"Where can a voice take you? If the singer happens to be Ruby Collins, the answer is simply: anywhere! Blessed with a rare musical ability and a gift for connecting with an audience, Ruby has touched countless converts throughout her storied career both personally, professionally, and as an entertainer.
Billboard said, "Her forte is a smooth, jazzy pop/amalgam dazzlingly reminiscent of early Roberta Flack." The Gospel Times said, "She sings from the heart with plenty of soul."
Ruby began singing in her home church in Brooklyn, NY. Soon she developed enough confidence and began singing at talent shows, such as, “Showtime at the Apollo” winning over the audience with her soulful voice and charisma.
In 1994 when her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer Ruby joined the New York City police department to help take care of her mom and three brothers financially. Although her dream was diverted temporarily her talent could not be hidden behind the blue uniform for long. With less than six months on the job Ruby was asked to sing at her police graduation for audience of over five thousand people. The Daily News said, "Ruby Collins, delivered a moving and soulful rendition of the national anthem."
The Police department knew that they had someone special. Ruby Collins became the voice that represented the police department throughout New York City. In 1995 Ruby was chosen to sing at the White House in Washington D.C. for the National Peace Officers Memorial Day which was attended by President Bill Clinton and sharing the stage with Grammy Winner singer Mariah Carey. Ruby has also performed on the "Rosie O'Donnell Show," "Life Time Television" and "New Attitude" on the "Oprah's Oxygen Media."
This Police officer, turn teacher, singer/musician and songwriter is eagerly looking forward to the next chapter in her life. "I can’t wait to tour the world and do what I was born to sing!!!," says Ruby. Ruby Collins has the highest hopes and the worthiest of ambitions. The times may be uncertain, but music has always had the power to heal and bring joy, especially in the hands of a brilliant singer like Ruby Collins."
