tonda solomon, coach
Tonda Solomon has been finding songs since before she can remember. Her performances began at four and she has been in front of crowds ever since. She and her husband of 33 years, Keith, have led worship all over the world. She has performed everything from big band to classical to country. In fact, the only genre she hasn’t performed is rap, something her four grown sons would have forbidden had she ever been tempted to try. A lover of travel and books, she is now working on her own book for publishing. She is thrilled to be a part of Foster Carols and to have had this opportunity to volunteer as a vocal coach mentor.
