Thomason is a vocalist who performs with the Paul Winter Consort and other performers. Her vocal talent began to emerge as she grew up singing in church. Jazz, pop, and R&B later followed. Her winning performance at the world-famous Apollo Theatre was a stimulus for her to love the stage.
Theresa has had a succession of sold-out concerts in the U.S. and over 170 cities in Europe, where she spent 17 years headlining in a theatrical concert she wrote and produced.
Her career has spanned almost three decades of performances and recordings with seven-time Grammy Award winner Paul Winter, and she remains a featured artist with Winter’s Consort, performing regularly at the world-renowned annual Winter Solstice Celebration and Earth Mass at New York’s celebrated Cathedral of Saint John the Divine. Several of these performances have aired on NBC and PBS.
Thomason appeared on Broadway in the musical, Hot Feet, featuring the music of Earth Wind and Fire, directed by Maurice Hines. Returning to the Apollo Theatre in 2012, Thomason performed for the Harlem Jazz Shrines “Jazz al a Carte” with Wycliffe Gordon, Savion Grover, and Maurice Hines. The Wall Street Journal named this event “the best Jazz event.”
In 2023, she worked with Dr. Henry Louis Gates Jr. to tour France in a musical presentation of his book “The Black Church.” In addition, she is participating in the anniversary celebration this year of WPKN Radio. She has been privileged to work with artists in diverse genres as she continues to tour the U.S., Europe, New Zealand and the Caribbean using her gifts to serve a greater purpose.
She has done performances with and for Stevie Wonder, The Dalai Lama, Renato Braz, Ivan Lins, Noel Paul Stookey, Jamey Haddad, Eugene Friesen, Glen Velez, Valerie Simpson and more.
