Vocalist Alyson Williams, born in Harlem, New York to a swing band leader and dancer-turned-nurse, began dancing at four years old. Her lithe movements and rhythm eventually won her a dance scholarship to Marymount Manhattan College. While at Marymount, she fervently pursued musical theater with the hope of landing on Broadway. She has performed in over 12 hit musicals, including a Broadway run of Rollin' on the TOBA One Mo' Time and the 25th anniversary revival of the Wiz with George Faison. Ms.
