Mere words can only capture the refrain of her awesome talent. Maria Howell is much more. She is the ballad of beauty and elegance. The melodies flowing from the petite vocalist are truly amazing. While casting a spellbinding smile, she mesmerizes her captive audience with incredible harmonies and rhythms.
Howell’s signature film performance as the choir soloist in the movie “The Color Purple” was quoted by one critic as being “one of the film’s most stirring moments!” Her rendition of “God Is Trying to Tell You Something” was memorable for all who saw it, but the offerings of the all-grown-up Maria are truly unforgettable, eliciting more stirring moments, one after another.
As an actress, Maria has appeared alongside actress Regina King, as her best friend in Lifetime Television’s “Living Proof“, starring Harry Connick, Jr. More credits she adds to her resume are, “Drop Dead Diva” (Lifetime), “Past Life” (FOX), “Vampire Diaries” (CW) and “The Blind Side“, starring Sandra Bullock, “Detroit 1-8-7” (ABC), “The Game” (BET). “Field of Vision” (NBC), “Single Ladies” (VH1), “Necessary Roughness” (USA). “What To Expect When You’re Expecting“, starring Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Chris Rock and Dennis Quaid. She also appeared in the Hallmark Hall of Fame’s TV release of “Firelight“, starring Cuba Gooding, Jr., where she plays the part of Mrs. Easle. She plays the role of “Grace” in Eric Kripke, J.J.
