Photo Coverage: Amanda McBroom Plays the Colony Hotel in Palm Beach
This week at The Colony Hotel in Palm Beach Florida, Rob Russell entertainment director is presenting Amanda McBroom. Appearing with Amanda, is her long time collaborator and music director pianist/composer Michele Brourman.
Amanda McBroom has been called "...the greatest cabaret performer of her generation, an urban poet who writes like an angel and has a voice to match." Her name first came to the attention of the music public when Bette Midler's version of Amanda's song The Rose hit number one all over the world in 1979. But it was Amanda's performance of her own song on the Golden Globes (she won), Grammys (she didn't) and The Tonight Show that launched her career as a singer as well as songwriter. Her songs have been recorded by the likes of Leanne Rimes, Barry Manilow, Judy Collins, Barbara Cook, Anne Murray, Harry Belafonte, Betty Buckley, Stephanie Mills, The Manhattan Transfer and Donny Osmond. As a singer, she has wowed audiences in concert halls around the world including Carnegie Hall in New York, the FORD Amphitheatre in Los Angeles, Wolftrap and Kennedy Center (where she sang with the National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Marvin Hamlisch) in Washington D.C.
