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.”
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.”
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.”
