Best Voice for Hire - 2010
Rashida Clendening is a voice to be reckoned with. The Florida native first turned heads in the '90s as San Francisco's most recognizable and frequently booked drum 'n' bass MC and singer, a role that landed her a prominent spot on Northern Ireland artist Calibre's 2001 album, Musique Concrete (Creative Source). Since then, her angelic articulations have lit up music by Stacy Burket, the Flying Skulls, STS9, and J-Boogie. Her vocal versatility also extends to live gigs with jazzy downtempo ensemble Beatropolis, recording with house music producers, and even videogame work. Clendening voiced parts for Konami's Dance Dance Revolution UltraMix game heard by millions. Listen up, S.F.: An Angel is singing.
