Charisma Wooten is “The Lady from North Carolina” Nov 12, 2010 at 7:30 pm
Charisma’s voice has a warm earthy sound with a slight raspiness of a blues singer (some might classify as contralto); but she can reach the clear soprano spinto clarity. Her voice invites you into the story, as if she is telling you a secret, states Hamil Harris, The Washington Post.
This performance will feature songs made famous by Nina Simone, Barbara Striesand, Julia Nixon, Billie Holiday, Moms Mabley, Grace Bumbry, Rosemary Clooney, Bonnie Raitt, Carole King, Karen Carpenter, Aretha Franklin and Dionne Warwick. There will be a few surprises for you, too. Maestro Stef Scaggiari is the very fine accompanist.
You will feel like running barefoot in North Carolina on the beach.
