Barely 2 weeks after setting foot on American soil for the 1st time, Roberta surprised the Jazz world by finishing 3rd in the 1998 Thelonious Monk Vocal Competition. With this recognition as a springboard, and the assistance of some of the Greatest musicians of the world, who immediately appreciated her talent, and invited her to perform with them, she quickly became a fixture on the International Jazz circuit, appearing in Major Concert Halls, Festivals, & Clubs around the globe.( Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, Hollywood Bowl etc.) As a result Roberta has had the good fortune to appear in concert & record with such Giants as Dave Brubeck, James Moody, Hank Jones, Clark Terry, Herbie Hancock and many more!
