Audiences will be left breathless by this extraordinary evening featuring two highly acclaimed singer-songwriters. Music divas Amanda McBroom and Ann Hampton Callaway combine their golden voices and contagious joie de vivre to celebrate classics from the Great American Songbook and their own popular and contemporary originals. Award-winning pianist and acclaimed songwriter Michele Brourman, who has collaborated with McBroom to compose music for 18 feature films, accompanies the duo in this stunning showcase of song and storytelling.
A Golden Globe winner and Grammy nominee, McBroom has starred on Broadway and performed solo concerts in the world’s leading venues, including Carnegie Hall and the Angel Place Recital Hall in Sydney, Australia.
A songwriter known for her profound lyrics and powerful expressiveness, McBroom’s songs have been recorded by a wide variety of leading artists, spanning Barry Manilow, Judy Collins, LeAnn Rimes, Kurt Cobain, Donny Osmond and Harry Belafonte. She first came to the attention of music lovers when Bette Midler’s version of McBroom’s song “The Rose” hit No. 1 all over the world.
Callaway, recently voted by Broadway World as "Performer of the Year" and "Best Jazz Vocalist," is hailed as a leading champion of the Great American Songbook. A Platinum Award-winning songwriter, her songs are featured on seven of Barbra Streisand’s recent CDs. Callaway's live performances are known for her warmth, spontaneous wit and passionate delivery of standards, jazz classics and originals. Callaway has been a special guest performer with Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, she performed for President Clinton in Washington, D.C., and she has sung with more than 30 of the world's top orchestras and big bands.
