Camille Metoyer Moten has entertained audiences for the past 25 years. She has a scope of musical abilities that include a range of classical to jazz as well as Broadway to contemporary Christian. Growing up in a home where Dinah Washington, Nancy Wilson and Carmen McCrae resonated supreme many hours of the day, she soaked in the jazz styling and phrasings that take a song to a new place. She ventured to New Orleans Louisiana to further her education at Xavier University and to sharpen her singing skills in the jazz genre. Dividing her time between training as a classical singer and absorbing the jazzy notion of the New Orleans sound she honed her skills.
Now often described as Omaha’s most versatile singer, Camille has clearly made a lasting mark on the city’s musical scene. She has garnered prestigious awards for portrayals of Eva Peron in Evita and Fanny Brice in Funny Girl. Camille has also performed at all of the major theaters of the city as well as with Opera Omaha. She has toured regionally with the Nelson Riddle Orchestra and Cabaret Theater and is a featured performer at many events throughout the city including special performances with the Symphony. Her musical travels have carried her to Barcelona, Spain. She has performed with world class artists such as Sylvia McNair and enjoys performing her one-woman cabaret show, which features popular jazz songs of the 20th century. She also has several commercial jingles to her credit and has been the recipient of the Omaha Entertainment award among others. There are few in the area with the experience and savvy of this vocalist.
Camille released her first CD featuring original Christian music entitled Go Forward in 2007.
