Biography: 

Dr. Elizabeth A. Escoto currently resides outside of Chicago with her husband. She was a musical child prodigy at age seven performing in choirs and churches within the United States, and has been a musician all her life. She plays piano, organ, guitar, harp and violin. She is currently an Organist and Choir Director for the "West Pullman Church of God” in Chicago. Liz has also hosted her own show on WYCA out of Chicago and is still on air.

She has traveled all over the country training and raising funds for musical trios. One of them, Pearls of Melody, raised money for the music department of Bay Ridge College in Texas. The recorded ‘45’ of the trio is now considered a classic. Another singing group she trained called Sacred Jewels, toured and sold LP's across the country receiving a free tour of the White House. Currently, Liz will be performing in the Community Restoration Choir “ALL GOD'S CHILDREN”, touring in Russia, Spain, England and many other countries (France/Germany/Mexico/Latin America). They tour mostly in the summer, and sing locally in churches welcoming all races and creeds. She will be playing violin duets with their local violinists, and might get to accompany on the piano as well.

She was also awarded “International Poet of the Year” and was on the same marquee as Tony Orlando & Dawn at the Coronado Inn in Florida. The following year she was on the same marquee as Florence Henderson of TV’s “Eight is Enough” and won for her poem called Katrina, a poem depicting the horrible hurricane that tore up New Orleans and other places. She now shares her poems mostly before Church audiences.
