Don’t miss the beautiful holiday music experience of Colors of Christmas. You’re in for a real treat.
You’ll get to hear me sing Christmas and Pop classics beyond a couple of my own that I’ve never done including duets with Peabo Bryson, Ruben Studdard and Marilyn McCoo.
Pull out that nice outfit you’ve been waiting to wear or a fun Christmas sweater and be surrounded in the loving spirit of the season. Come lose yourself in the music and performances, make it a gift for a friend!
As the world continues to turn for all of the bad and good..life keeps ticking. I choose to focus of the energy of always being the change I want to see and encouraging others – love is the message.
I’m Nashville as honoree “Crossover Music Icon” for my contributions to soul and pop music as trendsetter and Icon – it’s really even more special to be honored on same night as The Jacksons (rest in peace King of Pop Michael Jackson)..they were such an inspiration to me growing up as I’ve said along the way of my career and life journey- my Mom could tell you that! Music is such a powerful force in life. Heals, inspires, motivates, gives hope..and so much more. I’m so thankful to continue to spread joy and to also continue to inspire others to be yourself, stay strong and do you — no matter what people have to say.
The taping is this evening and will be televised in September and October.
We still have a long way to go as human beings on planet earth…
In Nashville, I came across the reminder of how those who fight for change with the system being as it is are often penalized. Hats off to fighters for civil and human rights then and now.
What the commemorative sign reads : “On February 13, 1960 124 students from Nashville’s historically black colleges and universities walked into Woolworth’s, Kress and McClellan’s and sat down at the lunch counters and asked to be served to no avail. The students also targeted Walgreens, W.T. Grant as well as Harvey’s, and Cain Sloan Department stores. Their goal was to desegregate Nashville lunch counters. The student protesters experienced no violence until February 27. On that day at Woolworth’s and McClellan’s white resisters threw the students from their seats, punched, kicked and spat upon them. Nashville police only arrested the student protesters. 81 students were arrested and charged with loitering and disorderly conduct. Two days later, the court fined each student 50.00. They took a principled stand and refused to pay the bail and spent 33 1/3 days in jail. ” let that sink in and fast forward to 2017

I’m very excited to announce my return to the Colors of Christmas Tour “America’s Favorite Christmas Concert”, after 15 years – celebrating their 25th Anniversary. It was a great experience before singing a classic hits and Christmas favorites as well as joining the other artists on holiday gems performed with an orchestra. I’m looking forward to singing with Peabo Bryson, Ruben Studdard and the venerable music duo Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis Jr.
