LaKisha Jones: To Whitney, With Love - Enjoy an unbelievable evening celebrating great ladies of song from Diana Ross, Donna Summer, Tina Turner and the one and only Whitney Houston. From sound stages or concert halls across the country and around the world, she’s got them standing in the aisles.
A top 4 finalist of the 2007 season of “American Idol,” LaKisha Jones is ready to reclaim center stage in music, theatre and television. Her last album, “So Glad I’m Me” was full of Jones’ expressive, full-bodied and arresting vocals, the same voice that electrified “American Idol” viewers with the “Dream girls” showstopper “And I Am Telling You” and later the Broadway stage in the Oprah Winfrey produced, Tony Award-winning musical, “The Color Purple.” Following her Broadway stint, Jones provided vocal coaching on MTV’s reality competition “Legally Blonde: The Search for Elle Woods,” a show designed to find and hone Broadway’s next star.
A frequent soloist with symphony around the world, Ms. Jones has performed as a guest soloist with the National Symphony, San Diego Symphony, Utah Symphony and Opera, Winnipeg Symphony, Evansville Philharmonic, Jacksonville Symphony, Minnesota Orchestra, Colorado Symphony, Grand Rapids Symphony, Reno Philharmonic, Houston Symphony, Cleveland Orchestra, Anchorage Symphony Orchestra, Phoenix Symphony, Vancouver Symphony, Calgary Symphony, Tucson Symphony, Oregon Symphony, Long Bay Symphony, Battle Creek Symphony, Windham Chamber Singers and the Festival Cesky Krumlov in the Czech Republic.
