Growing up in war-torn Monrovia, Liberia, Zelma Davis dreamed of becoming a singer and dancer. At the age of 12, Zelma and her mother escaped West Africa and came to America in search of a better life. Having always been interested in singing and dancing, Zelma enrolled in NYC's LaGuardia High School of Music & Art, where she began to rigorously hone her craft.
At the age of 19, Zelma auditioned for C+C Music Factory. Zelma went on to become the lead vocalist for the mega-hit machine and with few exceptions, Zelma is the voice on every major hit by C+C Music Factory, including Here We Go (Let's Rock & Roll), Just A Touch of Love, Things That Make You Go Hmmm…, I Found Love, and Live Happy.
As the lead vocalist for C+C Music Factory, Zelma performed extensively on five continents, in over 26 countries, and eight territories. The group was recognized with a Grammy Award nomination, five American Music Awards, five Billboard Music Awards, two MTV Video Music Awards, and several European, Japanese and Australian Music Awards.
Zelma co-wrote the single, I'm Calling (Say It Loud), which was featured on the soundtrack of the award-winning documentary When We Were Kings. Zelma’s voice is also featured in the film Sister Act and in international advertising campaigns for Coca-Cola and Nicole Miller. Zelma’s television appearances include The Oprah Winfrey Show, Live! with Regis and Kathie Lee, Saturday Night Live, The Arsenio Hall Show, Soul Train and Blossom.
