Carol Pemberton MBE

As the founder of Black Voices, Carol has used her diverse musical experience in developing the group's artistic mission. Like many of the singers she looks up to, her first musical experiences were nurtured in the black church where her father was the minister. Born into a very musical family, Carol played cello, piano and a variety of wind instruments, playing her saxophone being her latest hobby. However, she proudly admits her weakness for the beauty of the human voice. Her happiest times? "When Black Voices speaks through its music to any audience, and you see and feel the messages being received."

Carol was awarded a MBE in 2014 for her services to music.
