Through a colorful tapestry of iconic songs and witty personal storytelling, Calvert uses her own award-winning vocal talents to create this captivating musical tribute.

Calvert is best known for originating her role in the Tony®-nominated Broadway musical "It Ain't Nothin' But The Blues" alongside Grammy® winning jazz vocalist Gregory Porter. The New York Times wrote, "Carter Calvert effervesces: her voice echoes chimes in the night" and "Her smoldering grip on 'Fever' is positively dangerous." She is featured on the cast recording and starred in the show's national tour. Other tours include the title role in "Always...Patsy Cline" opposite Sally Struthers, the featured role of 'Grizabella' in the Broadway National touring company of "Cats," the European tour of "Smokey Joe's Café," and an international tour of Neil Berg's "100 Years of Broadway."

Calvert has opened for iconic performers including Liza Minnelli, Marilyn McCoo, Chubby Checker and The Temptations. Her television credits include "The David Letterman Show," "The Rosie O'Donnell Show," and "The Today Show."

Calvert is an accomplished actress, as well as a popular voice-over artist. She's been featured in numerous national television and radio commercials. While still in high school, Downbeat Magazine named Calvert "Best Female Jazz Vocalist" and Star Song Records hailed her as "Best Female Vocalist of the Year." Ms. Calvert has been touring the globe as a headliner on the prestigious Crystal Cruise line as well as a headliner in clubs and theaters across the country with her solo shows, "Viva La Diva," "Natural Woman: A Carole King Celebration" and "Walkin' After Midnight: A Tribute to Patsy Cline."
