You know the classic songs of the greats like Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Roberta Flack, Aretha Franklin, Carole King, Maria Callas, Judy Garland, Patsy Cline, and many more, but do you know their stories? This will be a cabaret-style night filled with amazing anecdotes, fun for the audience and great quality music.
