Having won a voice scholarship in high school and in college and performing solo at the Lyric Opera House as a result, Josie went on to use her multi-range voice not only in the classical idiom, but in pop and jazz styles as well.
She has sung back-up for many diverse artists including: Celine Dion, Yolanda Adams, Richard Marx, Enrique Iglesias, Michael Bolton, Ben Vereen, Angie Bofill, Della Reese, Vic Damone, Ann Jillian, Carol Channing, Nancy Wilson, the Chi-Lites, Dennis De Young (Styx), Tyrone Davis and Walter Jackson. Josie can also be heard on the re-recorded sequences of the restored Orson Welles classic film, “Othello”.
In 2006, she was the proud recipient of the Da Vinci award for Performing Arts given each year by the Order Sons of Italy national organization.
Josie continues to keep busy singing in the studio, live with orchestras for various concerts, club dates and events, and cantoring at the Shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii in Chicago, and church functions and services in the surrounding area.
Her latest CD is called "Taylor Street" and can be purchased at www.josiefalbo.net.
