The story of Frenchie Davis is one of greatness threaded with many details. Though hard to summarize, the short version would be... Songbird Frenchie Davis was born in Washington, D.C. and raised in Los Angeles, CA where she started her musical journey performing in plays throughout her school years, eventually deciding to audition for the second season of the groundbreaking FOX show American Idol. Her success on the show launched the Howard University alum's rise to fame rather quickly and she has been progressing ever since. Frenchie moved on to join the Broadway cast of the hit show Rent and played the role of Effie White in Dream Girls, leading to four wonderful years on Broadway, eventually becoming a Grammy nominated artist for her involvement in the revival of Ain't Misbehavin. Recently, the singing starlet joined Team Christina on NBC's hit show The Voice, becoming one of the Top Four Finalists. Her cover of "When Love Takes Over" landed at #3 on the iTunes Dance Chart, launching her undeniable talent into the national spotlight yet again. Frenchie has now ventured out and established her own label, FDMG (Frenchie Davis Music Group), building a team of professionals to hit the road at high speed. She teamed up with international singer/songwriter Janice Robinson (Ashley Tisdale, Deborah Cox) to record her first smash single "Love's Got A Hold of Me," produced by rising star Marco Borrero. The song will be featured on Frenchie's upcoming debut "dance pop" EP. An epic Mad Max style video directed by Ch'an Andre and Brian Friedman (Britney Spears) will accompany the incredible single that will drop in September. The songbird also plans to release a solo Christmas album and is in talks to develop a plus-size lingerie line. With a career most people only dream about, a loyal fan base that increases every day, and a passionate love for life, Frenchie is a beacon of positivity wherever she goes."I want to live my life to inspire people to be brave and courageous," says Frenchie, "to believe in themselves and never take no for answer."
