Taborah Johnson


B: March 21, 1953

Taborah “Tabby” Johnson, is the sister of actor Clark Johnson and rock and jazz singer Molly Johnson. She was still in her teens when she began her career on stage in the Toronto production of Hair. The rock musical had its Canadian Premiere at The Royal Alexandra Theatre in December 1969 and became the first theatrical production in Toronto to play a record 53-week engagement. Johnson went on to be a backing vocalist for Rick James, touring with the singer from 1979 to 1982. Back in Toronto, she sang as a jazz performer and as a backing vocalist for her sister. She also began her acting career being cast for both film and television including being a host on the beloved TVOntario kids program Polka Dot Door. Her great “pipes” also led to voice work in animated series including 13 episodes of Star Wars: Ewoks, 65 episodes of Babar, The Care Bears, Rupert, Beverly Hills Teens and many, many more. Her voice also brought gigs as a radio announcer in Toronto in the early 2000s.
