The late, great Dinah Washington, self-proclaimed "Queen of the Blues" and one of the most popular singers of the 1950s, sang the blues, popular song and jazz with equal success and influenced a generation of female vocalists after her. With hits like “Ain’t Misbehavin’,” “What A Diff’rence A Day Makes,” and “Unforgettable,” Washington was a jazz singer who achieved unprecedented cross-genre success, earning her an induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Now rising star Champian Fulton, “an assured vocalist with a galvanizing presence” (The New Yorker) hailed as “the most gifted pure jazz singer of her generation” (Detroit Free Press), pays tribute to Dinah Washington with a brand-new show. In an exclusive New York appearance, the rising star pianist and singer joins with her quintet to present the U.S. debut of “Letters to Dinah Washington.” Jonathan Schwartz will host.
