Stephanie Benson (born Stephanie Akua Benson) is a phenomenal multi-talented musician, recording star and performer, whose repertoire includes contemporary music and classical jazz genres, and will soon encompass Gospel with the release of her latest work entitled "My Prayer".
Stephanie is an accomplished pianist and guitarist, and is known for her silky voice, elegant looks, sense of provocative fashion and flawless stage performances. While listening to her tracks, one can discern her keen sense of timing and appropriateness of lyrics and instrumentation.
Ms. Benson has collaborated with, written for and supported acts for such music industry notables as Stevie Wonder, Omar, Atomic Kitten, Barry White and many more. She is dearly loved by the Royal Family in the UK and has performed.
Stephanie is Ghanaian born and attended school in London after the death of her father. After years of success in the United Kingdom (UK), with PWL records and European tours in the 1990s, and having appeared on numerous West End shows, Ms. Benson, a devoted mother, took a hiatus from the music scene to raise her five children. As a matter of fact, one of her children has entered the music industry and recently achieved a few top 3 hits in the UK with her group.
Ms. Benson is also a philanthropist. So concerned about the music scene being accessible to girls, she opened a girls only (16 years or older) music school in Accra, Ghana – the BEPI Institute (at Manet Court on the Spintex Road) in November 2014 to expand the pool of female artists in the country. The school has a sound recording studio, rehearsal room and a dance studio. Stephanie also supports a cancer foundation called Pink for Africa (the African Breast Cancer Foundation).
Tragedy struck last year when she was involved in a car accident on the Spintex Road, Accra. The accident brought her near to death and led to her writing My Prayer as a song of gratitude to God for Stephanie just recently finished hosting the second leg of the Mercedes Benz African Fashion Festival in Ms. Benson is currently working on her new album and has completed 4 tracks which are available for Stephanie will embark on a world tour in 2016.
