Jill Burke (Group & Private Singing) was born and raised in Los Angeles. She always imagined herself earning a living by being in show business. These thoughts and visions had begun at a very early age, and she made it a reality: Jill is a full-time performer and instructor! She attended Fullerton College as a theater major, but spent most of her time in the music department - mainly singing with their vocal jazz group. She tried out her luck in the pageant world, becoming Miss Anaheim 1991, and moving on to compete in the Miss California Pageant.

Her first professional work began performing for the Walt Disney Company, portraying such characters as Princess Jasmine, Ariel, and Pocahontas. Then she was drawn to the seas - she performed onstage while traveling all around the world, mostly with Norwegian Cruise Line, and notably opening their production of Andrew Lloyd-Webber's "Music Of The Night." Her theater credits include: Fiddler on the Roof, George M!, The Hot Mikado, and two productions of Songs For A New World, one of which she was nominated for a L.A. Ovation Award. Recently, she traveled to Scotland to perform in the well-known Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Jill has had the privilege of singing with and for such stars as Tony-award winning Jason Robert Brown, Richard Carpenter, and her most memorable musical influence...Johnny Mathis.

Here at home, she frequently can be seen singing our National Anthem for teams such as the Anaheim Angels, Anaheim Ducks, and the L.A. Lakers. Currently, she sings with several different projects: a musical revue entitled "Hollywood Revisited", the a cappella group Vybration, and the monthly L.A. cabaret show called Upright Cabaret. She also continues to sing for audiences while working with bands for corporate/private events.

She is now focusing more towards a film/TV/commercial career, and is in pre-production for her solo CD!
