MvVO Art Launches AD ART SHOW
My View: It’s Not Climate Change..It’s Nicole Henry in The Arts Garage

 The temperature rose in Delray Beach last night but this time it wasn’t because of climate change.  Sultry jazz vocalist Nicole Henry was performing on the stage of the Arts Garage.  While her music may be real “cool” she is one “hot” vocalist on all levels.  Musical currents flow in many directions during a Nicole Henry show and even though this particular performance was a homage to Whitney Houston, it was in fact equally about the vocal prowess and personality of Nicole Henry.  Whatever theme Nicole chooses to explore in concert or  cabaret appearance, the secret sauce is the expertise of Ms. Henry, one of the most exciting singers out there today.  

Nicole Henry

Heralded by The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, The Japan Times, El Pais, Jazz Times, Essence and more, Ms. Henry tells real stories through unparalleled interpretations of repertoire from the American Songbook, classic and contemporary jazz, popular standards, blues and originals.

She has captivated audiences in over 20 countries, headlining at venues in cities including New York, Tokyo, Madrid, Moscow, Paris, Shanghai, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, San Francisco and Miami.

She has recorded with some of today’s musical greats including Kirk Whalum, Julian Lage, Gerald Clayton and Gil Goldstein and has performed with the Duke Ellington Orchestra, the Henry Mancini Institute Orchestra and Michael Feinstein.
