Soulful Songstress Nicole Henry Kicks Off the Holidays!
December 1st
Miami Beach Stage Door
500 71st Street
Miami Beach

U.S. Launch of “Set For The Season” CD. Sophisticated, soulful and fun, Nicole Henry will debut songs from her Holiday CD Set For The Season: Live in Japan.

Nicole has won praise from both critics and audiences worldwide for her powerful ability to truly touch and inspire people with her beautiful voice and stunning presence. She has released four international Top 10 jazz CDs and has toured more than 14 countries.

Now, just months after the release of her critically-acclaimed CD Embraceable, Nicole keeps the momentum rolling with a joyous jazz collection of holiday-themed classics recorded live at the Cotton Club in Tokyo.

“Singing holiday music has always brought me so much joy, and being able to spread this joy is a rare privilege,” said the Miami-based Henry. “It truly is the season for sharing and giving joy generously from the heart, thus the perfect occasion to create a live musical holiday.”

Backed by Pete Wallace (piano), James McCoy (bass) and David Chiverton (drums, percussion), Nicole puts her own soulful and spirited spin on the festive tunes. From The Sound of Music, “My Favorite Things” is presented as an intricately arranged groovy waltz. Starting out playfully, “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” evolves from a children’s standard into a toe-tapping, finger-popping swinger. She delivers a sterling rendition of “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)” and belts out “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town” in the form of a New Orleans-seasoned march,

Sponsors for the event are KCC Productions, Miami Beach Arts Trust and Nicole’s wardrobe is graciously provided by Nicole Miller.

The theatre’s lobby will be adorned with artwork by Lou-Lou Davila Hagopian, whose work reflects her Afro-Puerto Rican roots and her deep love for music. Tickets are $50, with VIP seating priced at $100, which includes a reception with Nicole at a private home following the performance and a signed copy of the CD.
