Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Here's a video of Vicki Raye performing at Chrystal Hartigan's Songwriter's Showcase at Broward Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Ft. Lauderdale in collaboration with Daniel Pearl World Music Days on October 20.

Vicki Raye is a country music artist born in Puerto Rico, adopted, and raised in South Florida. She started performing in Miami at 8 years old. According to her MySpace she has also served as frontwoman for rock band Emerald Steel and is a Nashville based professional songwriter.

She has a great line in this video where she says, "This song's been on hold in Nashville five times. You quickly learn in Nashville that a hold doesn't mean a whole heck of a lot 'til it's wrapped in Wal-Mart."
