Paige, who grew up in Dallas, Texas, is as genuine as they come. WIth a heart for singing a mix of contemporary worship and soulful gospel, Paige strives to communicate God's love through her life and her music. After graduating with a B.A. in Music Performance from Belmont University, Paige moved to New York City. In the years that followed, her voice entered homes all over the world when she recorded as a soloist with the Grammy Award winning Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, whom she credits as a major influence on her perspective about Christian music. She performed on their Grammy winning album Live...This is Your House on which she sang 'Days of Elijah' and 'You are Holy'. She also performed on their popular Christmas album Light of the World on which she sang 'Oh Holy Night'. Determined to use her energy to make a difference in the lives of those who are less fortunate, Paige is passionate about helping malnourished children all over the world. When she submitted a project titled 'Saving the Lives of Malnourished Children' to the 2008 American Express Members Project, it was selected to be in the Top 25 out of 1190 submissions by a distinguished panel, including Jane Goodall, the U.N. Peacekeeper. After another round of voting by American Express card members, the project was selected to be in the Top 5. The project secured $100,000 in American Express funding to help thousands of malnourished children primarily in Africa gain access to nutrient rich, ready to eat foods that don't require water or refrigeration through the implementing organization, International Medical Corp. The project was covered by publications such as the Wall Street Journal's Market Watch, Fox Business and Bloomberg.com. In addition to her efforts to aid impoverished children in other countries, Paige also has the opportunity to positively impact her own community in her current job as a Vice President in Community Development Finance at a large NYC bank. Paige and her family now enjoy being members of the 30,000 member church, Christian Cultural Center in Brooklyn, New York. She has sung on two of the church's Trinity Broadcast Network specials which were viewed worldwide. While there, she has been able to complete her first solo album titled 'Who Can Compare to You?' which is being released in December 2008. A portion of the album proceeds are being donated to feed malnourished children in various countries.
