Judith Severloh-Hernandez is a professional singer, pianist, songwriter and voice instructor based in Houston, TX (USA).
Born in Germany the award winning musician majored in Jazz/Rock/Pop voice and piano at the University of Music and Drama in Hanover (GER). As the singer-songwriter ‘youdid’, she won the German Rock & Pop award as ‘best newcomer’ and ‘2nd best female singer’. She also released several CDs as youdid (2009 debut album who i am, 2013 EP Empty My Head, followed by the single Closer To The Edge in 2014).
In 2013 Judith moved to London (UK) to follow the roots of pop music and worked as a freelance musician and voice instructor. From there she started to tour across the globe as a pianist/vocalist in 5* Luxury Resorts, before she finally followed her love and heart to America. Since 2017 Judith is based in Houston, Texas, but she still travels regularly back to Europe to perform in Germany, the UK or anywhere, where her music is requested.
Judith is one of the most sought-after female singers, in part due to the fact that she is able to accompany herself on the piano. She is being booked solo, in smaller duo/trio lineups or with a full 8-piece band. Her sensitive and clear voice is music for the heart and soul, that’s why Judith is being booked a lot for weddings in all kinds of different settings, where she regularly lends another romantic highlight after the tying of the knot with songs like the love song “All Of Me” by John Legend” or “A Moment Like This” by Kelly Clarkson.
Yet Judith’s musical spectrum is widely spread. She is also being booked for champagne receptions, dinner music and vernissages with subtle background music (i.e. just piano and voice) or with a full-energy show, no matter if solo or with a full band for the whole evening.
