive to continue with her career is sparked by her children. She is the mother of three sons and the guardian of her niece and nephew. After losing her two youngest sons’ father suddenly to death, her determination grew stronger and stronger. She credits God who has given her the strength to move forward.
Her foray of musical talents has touched the hearts of many with her soulful crooning sounds. She has recently decided to give back by using her musical talents. Equoia started her own foundation entitled the “Pink Note,” which is her very own concert to raise money for the Cancer Awareness Foundation. This idea came after losing her god-great-grandmother to breast cancer and other family members who are survivors. Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, also her birth month, she thought that this would be a great time of the year to have her benefit concert.
Equoia is known to have a heart of gold and a voice like an angel. Once you have had the privilege to hear her sing, you will never forget, nor will you ever get enough of the sweet soulful sounds of Equoia Coleman.
