Singer, Dancer, Actress Extraordinaire. An immensely talented vocalist who can sing Classic Soul ballads as well as legitimate Broadway tunes with the greatest of ease. As the daughter of Jazz trumpeter and bandleader Bobby Booker, Alyson is legitimately rooted in Jazz and firmly embraces the Blues. She realized major success with her smash hit single (“Just Call My Name”) from her debut album “Raw” which spent an amazing 67 weeks on the Billboard charts and was only matched in popularity by Madonna’s album “Like a Prayer.”
As a vibrant and chameleon-esque performer, Alyson Williams has also appeared in several stage plays which include the 25th anniversary of “The Wiz” and “My Brother Marvin” The Marvin Gaye Story. Her Broadway appearances include the 2002 revival of “One Mo’ Time” and “Rollin On The Toba.” She received one of the greatest thrills of a life time when she was asked to star in a role that portrayed one of her musical mentors, R&B/Jazz legend Phyllis Hyman in the play “Thank God the Beat Goes On” starring the legendary Whispers. Alyson is also currently performing a tribute to Ms. Hyman in her ever-popular nightclub act.

It has been a star studded trip and a very exciting journey that has only just begun.
