Nicole Vanessa Ortiz, fresh on the heels of starring in Spamilton and Smokey Joe's Cafe, makes her Feinstein's/54 Below solo concert debut in Becoming Her: A Diva's Tribute. Since she was a child, female vocalists have inspired Nicole to use her gifts as an artist onstage. She landed on American Idol as a finalist, won the grand prize on The Wendy Williams Show singing competition, and made such an impression singing on BET's Apollo Live that Gladys Knight personally invited her on tour!
No longer the 4 year old singing along to the Bodyguard soundtrack (matching the singers note for note), Nicole will now be celebrating women in music whose iconic anthems have shaped the way we experience love, heartache, and triumph. Hits from stars such as Tina Turner, Whitney Houston, and Cher will showcase her voice and honor the divas who've inspired her.
