N'Kenge (Motown: The Musical, Sondheim on Sondheim), reunites with Pops Conductor Jack Everly to perform as a soloist with the Indianapolis Symphony in a new concert CLASSIC FM: RADIO HITS FROM THE DECADES. The Orchestra will take audiences on a musical journey through four decades of hits up and down the FM dial - from Elton John and Billy Joel to Aretha Franklin, Chicago and more!

When not performing with Symphonies and Motown: The Musical, N'Kenge is busy as a celebrity correspondent for Canadian based publication Spotlight Magazine.

N'Kenge made her West End debut starring in The Genius of Ray Charles and has been hailed by Variety as "a sensational powerhouse of a singer packed in a lithe body". N'Kenge made her Carnegie Hall debut with the New York Pops Orchestra where NY Times called her "a classically trained diva that can stretch from Broadway, Pop Soul to Opera". N'Kenge has performed as a soloist with many Symphonies including Cleveland Orchestra, Baltimore Symphony, Cincinnati Symphony and Naples Philharmonic to name a few.
