Few entertainers have ever commanded such depth of artistry in every medium as Dee Dee Bridgewater. One of the best jazz singers of her generation, Dee Dee has been rewarded with Broadway’s coveted Tony Award (Best Featured Actress in a Musical: “The Wiz”), nominated for the London theater’s West End equivalent, the Laurence Oliver Award (Best Actress in a Musical: “Lady Day”), won three Grammy Awards and earned France’s 1998 top honor, “Victoire de la Musique” (Best Jazz Vocal Album). Dee Dee captured the hearts of audiences worldwide in “The Wiz” with her signature song, “If You Believe.” According to Nick Ashford of Ashford and Simpson, Dee Dee’s rendition “Personified a generation and gave us all hope.” Dee Dee Bridgewater will appear as the special guest soloist with the Brazosport Jazz Orchestra on January 20!
