Oleta Adams to perform live in Sandton

Posted by radio On March - 23 - 2018

Oleta Adams, one of soul music’s legendary names, will set the stage alight when she performs at the Sandton Convention Centre (Pavilion) on Friday, April 27, 2018. She will share the musical honours with South Africa’s own Wanda Baloyi. These two diverse performers make a dynamic package and something to which dedicated music followers can look forward.

 

“T Musicman is delighted to bring  back Oleta Adams to our shores to share the stage with  as we celebrate 21 years of the Standard Bank Joy of Jazz and 20 years of a fruitful partnership with Standard Bank. This journey deserves a spectacular celebration”.

 

We are honored with the support we have had from Business, Public institutions and the public in general. Get your ticket and come experience and celebrate with us for one night only. This Road to Standard Bank Joy of Jazz paves a way to the exciting line up announcement scheduled in May.

 

Adams is a unique artist. She has inspired a growing legion of fans in both the U.S. and Europe with journeys of the heart through songs that draw deeply from her roots in gospel, while crossing effortlessly into the realms of soul, R&B, urban, and popular music.

She came to the attention of the music world with the runaway success of her 1990 Platinum debut album, Circle of One. The record spawned the impassioned hit single, Get Here, the Brenda Russell composition that became the unofficial anthem of the 1991 Gulf War.

 

Her success, nurtured by worldwide tours with Tears for Fears, Phil Collins, Michael Bolton, and Luther Vandross, has been solidified by four Grammy nominations and a seemingly bottomless well of creative energy.

 

Oleta will be adding to her musical legacy with the release in April of a new secular album, Let’s Stay Here, which she is producing herself in addition to writing eight of the ten songs on the album. It will be her eighth album.

 

The album is described as “evocative with a soulful jazz influence and songs that project many tantalising thoughts.” It also features Nina Simone’s “Feeling Good”. The concert, presented by Road to Standard Bank Joy of Jazz, falls under the T Music Man banner. This is the organisation behind the annual Standard Bank Joy of Jazz festival which it has organised with enormous success for the past 31 years.

 

The concert begins at 20:00, but doors will open at 19:30. Tickets prices are R400 and can be obtained from Computicket.
