Sisaundra Lewis is an American singer, songwriter and producer from Haines City, Florida. She was a contestant on season 6 of the US series "The Voice" as a member of Blake Shelton's team.

Sisaundra started her career with Grammy and Oscar Award winner Peabo Bryson, who invited her to tour the world with him as a backing vocalist and his new duet partner. Her acquaintance with Mr. Bryson led to a worldwide tour with Grammy and Oscar Award winner, Celine Dion. She spent several years working with Ms. Dion as her backing vocalist, vocal director and choreographer.

Her powerful voice can be heard in national commercials for Folgers Coffee, Sprite, Slimfast, Doublemint Gum, Sears, Arby’s, Ziploc Bags, Coppertone, and Dr. Pepper. Her debut single on Global Records, “SHOUT”, hit the Billboard Hot Dance Club Charts its first week and immediately climbed to #1. Sisaundra also co-wrote and performs the tune “Emotional” on Grammy nominated and platinum recording artist, Najee’s, new contemporary jazz release titled My Point of View – which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Contemporary Jazz Chart.

Sisaundra Lewis is the featured Narrator of Oscar Nominated documentary, Sustaining Life. Her rich enrapturing voice guides us through the important messages of hope and survival present throughout the film. From the very beginning her unrivaled talent, and passion for helping others, made Sisaundra the perfect character to unite the creativity behind the film with the young viewers of our generation. Combining both a glorious vocal instrument and performance skills that are truly an amazing gift, she approaches her love for music with an incredible assurance.
