Known as Columbia’s own “Queen of Soul,” Rochara Knight is a powerhouse vocalist that lights up the stage, be it with the MO Symphony, Jane Doe Revue, the Last Waltz, the Quorus: Columbia’s LGBTQA-Z Community Choir, or at local theaters such as Talking Horse Productions. Her soulful voice soars effortlessly into her knockout soprano range and dives deep into her colorful and smoky contralto sound. Her voice finds no unchartered territory, easily navigating from classical to soul to jazz to pop.
In 2019, Rochara teamed with veteran musicians Audra Sergel, Nancy Dietz, and Kelli Neale to form a new collective: “Rochara Knight and the Honey Doves,” an eclectic neo-soul originals band. RKHD’s debut at the Blind Boone Piano Concert Series in late January of 2020 was met with standing ovations and invitations to perform elsewhere, but the global pandemic had other plans.
Not to be thwarted, Rochara and group forged ahead, rehearsing and writing online, through google docs, emails, and zoom. The 2022 collective looks even brighter, after adding guitarist Caleb Alexander and vocalists Enola White and ShaMarea Houston to the cadre, and recording their first live EP at a “second debut” concert at Unity of Columbia in November of 2021.
