Terri Cann takes her mandate to spread the Word of God through the arts seriously and has a profound rooted love for God’s people. She is a gospel recording artist, fashion designer/stylist, writer, actress, teacher, wife and mother.
Terri’s journey began at the age of eleven, when she prayed and asked God for a voice that would bring glory to His name. Since then, the Queens native has wasted no time doing just that with upbeat tracks and soothing melodies that inspire and touch the hearts of saved and unsaved alike.
She is a formal vocal music teacher who has now pursued entrepreneurship with her own company, “The Arts Empowerment Group,” which outsources teaching artist to schools who lack arts programming. With deep beliefs in the benefit of education, she holds two Masters Degrees from Iona College and St. John’s University and plans to obtain her Doctorate in Biblical Studies in the near future.
Her God-given talents have opened many doors for the young and ambitious artist, including opportunities to perform in mainstream productions on and off Broadway productions including Dreamgirls, A Raisin in the Sun, and Born to Sing, just to name a few. Her performing arts resume is extensive including acting, dance, choreography, writing, and singing background for other artists. She is also a recipient of the coveted Tiffany Award for “Best Lead Actress in a Gospel Play.”
Her innovative fashion sense and keen business mind propelled her to open Image of RoyalT Consulting Services 2010, offering image and performance services to artist as well as start her own clothing line, “RoyalT Wear.”
Most recently, she’s been blessed to write, produce, and star in her own web series entitled “The First Lady,” a non-fictional drama series that sheds light on what women in ministry face.
With no signs of slowing down, Terri Cann is excited for what’s in store and the upcoming projects she is currently working on including the release of her Christmas EP, “A Terri Cann Christmas.” The best is truly yet to come!
