My View: Vivian Reed Sings Lena Horne – FANTASTICALLY at Feinstein’s/54 Below

My View: Vivian Reed Sings Lena Horne – FANTASTICALLY at Feinstein’s/54 Below

There have been many 100 year birthday celebrations of singers this year and one of the best was Vivian Reed Sings Lena Horne at Feinstein’s/54 Below last night.

Vivian has complete technical control of her spine-tingling voice and also complete control of the Lena Horne story.  She produced an exciting and emotional evening of music and conversation that had the audience jumping to it’s feet during and at the show’s conclusion.

Vivian Reed, the two-time Tony Award-nominated Broadway star and concert artist, honored entertainment icon Lena Horne in a special centennial celebration at Broadway’s Supper Club.

KT Sullivan, artistic director of the Mabel Mercer Foundation  introduced Ms. Reed and towards the end of the show re-presented the 2017 Mabel Award to Vivian Reed who received it during the recent Cabaret Convention where as they say “she brought the house down”

For four shows only – November 8, December 7, February 7 and March 7 – Reed will offer high-energy, fearless renditions of Lena classics such as “Stormy Weather,” “The Lady is a Tramp,” “A Fine Romance,” “I’ve Grown Accustomed to His Face” and “On A Wonderful Day Like Today.”
