Felicia Michele Collins is the only member of the CBS Orchestra who has performed solely on the LATE SHOW. She joined the CBS Orchestra on August 30, 1993, on its premiere broadcast. Aside from being a versatile guitarist, she is also known for her extraordinary vocal skills. She has recorded with such artists as Billy Bob Thornton, Whitney Houston, George Clinton and P-Funk, Cyndi Lauper and N'Dea Davenport. She recorded and toured the world many times with singer Al Jarreau as his lead guitarist and featured vocalist. During that time, she took several months off to form OUTLOUD with Nile Rodgers and Philippe Saisse and to record a CD with the same title. It was at the close of Cyndi Lauper's Hat Full of Stars tour in the summer of 1993 that Paul Shaffer called to ask Collins if she would be interested in joining the CBS Orchestra. Now, she and her band, Felicia Collins & The Life, are knocking 'em dead in live venues. Her latest CD, Strings Attached, features Willie Nelson, Valerie Simpson, and members of the CBS Orchestra.
