If you attended “A Tribute to Great Jazz Divas” last year at the Academy for Academics and Arts (AAA) Sparkman Drive, Huntsville then you will can attest to this great show and the singers who make it all possible.
Valley Arts is proud to present this show in partnership with the Princess Theatre in Decatur. It is both entertaining, family-friendly, and music educational.
Get ready for terrific local vocalists to portray the likes of legendary jazz divas such as Sarah Vaughan, Peggy Lee, Dinah Washington and others. One of our last year's jazz divas Annie-Readus Erskine who portrayed Etta James and did a spectacular job, is back with us to portray Carmen McRae.
Carmen McRae grew up in New York City. She is an American jazz vocalist and pianist who from an early age emulation of vocalist Billie Holiday grew to become a distinctive stylist, known for her smoky voice and her melodic variations on jazz standards.
