Whether it's a slow ballad, a jazz standard, or a heart-pounding rhythm & blues, Yvonne Washington puts her heart into her music as one of the top female vocalists in Southeast Texas. Enticing with her rich, dynamic vocals, she's as much at home at a small piano bar as when she performs onstage before thousands.

Yvonne Washington and The Mix can transform any occasion into a night of supreme entertainment, whether it's a private party or a large concert. Her refreshing approach appeals to listeners of all ages.
