Friday September 20th at 8:00 and 10:30PM, the Inter-Media Art
Center in Huntington, Long
Island, will host a concert featuring jazz, soul and R&B
vocalist Oleta Adams.
Adams was inspired as a child by the music of Aretha Franklin,
Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway. The youngest of three girls
and two boys, she spent her formative years in Seattle before
traveling over the mountains at age six to Yakima, Washington,
an idyllic town of 60,000 with a black population of less than
600. There she revealed her budding vocal gifts in Pilgrim Baptist
Church where her father served as minister.
debut album, Circle of One, was a runaway success featuring
her impassioned hit Get Here---the Brenda Russell
composition that became an unofficial anthem of the 1991 Gulf
War. Her second album, Evolution received equally exuberant
kudos and sent Oleta on the road with soul master Luther Vandross.
Since then, Oleta has received lots of radio play on NY area
jazz and soul radio stations. But
her live performance
is absolutely inspiring and IMAC is very proud to present Oleta
Adams on our stage.
