The late, great Dinah Washington, self-proclaimed Queen of the Blues and one of the most popular singers of the 1950’s, sang the blues, popular song and jazz with equal success and influenced a generation of female vocalists after her. With hits like “Ain’t Misbehavin’,” “What A Diff’rence A Day Makes,” and “Unforgettable,” Washington was a jazz singer who achieved unprecedented cross-genre success, earning her an induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Now rising star Champian Fulton, “an assured vocalist with a galvanizing presence” (The New Yorker) hailed as “the most gifted pure jazz singer of her generation” (Detroit Free Press), pays tribute to Dinah Washington with a brand-new show. In an exclusive New York appearance, the rising star pianist and singer joins with her quintet to present the U.S. debut of “Letters to Dinah Washington.”
