Best of Avery Sommers
In a tapestry of songs that includes spirituals, gospel, and blues; Avery Sommers shares her journey on the way to fully embracing her voice. She is a South Florida treasure and Broadway veteran with a "powerhouse"

A frequent headliner at the former Royal Room Cabaret at The Colony Hotel, Palm Beach, Sommers earned plaudits for her performance in The Little Foxes at Palm Beach Dramaworks, and was nominated for a Carbonell Award for her role in Hairspray at Actor's Playhouse in Coral Gables. Most recently, she was the musical showstopper in the Centennial Celebration of the League of Women Voters of Palm Beach County.
