Join Lalah Hathaway and Ruben Studdard for an evening of classic soul coupled with rhythm and blues hits - one elegant show with a seamless blending of classic duets, fan favorites, and selections from each artist’s respective catalogs.
Born to R&B/Soul music royalty, most people know Lalah Hathaway simply as the daughter of late Soul music legend, Donny Hathaway. But there is more to Lalah Hathaway than that. A trained pianist and vocalist, she is a graduate of the Berklee School of Music and her career has spanned two decades. 21 years after the release of her first LP, her career continues to thrive. In total her work includes multiple solo releases, guest collaborations and a steady stream of unforgettable live performances.
One of her more recent collaborations includes the “Velvet Teddy Bear” himself, Verve Recording artist, Ruben Studdard whose highly anticipated upcoming album is scheduled for a February 2014 release. Crowned as Fox Television’s “American Idol” after he pulled in 24 million votes, Ruben followed his Idol success with a string of gold and platinum records, top ten albums and R&B and pop singles. His latest project is filled with some of the most romantic songs Studdard has ever recorded including a duet with Lalah Hathaway on the Stevie Wonder gem, “With You I’m Born Again” and the Luther Vandross classic, “If This World Were Mine”.
With words like “Silky, classy, sexy, romantic, rich, warm and soothing” used to describe their voices, the event promises to be an unforgettable entertainment experience. Two extraordinary voices joined for one amazing night. It doesn’t get much better than that.
