Vera Sims is a New Orleans native born June 8,1973. I graduated from Picayune High School in 1991. College graduate from Northwestern University with a master's degree in Adult Learning and Development/Work Force Development. A mother of three beautiful young ladies. I started out singing in the church choir at the age of 5 and have continued to sing solos my church home Little Zion Baptist church of New Orleans La. Due to the damage of hurricane Katrina I relocated to Birmingham Al for 10 years. I have sung for countless wedding ceremonies, comedy shows, parties. I had the opportunity to sing in the stage play “Church Mess” in Birmingham Al and Miami Florida. I was honored to sing as one of the Raelettes in "An Evening with Ray" under the direction of the talented Sam Warren as he graced the stage as Ray. I also played the role of one of the church ladies in the stage play “The Color Purple,” The princess that kissed a frog in “Disenchanted,” and Momma in “Sweet Potato Queens.” I also sang in tribute shows and music shows such as Aretha Franklin tribute show, Vintage Vogue show, Girl Groups of the 60’s, and Back to the Chapel Come and Get Your Love. Coming October 21-29, I will appear as Dr. Scott and an usherette In Rocky Horror.
