Nancy Wilson’s musical style is so diverse that it is hard to classify. Over the years her repertoire has included pop style ballads, jazz and blues, show tunes and well known standards. She has been described her as “a jazz singer,” “a blues singer,” “a pop singer,” and “a cabaret singer.” Still others have referred to her as “a storyteller”, “a consummate actress,” and “the complete entertainer.” Then who is this song stylist whose voice embodies the nuances of gospel, blues, and jazz? Her renditions of songs like Guess Who I Saw Today and Sometimes I’m Happy as well as her collaboration with Julian ”Cannonball” Adderley producing hits like Save Your Love For Me and The Masquerade Is Over catapulted Nancy Wilson to jazz stardom.
She was nicknamed “The Girl With The Honey Coated Voice” winning multiple Grammy awards as well as an Emmy award and recording over 70 albums throughout a career spanning 6 decades.
Tonight, Rebecca Mendoza pays tribute to the wonderful Nancy Wilson.
REBECCA MENDOZA is one of the finest jazz singers in Australia and Nancy Wilson was a major influence on Rebecca from an early age. Rebecca has developed into a world class performer with a innate ability to tell a story through song. From singing in intimate jazz clubs to large musical theatres all over the world and even the silver screen Rebecca’s voice always shines. She'll be joined by the Joe Ruberto Quartet for what will surely be an unforgettable evening not to be missed.
