"Tapestry Unraveled" - The Complete Carole King Album

2 RSVPs
Las Vegas favorite Michelle Johnson performs “Tapestry Unraveled”, a beautifully written musical tribute celebrating Carole King's iconic album, “Tapestry.” Michelle and her musicians perform the work in its entirety, blending the songs and stories behind the music with Michelle’s multi-faceted life as a “Singer to the Stars” and a talented songwriter in her own right. Musical direction by Jeff Neiman. Despite her moniker as Las Vegas’ “First Lady of Jazz”, Michelle Johnson is much more than a jazz singer. Michelle has shared a stage with or recorded with several artists including Paul McCartney, Gladys Knight, Barbara Streisand, Elton John, Sheena Easton and Slash, appeared on several major television networks, and produced events across the globe for various headliners and Fortune 500 companies. Michelle’s versatile musical journey started with a love of songwriting, and a passion for the music of Carole King, her first musical influence. “Tapestry Unraveled” is a complete concert of the album that pulls together the story of one of the most prolific and beloved songwriters of all time, and the journey of a young woman whose story spans from a childhood spent in Cairo, Egypt as the child of diplomats, to the ivy halls of Yale University and eventually the lights of the Broadway stage and beyond. Join us for an intimate and electric evening of storytelling, music, and the soul and power of Carole King’s “Tapestry.” Featuring an outstanding band under the direction of celebrated musical director and arranger Jeffrey Neiman.
