WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

THIS PERFORMANCE HAS BEEN CANCELLED. It all starts with the voice, a soulful instrument that is both powerful yet strikingly vulnerable, an engaging gift that transcends musical genres and industry trends. For acclaimed performer Elisabeth Withers, that voice and all-around talent garnered her a prestigious Tony Award nomination for her role as the seductive scene-stealer Shug Avery in Oprah Winfrey's Broadway mega-hit The Color Purple. Now the Joliet, Illinois-born singer/songwriter is set to release her debut solo album It Can Happen To Anyone with the legendary Blue Note Records. Like Elisabeth's much-lauded theatrical work, the album represents a labor of love for the vocalist who has worked with the likes of the late great Luther Vandross, Mary J. Blige, Brenda Russell and Cher.
