SIGNATURE LIFE PROJECT

Welcome to my home, my domain, my thoughts, my lessons, my heart and my spirit. I didn’t want this to be another artist site where I say a whole bunch of stuff that I’m doing and sell you music but I want it to be a space where we learn. I want to take you on my life journey and I want us to laugh, praise, cry, be angry, and philosophy together. We all have signature lives, we’ve all been put on this earth to make specific mark on it, it’s up to us to determine how we want to sign our names on the line

About Me

MEET CHANTEL

At the age of 14, Ms. Hampton made the decision to become a professional musician, and trained daily with her father, LeRoix Hampton III, who is a record producer and musician.  She began leading worship services at her church which gave her the opportunity to not only sing every Sunday morning infront of hundreds, but allowed her to lead and teach adults how to sing and execute harmonies. In addition to her singing, her father was adamant about her being well-rounded musician and professional, so she learned how to perform, connect to her audience, audition, write songs, record in the studio, run a studio and speak with industry producers and executives etc. Because of this in-depth training, at the age of 16 Chantel received a full 4-year scholarship to Berklee College of Music. By 17, she had become a two-time winner of The Berklee College of Music National Songwriting Competition. When she turned 18, Ms. Hampton was writing, arranging, vocal producing and engineering for national and international projects and record labels. She was considered to be an ambassador for Berklee College and was sent to speak and perform at various high-schools in America and France. Within in no time, Chantel found herself songwriting and recording for Bishop T.D Jakes’ label Dexterity Sound & Universal Music Group, and sharing the stage with musical greats likes Sheila E., Anita Baker, Rodney Jerkins and The Yellow Jackets. 

Throughout her college career a deep passion grew in Chantel for empowering her generation as well as the next. In a pursuit to answer this passion, she began to speak, teach and lead worship for various youth conferences and organiza5ons including The DeVos Urban Leadership Conference and Jeanne Mayo’s National Youth Conference. She’s worked closely with Pastor Chris Durso & Youth Explosion of Christ Tabernacle in Queens, NY and was given the opportunity to write songs and lead worship for Ron Luce & Teen Mania’s Battle Cry conferences, reaching over 38,000 youth. In 2009, Chantel co-founded a songwriting/production company ChannelFM (Channel Focused Media) with her father and RCA Music Group A&R Representative, Francheska Montilla.

Since starting the company, she has teamed up with several hit-making & grammy winning and nomitated producers such as Hannon Lane & Mosley Music, Wirlie Morris, Tony Hemmings & The Inkredibles, Harvey Mason Jr. & The Underdogs etc. In 2011, Chantel wrote, produced and performed on Rahni song’s “Breakin’ The Rules” album which reached #3 on the Billboard Jazz Charts and her single “Star of the Story” was listed as the 3rd most requested song on radio. That same year she won BET’s 106th & Park Wild Out Wednesday Female R&B Competition.  In 2011, Chantel and her family started their ministry, Signature Music Design, non-profit organization focused on mentoring musicians, artists, producers and engineers who raise funding and awareness for various charities worldwide. Within a year, they have partnered with authors and evangelists, John and Lisa Bevere of Messenger International and their organization Pearl Alliance (rescuing women and children from Human-trafficking), NBA All Star Ray Allen’s Ray of Hope Foundation, The North Shore Music Theatre and Boston Children’s Hospital for more information please visit www.smdmusic.org

With over 15 years of experience as a national and international recording artist, songwriter, minister and educator, Chantel has joined the faculty of Berklee College of Music as one of the youngest members of the Ensemble Department. Her passion to love, mentor, educate and empower all she encounters, fuels her work and ministry allowing her to live a signature life.
