ADRIANE LENOX discusses how she got her start on the stage and her love for some of the 20th century's great songwriters in advance of "Divas of the Silver Screen," her 2015 show at Jazz at Lincoln Center.
Ethel Waters, Lena Horne, and Rosemary Clooney are honored in "Divas of the Silver Screen," our opening Singers Over Manhattan performance. Their enormous contributions to stage and screen are heralded by an array of talented performers led by Tony Award-winning actress and vocalist Adriane Lenox, whose brilliance in the Broadway hit "After Midnight" was met with critical acclaim. The concert also features fresh new voices Martina DaSilva, Tatiana Eva-Marie, and Shenel Johns, with music direction by pianist Chris Pattishall. Tap dancers Michela Marino Lerman and Joseph C. Wiggan add a rare spin to the show with the added element of dance routines from iconic scenes in the golden era of stage and screen.
