Desiree Roots: Celebrating Nancy WilsonJazz
Virginia native and vocal powerhouse Desiree Roots pays tribute to Nancy Wilson, one of the great female jazz and pop voices of the 20th century, in an intimate cabaret setting. The Grammy winning Wilson transcended genres throughout her career, just as roots has done on stage as a solo performer and through lead roles in hit musicals such as Dreamgirls and the Color Purple, Roots, who wrote and starred in a centennial celebration of Ella Fitzgerald and continues to tour with the show, now finds inspiration in the renowned Wilson, who won her first Grammy for the hit song How Glad I Am in 1965, and 40 years later was recognized again for Best Jazz Vocal Album R.S.V.P. *This event will take place is our Studio Theatre space.
