Sing Sistah Sing! (Andrea Baker)

By | Published on Tuesday 21 August 2018

Andrea Baker seized my attention and didn’t let go for an entire hour! She sang everything from Wagner to Gospel and had complete, transfixing command of each genre; at no point did she sound like an opera star doing Disco, rather she transformed into a Disco diva. This was an informative celebration of female African/American singers through the ages and not only was I educated, but I also had a damn good time! An international opera singer, her acting and performance were outstanding, particularly in ‘Women be wise’ and ‘Habanera’, though what really stirred my soul was to hear her singing Spirituals; but then within a few songs she became a frolicsome minx! What a gal!

Assembly Rooms, until 26 Aug.
