Pam Rose - Ave Maria
Born in Chattanooga, she moved with her family to Atlanta, then to the East Coast of Florida, near Cape Canaveral, on the Indian River, where she spent her formative years. After majoring in Music at Florida State University, she lived in Atlanta and was mentored by long time friend and colleague of Ramsey Lewis, jazz musician Paul Mitchell.
With longtime writing partner Mary Ann Kennedy, Rose has been nominated for two GRAMMY Awards and has won praise for her powerful alliance with Mary Ann as the acclaimed duo Kennedy Rose. The twosome won the ear of rock star Sting and recorded two CDs for his private label Pangaea Records, a label he founded for “uncategorizable music”. As an added treat, they were asked to open for him on one of his World Tours. As special guests of Emmylou Harris, Kennedy Rose also performed twice for President Bill Clinton and First Lady Hillary Clinton, and later at the Nobel Peace Prize Presentation in Oslo, Norway.
For the better part of 2016, Kennedy & Rose reunited with Emmylou Harris to tour as an acoustic trio, spotlighting the duo and treating the crowds to their impressive 3-part blend with Harris.
