Lakeetra Knowles & Music Train Band
A Native of Little Rock, Arkansas, Lakeetra Knowles is an American singer with a fresh and diverse sound. As a southern woman whose background stems from Arkansas, Dallas and Louisiana, she attributes her Soulful and diverse style to her upbringing in Church, but also to the Theater, where she also grew up. Not only did she grow up under the guidance of pastors (her grandfather and uncle), which included learning the gospel and attending weekly baptismal services, but she also studied acting, which started at the young age of 11. She went on to work as a professional actress and singer on Broadway, film, and TV for many years. “I’m a storyteller, whether I’m acting or singing”.
