From Jazz to Soul - Great African American Women Singers

 

In celebration of African-American History Month, on Sunday, February 11th at 2 pm, Milford Library, 57 New Haven Ave., welcomes the extraordinary vocal talents of Rhonda Denét. Accompanied by pianist Mike Bardash, Rhonda will perform a collection of jazz standards and soul classics that spans 5 decades. You’ll enjoy hits from a time when the "First Lady Of Song," Ella Fitzgerald graced the stage to when the "Queen of Soul," Aretha Franklin ruled the airways. Homage will be paid not only to Ella and Aretha, but also to jazz stylists such as Billie Holiday, Dinah Washington, Nina Simone, and Nancy Wilson. Soul divas Etta James, Martha Reeves, Mary Wells, and Gladys Knight will also be represented.  After celebrating all who have influenced her, Rhonda will share some of her original music. Through the music, the magic and the message, there is bound to be something for everyone!

A star in her own right, Ms. Denét began studying music at an early age. Her passion led her to earn a Bachelor of Music from New York University and a graduate degree in Arts Administration from Florida State University’s School of Music. Since 2007 she has been active in the professional music scene as a writer, producer and singer with several New York area bands.
