The voice of Vickie R Thomas is oral napalm. She's one of the most powerful Sopranos in the New Orleans Opera Association. Find her teaching all things " Voice " and more at the Celebration School of Fine Arts. Also Ms. Thomas is the Witch and Mother for " Hansel & Gretel " at the New Orleans Opera Metropelican Division.
When I saw her wearing one of my flowers in Star photographer, Gus Bennett's long-awaited photo series ( New Orleans People Project 2013 ) I was in love. Did some extended research and I was a full blown groupie ! Her style and signature grace are unmatched to anyone in her industry. The fact she's from my hometown is icing on the kingcake too. She is very down to earth and her heart is as big as her voice on stage. I caught up with Vickie to see just how she finds the time to teach voice to the lucky few and be the voice to the masses.
