Erica McGee

A Tennessee native, Erica's professional vocal experience began at Dollywood Entertainment Park in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and singing with the female trio Savannah in Nashville, Tennessee.

Erica has performed throughout the Southeast as Patsy Cline in "A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline," “Smokey Joe’s Café,” and her famed review “Decade Diva.” In North Carolina, Erica has performed with Carolina Voices, Actor’s Theatre of Charlotte, Charlotte Rep, and Charlotte Children’s Theater. Over the years, she has appeared at such venues as Western Carolina University, Halifax University, The Cole Center at Richmond Community College, Lees McRae University, The Tennessee Theatre, and the Pinehurst Resort.

Erica is also a proud graduate of the University of Tennessee and recently received her MFA from Mount Saint Mary’s University in Los Angeles, California.

As a teacher, Erica was one of the founders of Carolina Kids Voices, directing their choral camps and performances for years; she was also a teaching artist with the Blumenthal Performing Arts Educational Institute. Erica also ran her own performing arts company in elementary education called Playground Players, offering musical theater instruction and choral performance summer camps. She was also the writer and director of children’s holiday programs at Myers Park Baptist Church.

Erica is also a professional film, commercial, and voice over actress with appearances in spots for the NC Lottery, Harris Teeter, Food City, Lowes, and the Bristol Motor Speedway. She was also the voice for the NASCAR series “Driven to Win” on the Biography Channel and has voiced numerous national and regional radio spots. One of her favorite roles was in the film “Miracles from Heaven” alongside Jennifer Garner.

Erica has written music for many years but has been thrilled to present her original musical “Girls Raised in the South-GRITS: The Musical,” based on Deborah Ford’s book “GRITS: Friends Are Forevah.” This show is very special to her, as it is a very personal project sharing her songs, written word, and family photos with the audience to best capture the essence of the South as seen through her eyes. She has appeared with "Girls Raised in the South-GRITS: The Musical" in NC, SC, GA, FL, AL, VA, and TN. She has also written a companion piece to this production called "Cinnamon GRITS: Christmas in the South." Her latest offering is a children’s musical called “Cindabella: A Southern Fried Fairy Tale,” and she is currently in workshops for her new show “DeWitched.”

Erica loves writing and performing but has a special place in her heart for working with children in many different genres and helping them grow as artists and performers.
