In “A Love Letter to Lena Horne,” Clairdee will commemorate the career of the groundbreaking singer, actress, and activist with fresh arrangements of songs associated with Horne from Harlem to Hollywood, Broadway and beyond. The program will include historical references and personal reflections on Horne’s significance as an American cultural icon. Clairdee’s lustrous voice and soulful delivery hearken back to a time when jazz, pop, and R&B often blended seamlessly together.
In the tradition of all great vocalists, Clairdee infuses her own unique style while always remaining true to the song itself.”
