Sarah Angelina Vela is a singer-songwriter and performer based out of Oakland, California. Her sound offers a laidback, soulful and captivating effect. Vela has experience with top-line songwriting, background singing, and front-line performing. Prior to Berklee, Vela could be seen on NBC's the Sing-Off where her group Vocal Rush reached the top three. No stranger to the stage, Vela has spent her life performing in musical theater, R&B, and pop. Vela is currently one of three members of the Boston-based band Fates and is working on her own music as well.

Kenyan singer Lisa Akech Oduor-Noah was quickly introduced to music through her sibling’s playing of varied styles of music, from R&B and blues to Lingala. Currently, she is studying at Berklee College of Music where she intends to complete a bachelor's degree in music education with a minor in either psychology or songwriting. She hopes that, through her music, she can tell stories of hope and love and be an agent of healing and restoration to a world she feels is in desperate need of love and light.
