“….the vocal love child of Whitney Houston and Sarah Vaughan." – Miami Herald
Since her CD debut in 2004, Nicole Henry has earned three top-10 albums and a Soul Train Award for Best Traditional Jazz Performance. With a passionate, soulful voice and heartfelt charisma, Ms. Henry has captivated audiences in over 20 countries telling real stories through unparalleled interpretations.
With "Where Love Is," Ms. Henry dives into her favorite parts of a song: the lyrics and the passion behind what is being expressed. The night will include gems written by Alan & Marilyn Bergman, Ned Washington and Jimmy Van Heusen. Also included are selections from Henry’s upcoming CD that celebrates the musical legacy of the legendary Miss Nancy Wilson.
“She phrases songs with a freewheeling sense of play that never loses sight of the subject at hand. At the same time, she holds back the force of her tart-timbered voice until the right dramatic moment to unleash its considerable power.”– New York Times
