Whitney Houston was the voice of a generation. Her countless hit singles will live forever in the songbook of our world. I Believe In You And Me, I’m Every Woman, I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me), I Have Nothing…the list goes on and on. On the five-year anniversary of her tragic (and all too early) passing from this earth, New York based R&B singer Lea Anderson is gathering her band and special guest singers to pay tribute to one of the greatest voices pop music has ever known.
It is without a doubt that Lea Anderson has what the music industry has been waiting for. Through her own rhythm and blues, Lea Anderson aims to create an intimate connection between herself and anyone who has come in contact with her fluid soprano sound. A timeless entity providing us with sounds enlaced with heartfelt melodies, Lea’s powerful vocals can tell a story of past heartbreaks, current happiness, new found self-love, and hopes for equality.
A staple of New York’s live music scene, Lea has played venues from The Apollo, Rockwood Music Hall, The Shrine, The Duplex, Duane Park, as well as the Make Music NYC and Afropunk Festivals, just to name a few. She’s worked with underground hip-hop favorites such as John “JR” Robinson, J Rawls, and Khary Durgans. In 2016, Lea released her first album entitled (Pronounced Lee). Her EP was recorded and produced by Grammy nominated and recipient of 16 Billboard Awards, D-Moet. For more information visit www.iamLeaAnderson.com or https://www.youtube.com/user/MusicByLyricLea
It goes without saying that Whitney Houston is a monumental influence to Lea’s music. She can stop a room with her renditions of Whitney’s songs. After years of singing her favorites like I Will Always Love You, and pleading friends begging her to put this show together, Lea has decided to officially pay tribute to one of her favorite artists, on this special date of her passing.
Lea will be joined by some of New York’s best signers to help her pay tribute. Already the line up includes the voices of: Carla Gibson, Dale Novella Anderson, Shay Leonia, Christopher Flowers, and J Lyfe, with more to be announced soon. They will be backed by a live band, and backup singers headed by Caitlin Bement.
The show is produced and directed in part by cabaret artist Andy Crosten and produced in part by actor and theatrical producer Seth Ward Pyatt.
