Gino Walker began singing at an early age. Born in St. Louis, Missouri she was surrounded by blues, gospel and jazz. Her spirit and voice is the reflection of "SPIRITFUNKnMETALBLUES." A voice that can belt it out or lullaby a baby. Gino’s mission is to “ Lift and Shift the Light of Consciousness All over the World through Inspired Song & Word.” Her workshop “I AM Diversity” is one of the many ways she builds community along with her u-tube channel, Pass the Mic, where she showcases diverse talent from around the world. Feeling the call to spread the gift of song in her spiritual community Gino toured in 2011 “Expanding Vision tour” from the West Coast to the East Coast and into Canada. A former member of the world renowned Agape International Choir under the direction of Rickie Byars Beckwith. As lead vocalist Gino performed at the Ford Theater, the Getty Museum, Hollywood Bowl and The United Nations Peace Conference. Gino has worked with many talented people, Ray Charles at the Temecula Film Festival, The Drifters & Ike Turner at the Long Beach Old School Jam, Mary Wilson, Brenda Russell just to mention a few, with appearances on the Keenan Ivory Wayans Show and Howard Stern Show.
