After growing up singing in choirs and landing at the University of Texas for college, R&B/pop singer-songwriter Whitney McClain reached out to her uncle Marlon “The Magician” McClain, of the ‘70s funk/soul band Pleasure, to help her ease into the industry. One listen to her ultra-powerful, soulful voice and you’ll know exactly why her career is taking off like a rocket.
Her single “Top Spot” is an upbeat pop anthem for the ages with a valuable message: Forget about the haters, hold onto your dreams.
“People may sleep on your talent but with a little faith, hard work and God, all things are possible,” she says. She describes the music video as “a portrayal of the things that many others in the industry and I do to make it to the top: vocal lessons, dance rehearsals, personal training and the grand finale of the big show.”
Here’s a day in the life of Whitney McClain.
