Hello to one and all!

Many of you have asked when I’m coming to your specific city. Well, here in one fell swoop, I’m listing the ton of shows I have coming up. If your city isn’t listed, email me and let me know what that city is. We’re constantly working to crack open new cities and perform in new places, so let me know where you are and where you like to see your favorite artists perform in your city. We’re also confirming some shows, so look out for an up date on shows in the next week or two!
First up is my beloved London and the Jazz Cafe, where I’ll be participating in two special birthday tribute shows to Mr. Marvin Gaye. It’s this weekend, so get your tickets now!
I’m also very happy to announce that I’m participating in a couple of tours this Spring. One is the My Black Is Beautiful Tour. I’m always glad to help celebrate my beautiful Black sisters in any way I can. Admission is free, let’s celebrate together, okay? Then, there is the Jazzy Soul Collective Tour with my boy Anthony David and my sweet sister Angela Johnson. We’ve got some special things up our sleeves for this one, so make sure you catch us in the city nearest you! Just a note to the west coast folks, we’re confirming dates now, so hold on. Hold on! And of course, I’m still setting up dates in all of my favorite cities, including my dear Atlanta, beautiful Nashville, and many others. Check the dates below, so if you’re traveling for work or pleasure, come check us out!

Hope to see you this weekend, London, and in the coming weeks for everyone else!
