" Welcome To Our Jacksonville Vocal Lessons Website "
I’m called, “Miss Vicki Lee” “Alma’s Claim To Fame”. I have many more songs to be sung and there are still many more pages to be written. Having recently faced some of the toughest times of my life, I’m still in the studio and out there pleasing my fans who are very special to me. Music is in my blood and I was born to sing.
As my idol Loretta Lynn say‘s, "I haven't changed with the times, the times have followed me".
Every song I sing and anything I do I put my own sound and twist to it. I don’t want to sound like everybody else. I want to be me and have people recognize me for me and not everyone else who are sounding alike today, I’ve lived thru good times and hard times. It’s these hard times that are making me stronger because I know this is what my loved ones would have wanted.
All I've done is try to help others, starting with my family. I never did this just for myself. I thank God that I am still able to tell my stories and sing my songs. That I can still make people happy thru my music.
Vicki Lee was born Patsy Willene Tuten in Alma, Ga. on May 6, 1950. The third of seven children born to Loyd and Thelma Tuten. Patsy was always told she had wiggle worms in her even before she was born.
With her parents blessing and encouragement, young Patsy soon found her voice and a place where it would be appreciated. During the first few years of her life, she sang in churches and Radio Shows. As she got a little older she started performing at a variety of local contests. Patsy’s mama and daddy gave her a small organ and she would put it under her arm and go to Church. From there she started playing the piano where she soon found out that the faster she played the faster they danced in the spirit.
At age fifteen, Patsy married and had three beautiful children Rick, Rich and Tina. Her second marriage is where she started picking up the guitar and performing anywhere she could. Within the first few months of marriage things went wrong, so she divorced and started performing again in local clubs and contests where she would go in with just her guitar and voice and she would always win. It was also at this time that she was given the stage name of Vicki Lee by her sister Louise. It was around this time that she met her mentor and idol Miss Loretta Lynn. It wasn’t long until she married again and had another beautiful baby boy named John. Vicki was livin’ in Tampa, Fl and this is where she started fronting shows for many of the country stars that we know so well. This was the highlight of Vicki Lee’s career. Vicki sang publicly and shared her passion for music with her family singing with her daddy, and to her family regularly. By the time she was twenty two Patsy had four children.
Inspired by their daughters abilities Patsy’s parents and family spent many hours listening to her sing. Patsy taught herself to play many instruments. In no time Vicki Lee was making a name and place for herself in the world of Country Music. She was performing alone and with local bands.
Vicki Lee’s break came when she entered contests and won everything from The Country Showdown, Wrangler Star Search, Sparkey’s Country Tavern where she won the title of Miss Country Music, KFC Songwriting Contest and many others. Vicki started performing on local television shows, from there to the Ralph Emery Show and fronting many of our Country Stars. She performed in Myrtle Beach for many years.
It didn't take long for the State of Georgia to grab on to the rising star. Vicki was honored several times at the Georgia State Capital with Resolutions Commending her for her many works for the state of Georgia.
Vicki Lee has her own sound and it’s always been said she could capture an audience and hold them in the palm of her hand.
In the mid 1990’s, Vicki put pen to paper, writing her first book "We’ve Got Country Cookin’ At Vicki’s House Tonight”. It started out as a cookbook but later turned into memories and stories of her life in Country Music. Then in 2010, Vicki’s book was finished and her autobiography is in the making.
Because of Vicki Lee’s immense popularity and as a result of well attended shows she was elected to the Georgia Music Hall of Fame. She still loves her audiences and always likes to focus her efforts on performances and making people happy.
Vicki Lee sang her way into the hearts of the world. She has a distinctive throaty style and rich vocal presence. Maybe what sets her apart from other girl singers is her onstage performances. For Vicki, the world is her stage. She has a “get down to basics” approach to life in general and her career in particular. She continues to do what she does best - sing.
Vicki maintains a vast army of fans, and keeps adding new fans. She also has the uncanny ability to hold an audience spellbound.
