Dianne Reeves, Angelique Kidjo and Lizz Wright to Perform at Blaze Festival 2011 in London

Angelique Kidjo
Singing sensations Angelique Kidjo, Dianne Reeves and Lizz Wright will perform together on Tuesday 5 July 2011 at Barbican Hall. This passionate new production honors the great women of jazz, r&b, gospel and the blues.

Following the huge success of 2009’s tribute to Nina Simone, the friendships forged between Sing The Truth’s stars inspired a new show dedicated to the songs of their most admired musical heroines; this celebration embodies the spirits of Miriam Makeba, Abbey Lincoln and Odetta, along with other great women of music from Billie Holiday to Lauryn Hill, as well as showcasing original songs by Kidjo, Reeves and Wright.

The all-star Sing The Truth ensemble features Geri Allen on piano and keyboards, music director Terri Lyne Carrington on drums, James Genus on bass, and Romero Lubambo on guitars.
