ardina lockhart


We all remember the first time seeing that artist who would later become a household name—the feeling that we were in on a secret the rest of the world was waiting to hear.  Ardina Lockhart gives lucky audiences those feelings. Whether lighting up the stage with jazz standards, pop classics, or timeless soulful grooves, her unmistakable sound leaves you wanting more.  

Ardina has shared the stage with such notable entertainers as saxophonist Shelley Carrol (Shelley Carrol Quintet), Bobby Falk Quintet, pianist Roger Boykin, Cuvee, Natural Change, Signature Band, New Art 6, Fingerprints, and others.   

Along with  Eryah Badu and Norah Jones, Ardina is an alum of Dallas’ award-winning Arts Magnet at Booker T. Washington High School where she lent her voice to the renowned jazz ensemble, the Lab Singers.  

After graduating from Texas Woman's University, in Denton, Ardina’s star continued to shine brightly in North Texas as she belted out the National Anthem at several sold-out Dallas Mavericks games  and performed live on “Good Day Dallas” and “Good Morning Texas.”  She cites garnering a Best Actress honor  portraying one of her favorite artists, Nina Simone, in a stage production at the  historic Jubilee Theatre in Fort Worth, TX,  as one of the many high points in her career. 

With Nancy Wilson, John Legend, Jill Scott, and  Kathleen Battle as musical influences, Ardina has developed a unique sound that is finding its way into the hearts of audiences all over the country and beyond, and her background in dance takes her vibrant and engaging stage presence to another level.  

Ardina feels at home on every stage, stateside and abroad, and describes sharing her gift with others as “pure joy.”  Her goal is to offer more than a show but an experience that her audiences will remember long after leaving the venue.  

Ardina’s sultry vocals can be heard on  “DNA”  by Fingerprints, and “I Heard That” by Shelley Carrol and Friends, and she will soon be releasing her debut recording.   

Don’t wait too long to have your spirit and soul lifted by this sensational rising star.  Catch her when you can! 

Currently Ardina has her sights set on even higher goals and is in production of her debut CD release. Soon, many will know of this unique voice and personality. It may sound new, but she is no overnight sensation.
