nown as the “Songbird” from south Atlanta, Sylvia Camille, an original Georgia Peach, is a singer, actress, and host.
As a newborn, Sylvia Camille’s mother recalls her singing in the crib. From there, her love for music has evolved into a passion that she is poised to share with the world. Her singing ability was discovered in church when the children’s choir director, Mrs. Eloise Dukes, asked her to sing the lead to “I’m Still Holding On.” That experience sparked her interest in singing. Her acting was ignited at Benjamin E. Mayes High School when Mr. Tommy Ross, her choir director over the Drama Club, asked her to perform in Purlie and West Side Story.
Since that time, she has performed throughout the United States. To date, Sylvia Camille has many memorable accomplishments in the music sector: Third Place Vocalist at the Adult Vocal Competition in Columbus, Georgia ’00, Best Vocalist ’07 in a Theatrical Play (The Journey), the April “Just Keep It Clean” Talent Competition 2009, Runner Up to the Canton Jones “Just Keep It Clean” finals, and being named the 2010 Atlanta Gospel Fest American Idol Winner.
