Alicia Olatuja (Virtual Concert)
853 Broadway, New York, NY 10003, USA
This week, we invite you to continue enjoying jazz from your home with a magical performance by vocalist Alicia Olatuja. Since first stepping into the national spotlight in 2013 as a soloist with the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir’s performance at President Barack Obama’s Second Inauguration, Alicia Olatuja has been enchanting audiences with her singular voice, artistic versatility and captivating demeanor. According to The New York Times, she is “a singer with a strong, lustrous tone and an amiably regal presence onstage.” She joined composer/pianist Billy Childs in the touring group of his show “Map to the Treasure: Reimagining Laura Nyro”; and has guested with jazz organ master Dr. Lonnie Smith at multiple events including New York’s annual Charlie Parker Festival. For her latest project, Alicia celebrates the musical contributions of women composers by reinterpreting their songs through her own lens of classic, jazz and soul. As such, Intuition: Songs From The Minds Of Women is a dazzling journey through time, tempo, genre, language, and culture from some of the most respected women artists of our generation. Catch this rising star!
