Musically she is known as “Venus…A Lady with A Song” A Lady born to sing…”Jazzing up the ABC’s as she would tell it”…You could always find her singing something. Her style is reminiscent of the unique and sophisticated sounds of Jill Scott, Regina Bell, Billie Holiday, Lena Horne, Cassandra Wilson, Phyllis Hyman, and Nancy Wilson.
Ms Crute’ began singing in the church at a young age and has traveled with several choirs ministering through song. She belonged to a professional gospel choir called Kergyma which became a profound sound in the gospel arena recording two CD’s before the group disbanded.

Introduction to Voice Over Workshops
Venus has worked with us at Sound Imagination on numerous spots. She’s always convincing, with a great sound and takes direction very well. Not to mention she’s always a pleasure to work with!
Venus has voiced a couple of commercials for us . She does a great job! Was very professional to work with and best of all… We loved her!
Venus is one of the of the most gifted voices in media. Her voice was one of the key ingredients in bringing 98.7 Kiss to life in the 2000’s and I have no doubt she can help take any media brand to the next level today.
