Nicole Vanessa Ortiz in Becoming Her, a musical salute to chart-topping divas
Thursday, March 7, 2019
At Feinstein's/54 Below, Broadway's Supper Club
The intimate evening will see the songstress take the audience on a musical journey, sharing the songs that have shaped and influenced her musically. Featuring numbers from Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, Tina Turner and more, the exclusive performance will showcase Nicole's voice and honor the divas who have inspired her.
Since she was a child, female vocalists have inspired Nicole to use her gifts as an artist on stage. She landed on "American Idol" as a finalist, won the grand prize on "The Wendy Williams Show" singing competition, and made such an impression singing on BET's "Apollo Live" that Gladys Knight personally invited her on tour. In 2017, Nicole made her theater debut as the leading lady in the Off-Broadway parody Spamilton before starring in the 2018 revival of the Tony-nominated and Grammy Award-winning musical revue Smokey Joe's Cafe: The Songs of Leiber and Stoller.
Under the artistic mentorship of the award-winning screen and stage actress Suzzanne Douglas, Becoming Her: A Diva's Tribute will celebrate some of the most empowering women of song whose iconic anthems have shaped the way we experience love, heartache, and triumph. The performance will showcase Nicole's phenomenal voice through a lineup of hits including "Simply the Best" by Tina Turner, "I'm Every Woman" by Whitney Houston, "Natural Woman" by Aretha Franklin, and "Strong Enough" by Cher.
