The Essence of Whitney
OUR NEXT CONCERT!
Saturday, February 16, 2019, 7pm, at the FOX PERFORMING ARTS CENTER, Riverside, CA
THE HISTORY OF THE ESSENCE OF WHITNEY
It began back in 2002 when I began performing at various venues in the Palm Springs area. I quickly became known as the singer who looks and sounds like Whitney Houston and I am constantly being approached to do Whitney look alike/sound alike performances, which I have always graciously declined. About a year after Whitney’s passing, a great number of my supporters, fans and clients earnestly began urging me that "now is the time to do a Whitney Houston Tribute.” Even my husband, Chris (the skeptic), expressed to me that I should earnestly pray about it because he, too, felt that it was time.
I did not want to commit it to prayer because I was afraid of the answer. My thought was as long as I am unaware that I am supposed to do this, I can continue to say no; but if I pray about it and the Lord says "yes", then I can't say no.
The thought of doing a Whitney Houston tribute concert terrified me because she has huge shoes to fill; the numerous power ballads and #1 hits she sang felt a bit too much for me. However, my public thought differently...and so did the Lord. So here I am, being obedient to the God that both Whitney and I serve(d).
On October 18th and 19th of 2014, we debuted “The Essence of Whitney” tribute concert at the Indian Wells Theatre in Palm Desert, California. I was honored and privileged to work with Chaka Khan’s Musical Director as well as many musicians who actually toured with Whitney. The critics loved it. The fans loved it. I loved it. It was a tremendous collaboration of effort and talent, and I realized I could, in fact, honor the legacy of Whitney Houston.
On September 9, 2017 I performed our concert at the Cashman Center Theatre in Las Vegas!
The reviews poured in and the comments were overwhelming: “tremendous”, “otherworldly”, “amazing”, “incredible”, “phenomenal”, and “magical”. I can only say that I have the best fans in the world!
Your support and love is so appreciated and I look forward to seeing you in Riverside, California at the Fox Performing Arts Center on February 16, 2019!
Bless you all,
