Benefiting SAVE and Miami Music Project
Tuesday, December 5, 2023
6:00 PM – VIP Reception w/ Open Bar & Hors d'oeuvres
7:30 PM – Showtime
Colony Theatre, Miami Beach
Returning to the Colony Theatre for her 10th benefit concert, world-renowned, award-winning vocalist Nicole Henry will celebrate and pay homage to The Divas that we know and love: Diana, Ella, Barbra, Chaka, Doris, Whitney, Tina and more. Of course, a lil’ holiday music will deliver additional joy for the season, as will the gift-giving, while this concert raises funds for two local non-profit organizations, The Miami Music Project and the presenting 501c3, SAVE.
Henry’s versatile and emotionally driven performances have wowed audiences in 20 countries. Among her numerous accolades, Henry received the Soul Train Award for “Best Traditional Jazz Performance,” “Best New Jazz Artist” by HMV Japan, and “Best Solo Musician” by the Miami New Times. She has enjoyed four TOP 10 CDs including her latest album “Time to Love Again” which reached #4 on the U.S. jazz radio chart and remained in the TOP 40 for 20 weeks.
The New York Times, Miami Herald, and Jazz Times Magazine have compared Nicole Henry to Sarah Vaughan, Whitney Houston, and Natalie Cole for her dynamic range, impeccable phrasing, and bluesy gospel style. Whether burning through a swing tune or gently caressing a ballad, Nicole truly makes each song uniquely her own and “aims right for the emotional center” (Billboard). The New York Times raved, “I had the sense of being in the presence of a pop-soul superwoman whose every gesture and inflection conveyed confidence and mastery.” So abandoned is her joy that you can’t watch her without being drawn in.
