Broadway Powerhouse Jennifer Holliday Performs with

Seattle Men’s Chorus; Opening 2008 Holiday Concert Series

December 7 & 8 at Benaroya Hall; 8:00 PM

Flying House Productions is thrilled to announce that Jennifer Holliday, a self-proclaimed “Broadway Baby,” will perform with Seattle Men’s Chorus for two very special holiday concerts on December 7th and 8th at Benaroya Hall. Enjoy Holliday for the Holidays–to witness her vocal power live in concert is truly an unforgettable experience.

Jennifer Holliday’s show-stopping, heart-wrenching performance of the torch ballad “And I’m Telling You, I’m Not Going” in the smash hit Broadway musical, Dreamgirls, made her a household name and introduced her big soulful voice to the world. It also garnered her both a Tony and Grammy Award. She has been crowned a “singer’s singer;” a truly electrifying performer who delivers her songs with deep passion and sincere emotion. Her soulful and throaty style touches hearts and leaves audiences moved with inspiration and spirits soaring. With her commanding voice, Miss Holliday has travelled from Broadway Theatres (Your Arms Are Too Short To Box With God, Dreamgirls) to Hollywood Recording Studios to sing with fellow legends (Barbra Streisand, Luther Vandross, Michael Jackson). She has toured the nation (Sing Mahalia Sing, Harlem Suite, Black Nativity) sung with symphonies (Boston Pops Symphony, The National Symphony), and worked on several film and TV productions including several seasons on Ally McBeal as Lisa Knowles, the outspoken, quirky choir director at McBeal’s church

For the 2008 holiday season, the legendary Miss Holliday will join Seattle Men’s Chorus in their festive Holiday Concert, titled Fruitcake. The run includes seven Seattle performances from December 7-22 an additional concert in Everett on December 6th and in Tacoma on December 13th. Jennifer Holliday will perform select numbers with the Chorus during the first two Seattle concerts on December 7 and 8 only at 8:00 PM. Tickets are on sale now for subscribers. Individual tickets go on sale November 3, 2008.
