She can still hear the sounds of Aretha Franklin, The Gap Band, or Earth, Wind, and Fire playing on the family radio. Maybe it was the sound of live horns blowing from the streets of New Orleans celebrating life and death, but music was birthed into her bones. LaToya “Toye” Forman started singing at the age of five serenading guests in her family’s living room with one her favorite songs, “Home,” by the great Stephanie Mills. She knew, she had to be part of the arts/music scene in some way. <br /> <br /> Toye graduated from Pebblebrook High School’s Performing Arts Magnet-Vocal Conservatory Program.

Toyecan be found singing with The Edwin Williams Experience Jazz Collective, local recording choirs including Crucified Music Ministry, Hya Praise, and GMWA-Atlanta Chapter to lending background vocals in Atlanta’s Symphony Hall.<br /> <br /> Not just a singer, Toye is blessed with the gift of acting.
