I Put A Spell On You: A Tribute to Nina Simone
Alberta Rose Theatre
3000 NE Alberta Street
March 9, 2019, 8 p.m.
Nina Simone's legacy is undeniable. The tragic, lauded artist and civil rights activist was one of the greats of her era, a classical pianist who began to sing when her early gigs required it. Her emotive voice was an agent of change, and her career is the focus of this spectacular homage. LaRhonda Steele is spellbinding in this role with the Adrian Martin Sextet. Known for her warm, bluesy alto and dynamic stage presence, LaRhonda has wowed audiences as one of the most prominent blues vocalists of the Northwest for decades, and like Simone, she's not immune to the trials of life, having battled breast cancer. Paired with Adrian’s high energy classical-meets-jazz sextet, the power of Nina Simone's legacy is bound to shine in glorious light.
