Camille Metoyer Moten has entertained Omaha audiences for the past 25 years. Her scope of musical abilities range from classical to jazz, 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. Upon graudation from high school she ventured to New Orleans Louisiana to further her education at Xavier University and to sharpen her singing skills in the jazz genre. While at the school she soloed with the Xavier Jazz band which gave her the opportunity to be accompanied by Ellis Marsalis (father of Wynton). Dividing her time between training as a classical singer and absorbing the jazzy notion of the New Orleans sound she honed her skills. A revelation of the importance of life with Christ left her changed. Longing to use her gift of singing as a way to help sooth and encourage the Christian in need and entice the non-believer into a life in Christ she began singing in church and writing music. After moving back to Omaha she began to embrace the musical theater scene while balancing her music ministry with the church. Her first audition cast her in the lead role at the Orpheum Theater in a production of Jesus Christ Superstar before 2000 people. This began a long career of solo, choral, and studio singing. Now often described as Omaha's most versatile singer, performing in venues ranging from opera to musical theater, jazz and gospel, 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 at the Omaha Community Playhouse. Camille has also performed at the Rose Theatre, Dundee Dinner Theater, and Stages of Omaha 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, such as the AK SAR BEN coronation and select concerts 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. In the 2006 season she starred in two productions at the Omaha Community Playhouse, SWING and RAGTIME for which she won the Barbara Ford best supporting actress in a musical award and the Omaha Entertainment Award. She also has several commercial jingles to her credit. Camille is ready to release her first CD featuring original Christian music. This CD is a collaborative effort with the talented and anointed jazz keyboardist Jim Mertz. These jazz/pop Christian tunes are fresh and new and will delight and minister to audiences everywhere.
