I'm making my St. Louis debut at The Emerald Room, a new, intimate venue featuring cabaret performers from St. Louis and around the U.S.
This show was created for the annually-themed Spirit & Place Festival at the Jazz Kitchen in Indianapolis. Selected as one of nearly 30 events city-wide to interpret the "DREAM" theme, "Let It Shine" is a quintessential cabaret performance using carefully curated songs to tell a story.
My inspiration for this show comes from my favorite quote: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. ... We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”-- Marianne Williamson
What started as a notch on my bucket list has become a full-fledged career pursuit. Four years ago, I mustered the courage to my her light shine as I serenaded friends in my living room. Living into my dream to sing professionally, “Let It Shine” is my fifth solo cabaret show expressing my passion for weaving together songs and stories not only about my journey to sing solo, but also to find love and live happily ever after. Music will include classics from the Great American Songbook, Broadway, jazz, folk/country, and popular music.
