To Sweet Nancy with Love is Rabun’s new signature tribute to dramatic pop song stylist and Grammy Award winning jazz artist Nancy Wilson  It pays homage to Wilson and her prolific discography of standards, pop, jazz, blues, Broadway show tunes, adult contemporary, R&B and soul-tinged music.

Backed by a flawless rhythm section, in To Sweet Nancy with Love, Rabun takes audience members through Wilson’s catalogue from the late 1950s all the way through the 90s.  The show even includes a cabaret section that features musicians and audience members as Rabun conveys stories behind standards such as  “Dearly Beloved,” “Guess Who I Saw Today,” and the Grammy winning, “How Glad I Am” among other classics of song stylist, Nancy Wilson.


Yolanda is a fierce songstress and North Carolina based recording artist who also is versatile enough to handle all styles of music, although she favors jazz and soul. Rabun exploded onto the jazz scene first on Stanley Baird’s 2007 Traffic Jam hit single, “I Want 2 Love You,” and, in 2011, she released her debut CD project, “So Real,” on which she co-wrote several songs, including the title song. In 2012, Rabun infused Soul, R&B, Gospel, Folk, Smooth and Traditional Jazz on her sophomore solo album, “Christmastime,” and followed in 2013 with the Adult Contemporary single, “Hold on To Your Dreams.”

To her credit by 2016, Yolanda picked up devoted fans and musical admirers from her appearances around the world at Atlanta’s Jazz Festival, D.C.’s acclaimed Blues Alley Jazz, and Hollywood’s Catalina Jazz to help successfully fund her third album, Yolanda.

For the Yolanda project, which made appearances on several charts, including the UK Soul Top 30 chart for 11+ weeks and a Billboard Most Added List for Smooth Jazz, Yolanda Rabun effortlessly shifts between eras and genres to produce a mix of classics, standards and originals. The Yolanda album, includes songs that showcase Yolanda Rabun’s unique ability to interpret diverse material and deliver meaningful musical stories (whether new or told before) “With her passionate, yet precision-filled pipes and expert arrangements, Yolanda Rabun has nowhere to go but up.” – Soul Tracks YOLANDA

This rich-voice chanteuse headlines events with her own band for large corporate events and even sold out specialty shows but Yolanda Rabun has also opened for and sung with such iconic artists as Jennifer Holiday, Howard Hewitt, Ron Isley and the Isley Brothers, R&B singer KEM and the world-renowned iconic drummer, Sheila E. Yolanda Rabun has also performed with the NC Opera, the Durham Symphony Orchestra and appeared on a number of TV and radio programs.
