Rachel Kerr - Lead Vocals,
Rachel is a true entertainer. With and extensive background in dance, she became one of the youngest dancers in the NFL dance squads just months after her 18th birthday. An agent found her the very next year singing at a charity event for Children's Hospital. 6 months later she was on planes, trains, and automobiles traveling the country and the world being paid for something she loved to do. With too many musical acts, speaking engagements, and other performances to name, be confident she has what it takes to entertain the crowd. Every performance is delivered with pride and a "no excuses" mentality. Rachel had retired from the spotlight for a time when Expertease came calling. It was a "no brainer" and a perfect fit. She is looking forward to getting to know all the Expertease fans both new and old!
