Josephine Howell was born on the Southside of Chicago, IL. She made Seattle her home in 1993. She has always been fascinated with music and the arts, captivating family and friends at an early age with her amazing gifts. Although she never studied music professionally, “Josie” possesses a God-given endowment for the arts. She first explored her interest and abilities for singing in the children’s choir at The True Right M. B. Church. Her range of talent extends from singing, dancing and acting to the very production and direction of the arts. Her performances convey passion, inspiration and melodious sound that is birthed from a life of challenging struggles and immense victories. Because Josephine recognizes the importance of each hand, helping another, she regularly participates in local community events, performing, entertaining, but also sometimes speaking very candidly to those who need to hear from someone who’s walked in their shoes. She has also committed her time and talent to speak to our government about the plight of the homeless, a place she once knew firsthand. She believes that is important not just to entertain, but to use her gifts, her singing, her speaking, her acting, her directing to better the community, city and country in which she lives. Josie attributes her success to her mother, Alberta Tucker, for instilling in her a spiritual foundation based on a personal relationship with God. But she recognizes God as her ultimate reason for her gifts, her will and her determination.
