About Mary Cross 2NspireU

Mary…dubbed the Mother of Cool Smoke for her rich vocal tonalities that are reminiscent of the late Phyllis Linda Hyman. An instantly identifiable honey-toned mezzo-contralto sound with great range and an undeniably brilliant and magnetic stage presence, Mary’s alluring vocals, candor, honesty, humor and purity as an artist make her a rarity in this business.

Frontrunner wrote: “Mary is the kind of singer who takes hold of a song and enraptures her audience in the palm of her hands, as she delivers lyrics, phrases, melodies and harmonies in a way that only she can”.

Founded in September of 2016 by recording artist Mary Cross, 2NspireU is a NJ-based project known for their signature performance of multi-genres of music (Jazz, Classic Soul, R&B, Soft Rock, Gospel and more).

Mary, dubbed the Mother of Cool Smoke, has immediately identifiable contralto vocals described as sultry, smooth, and timeless in both presentation and delivery. Expect to hear the great music of Nina Simone, Phyllis Hyman, Nancy Wilson, Sarah Vaughn, Ella Fitzgerald, Burt Bacharach, Captain and Tenielle, Tony Bennett, Oleta Adams, Ray Charles, Nat King Cole, Whitney Houston, Alicia Keys, Beyonce, H.E.R., Lalah Hathaway, Ledisi, Lizz Wright, Norah Jones, CeCe Winans, and more during the band’s performance.



The group has provided entertainment for various events nationwide, including weddings, corporate, cocktail hours, charity galas, retirement parties, and graced the stages of The Kennedy Center, SOUTH Jazz Kitchen, Doubletree and Hilton Hotels, Wiggins Park, Berks Jazz Fest, Willingboro Jazz Fest Juneteenth events, Nicetown Festival, IDEA Performing Arts, Camden Aquarium and more.

Mary has shared the stage with renowned Jazz Pianist Marcus Johnson and Gerald Veasley, Danny Clay (Luther Vandross), Eban Brown (The Stylistics), William Wardlaw (Luther Relives) and a host of other well-known artists.
