Diana Ross Announces First Concerts Ever On The  Hawaiian IslandsDiana Ross Announces First Concerts Ever On The Hawaiian Islands
by BWW News Desk - Mar 20, 2015

With a career spanning over six decades it's inconceivable to think Diana Ross has never performed a concert in Hawaii. That's all about to change as Ms. Ross brings her magical live stage production to The Islands. The concert is a complete theatrical experience, filled with breathtaking costumes, an elegant stage design, and a massive catalog of hit songs, such as 'Stop! In the Name of Love', 'Touch Me in the Morning', and 'Ain't No Mountain High Enough.' Reviews have been stellar for her recent shows, proving that the icon of stage and screen is still in her prime. The Star-Telegram in Texas raves: 'Diana Ross held the fortunate (audience)...in the palm of her hand from the beginning, and never let them go.' As the star herself has stated, 'My interaction is with the audience on a one-to-one. I always try to see their faces and try to see their eyes. It's that harmonious vibration, good energy that flows between the audience and myself and the band and the music. Music is like love. It feels good. It's about sharing. Music is like the heartbeat of our world.' (more...)

by Alix Cohen - Mar 12, 2015

Emerging as a pop diva in the 1970s, Maureen McGovern has been somewhere on the scene for decades. She still has a powerful, well-honed instrument, sufficient to perform confident acapella. However, It's difficult to tell from her new 54 Below show, Sing, My Sisters, Sing! Celebrating Women Singer/Songwriters, whether the artist's range has vastly diminished or arrangements and rhythms, often unsympathetic to original tunes, are so similar as to make an otherwise diverse selection of songs homogeneous.
