BEING BEAUTIFUL ME
This is Andrétta … She was inspired by her Grandmother, who was a singer, and
that closeness gave her the foundation to become intrigued and want to join the
world of the performing arts. When Andrétta was ten, her grandmother took her
to the summer camp at the Salvation Army to socialize with her peers and
showcase her artistic skills. Dancing helped her overcome her shyness and
developed an original rhythmic imagery. She is from a rich musical family of men
who are musicians, singers, composers. One of her Uncles, Sherman Garnes, was
in the famous group “Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers were inducted in the
“Rock -n- Roll Hall of Fame”. Andrétta, like many youth of the day, was bullied

became her way to face the world.

days she sang live at the famous Apollo Theatre in Harlem, New York. One day,
her grandmother decided to expose her to the business and took a trip to
the Apollo Theatre. While they were sitting in the audience, Andrétta, determined
to perform decided asked Ralph Cooper Jr., how she and the dance company
could get an audition and be a part of the Apollo’s showcase. He told her to
