Mars Arts D.C. Concert Series at Songbyrd
Wednesday, May 8, 2024, 8:00 p.m.
Songbyrd Music House

With her impeccable vocal range and unmatched artistry, Helen Hayes Award winner Roz White (Gee’s Bend) effortlessly brings to life a repertoire of show-stopping numbers and heartfelt ballads with a four-piece band. White is well-known to national audiences from her role as the mother of a young Tina Turner in the national touring company Broadway’s Tina, and her self-penned cabaret Pearl Bailey... by Request (Off-Broadway 2011). She is especially beloved in the region for her scene-stealing turns at local theatres, such as Studio Theatre, Mosaic, and (most regularly featured) MetroStage. Her dynamic stage presence and magnetic charisma captivate, creating an evening of pure musical magic. Free with registration. Registration available in early 2024.
