Rachelle Ferrell began singing at age 6, which may have contributed to the development of her amazing six plus octave range. Her remarkable range also includes the ability to sing her highest notes in the “whistle register.” As a child, she also received classical training in violin and by her teen years she was playing piano at a professional level. While still a teen, she began performing professionally, accompanying herself on piano, singing both pop and jazz songs, and writing much of her material herself. Enrolled in Boston’s Berklee College of Music, she further developed her skills in singing, arrangement and songwriting. Besides her success as a jazz singer, Rachelle is also well respected in pop, R&B, gospel, and classical music in both the US and Japan. As an accomplished pianist, she has worked with Lou Rawls, Patti LaBelle, Vanessa Williams, and the late, great George Duke. Known for her unique vocal stylings and no two performances being exactly alike, Rachelle’s live shows are always entertaining and high energy, with skillful improvisation delving far beyond her original recordings.

Recently remodeled with a bold design, the Hornblower Infinity matches the uniqueness of New York — and the Smooth Cruises! The open bow, covered sky deck and over-sized windows provide endless opportunities to enjoy the countless sites in NY Harbor as guests kick back with the best jazz artists in the business. Guests will enjoy the world’s finest contemporary jazz on climate controlled interior decks with multiple dance floors, and can take in the sights outdoors on spacious exterior sundecks.(Note: The yacht is handicapped accessible.)_
