Biography

Singer, Composer, Teacher and Workshop Facilitator

In the past year, Anna was the feature performer at the World Kindness Concert in Vancouver and at the opening VIP gala for Deepak Chopra’s presentation in Edmonton. She sang in her regular appearance for the Express Yourself courses across western Canada, Anna has written the songs and music for – and recorded – her fourth CD, The Doorway. Clearly, Anna has many strings to her bow!

There comes a time when one’s life meets one’s purpose. For Anna, that time came when all roads led her to the mystical love poetry and wisdom of Rumi and Hafiz, Sufi poets from the 13th and 14th centuries. Shaded with Jazz, Celtic and Middle Eastern influences, the inspirational songs on The Doorway CD weave together the many genres that have colored Anna’s life thus far.

Edmonton Journal’s Roger Levesque comments,

“Beaumont’s commitment comes through in some of her best singing ever. anna’s focus on themes of spirituality embodies a real search for truth and ancient wisdom that seserves an audience, whether you’re a Rumi fan or not.”

 

The Journey

An accomplished jazz and pop singer for over 20 years, Anna’s performances have taken her as far away as China, Germany, Finland, Britain, and the United States, in addition to her countless performances in Canada. Mary Wilson of the Supremes, with whom Anna spent much time touring and performing in the musical “Beehive” says “She sings like a bird, soaring high and angelic…truly one of the great voices of this decade.”

Anna’s recording journey began in 1992 after winning 96K-Lite’s Star Trax Competition and releasing Rise Above, followed by her first full-length CD of original material, Promise My Heart, in 2000.

Sandra Sperounes from the Edmonton Journal said,

“On Promise My Heart, the local songstress, previously noted for her jazz styling, finds herself crossing over into pop territory with radio friendly, uplifting songs. Fans of Celine Dion and Sarah McLachlan should love this album – and maybe grow to admire Beaumont even more.”

With support from local radio station Magic 99, Under the Covers was released in 2006. Anna’s musical recordings show an evolution of the girl into the woman and the singer into an emotionally articulate songwriter, where she has found her own, original voice in diverse musical styles and genres.

Senator Tommy Banks says,

“Experience a singer’s singer…experience Anna.”

Express Yourself

Anna’s other passion is teaching her Express Yourself classes; workshops in finding freedom and release through singing. Students benefit from her many years of voice training and her experience as an Integrative Body Psychotherapist. Anna builds bridges and opens doorways for people to enter their deep emotional realms to discover and express their creativity.

Michele, Sunshine Coast, B.C. says,

“Your sharing of spirit, music and presence created a deep feeling of inspiration, wonder, and joy for me. The time spent met my needs for authenticity, connection and true communion.”

Anna’s teacher and mentor in England, Chloe Goodchild, is the creator and facilitator of “The Naked Voice.” She says this of Anna:

“Anna Beaumont is a courageous and inspiring adventurer of the soul through sound and song. Her beautiful far-reaching voice awakened by ancient love poetry, unearths and arouses a new language of longing and belonging. With “The Doorway” she soars the heavens and dives into the elemental depths of the one heart, calling you Home.”
