N'Kenge to Join Cleveland Orchestra for BROADWAY DIVAS This Weekend
N'Kenge (Motown: The Musical, Sondheim on Sondheim) returns to The Cleveland Orchestra as a featured soloist in Broadway Divas under the direction of Conductor Jack Everly for one night only on August 2, 2015 at 7pm. Tickets are currently on sale and can be purchased at The Cleveland Orchestra.
Joining N'Kenge are Christina Bianco, Mandy Gonzalez and Kristen Plumley. Together, the ladies will perform numbers from iconic shows that gave us the heroines we love . . . and the villains we revile - the unforgettable Divas of Broadway. The Orchestra and these amazing ladies will treat you to a Wicked-good evening of Broadway showstoppers, featuring selections from Wicked, Les Miz, Cabaret, My Fair Lady, Chicago, and more.
The dazzling darling will perform "Summertime" from Porgy and Bess, "I Am Telling You" from Dreamgirls, and "Mein Herr" from Cabaret. Together, the Broadway Divas will wow the audience with their version of "Let It Go" from Frozen, "Can't Help Lovin Dat Man" from Showboat and melodies from Cabaret.
NY Post calls N'Kenge "Electrifying" in the role of Mary Wells in Broadway's Motown: The Musical and she made her Broadway debut in Sondheim on Sondheim alongside Vanessa Williams, Barbara Cook and Norm Lewis. 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.
