Pamela Vincent was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, home of the Motown sound.  She began her professional singing career at the age of 14, recruited by her sister Joyce Vincent and Telma Hopkins as the 3rd voice of the popular back-up trio.  They became one of the most sought after back up groups in and around the Detroit area eventually becoming the in house background singers for famed ex-Motown songwriters Holland-Dozier-Holland.  Their voices were heard on mega hits like  "Band of Gold" (Freda Payne) and "Give Me Just A Little More Time" (Chairman of the Board) as well as all the other artists out to the H-D-H studio....Invictus Records.

Joyce and Telma moved on to record and travel on the road with Tony Orlando as "Dawn", but still keeping the same familiar sound of the trio they continued to use Pam on all of the studio recordings.  She did the majority of the background vocal arrangements on all of the albums.  

Pam eventually had to find 2 other singers to continue to fulfil the high demand for background singers in Detroit.  She was introduced to  Donnna Davis and Cynthia Douglas.  Together they formed the group "BRANDYE".  They are best known for their background vocals and arrangements on mega hits "Disco Lady" (Johnny Taylor), "P-Funk" (Parliament/Funkadelic), "You don't to be a star" (Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis,Jr.), "Still the same" (Bob Seger) and "Too Funky in here" (James Brown) just to name a few.  BRANDYE released an album of their own, "Crossover to Brandye".

Continuing with her whirlwind career, Pam has worked with many artists including Aretha Franklin, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Luther Vandross, Peabo Bryson, Former Ladies of the Supremes......and the list goes on and on.

-The "Vincent Sisters" will always be an entity as they still do lots of studio sessions together as well as live performances. 

Pam recently reunited with original "Brandye" members for a sold out performance at the Southpoint Hotel in Las Vegas.  The group is currently in the studio recording new music. 

Pam also records and performs live with keyboardist Herman "Hollywood" Dawkins as "The Dynamic Duo".  A new album is forthcoming.

Pam is a private vocal coach at LaVoix studio in Studio City, CA. as well as a voice teacher for the Los Angeles Unified School District Gifted and Talented program.

Pam was inducted into the Vocal Group hall of fame in 2008 and the Hit Parade hall of fame in 2011.

Pam's career in music and music production continues to soar keeping her very busy spreading musical joy by sharing her musical talents far and wide.
