Jennifer Holliday

The Tony and Grammy Award winning Broadway icon

Tony and Grammy Award winning Broadway icon Jennifer Holliday makes her Australian debut, exclusively for Sydney Cabaret Festival. With 2 Grammy Awards, 9 studio albums and 5 top 10 singles on the R&B and Dance Charts to her credit, Jennifer will dazzle with her powerhouse vocals in an electrifying evening of Broadway, jazz standards, originals and soulful pop.

Her show stopping, heart-wrenching performance of And I Am Telling You, I’m Not Going in the original production of Dreamgirls is considered one of the all-time great performances in a Broadway musical. She recently returned to Broadway in the role of sexy cabaret singer Shug Avery in the Tony-winning revival of The Color Purple. She has been proclaimed a Broadway legend by critics and fans alike, and you, and you…you’re gonna love her.

Also. in a special one-off event, join Jennifer Holliday as she mentors four emerging Australian performers in an open masterclass. Having been mentored herself by the legendary Michael Bennett, you’ll experience her incredible process and gain insights into acting through song and song interpretation.
