ALTO I AND II/TENOR
Meet Tamara Times, who is the Granddaughter of Louis Bedford Sr., the leader of The Mighty Blytheville Aires from Blytheville, Arkansas, not to mention her Mother, Father, and various family members are Gospel singers as well. It's inevitable that she'd become enthralled with not just singing, but singing with quartet-style a cappella harmony. She's sung at Graceland and World Overcomers in Memphis, Tennessee, and was also a member of Tops in Blue, a choral ensemble for active-duty members of the United States Air Force. Having the aspiration to teach and learn, she obtained a Bachelor of Education-Music Education, with an emphasis in Vocal Performance degree from the University of Missouri-Saint Louis in Saint Louis, Missouri in 2016, to properly teach music to those with talent and the desire to learn.
Tamara started Poetic Sounds in 2009 to provide a contrasting sound of live performances in the St. Louis metropolitan area. They've lent their talents to the likes of Fox Channel 2, KMOV Channel 4, KSDK Channel 5, The Cathedral Basillica, Powell Symphony Hall, and various churches in Illinois and Missouri.
