Ladies Sing the Blues
Four top KZN singers join forces to bring some of the world’s best loved songs to the stage in a new show, Ladies Sing the Blues. Erin Fourie, Tanya Nicolson, Grace Botha, and Helen Vermaak combine their extraordinary talents as they present an evening of Blues and Jazz songs spanning a century of music. From Billie Holliday to Amy Winehouse, and Ella Fitzgerald to Norah Jones, these four fabulous voices pay tribute to some of the world’s best singers and songs.
The show also shows the fun side of Jazz – that anything can be jazzed up, even Beyonce, Britney Spears and Cyndi Lauper!
Who could forget such classic numbers such as Cry Me a River, Georgia on my Mind, My Funny Valentine, I’ve Got You Under My Skin and Mack the Knife. These are complemented by dynamic versions of songs like Love and Affection by Joan Armatrading and Girls Just Want to Have Fun.
The show is directed by Peter Mitchell.
Tanya Nicolson started her musical theatre career at the tender age of 8yrs old with PACT. She gained a B.Dram drama degree at Stellenbosch University where she majored in Cabaret & Physical Theatre. Her first role straight out of university saw her play a female lead in David Kramer's District Six - The Musical. Immediately thereafter she starred in BBC's "Cavegirl" - a leading Teen series in the UK. Tanya then moved on to perform in musicals, children's theatre, film & television with the likes of Jonathan Roxmouth, Ian Von Memerty, and Pieter Toerien. Tanya also performs in a jazz/contemporary duo with St John Haw.
Erin Fourie has become one of KZN’s most popular performers, both at local music venues and in theatres. A former Idols top 7, she has a vocal and stylistic range that encompasses most genres from Rock to Jazz, with Musical Theatre thrown in. She has even been known to sing Country! A regular at the Hilton Arts Festival, Erin has had sold out shows for the last 3 years.
Grace Botha is a jazz musician who enjoys the stage and shares her renditions of well-known songs while usually accompanying herself on piano or guitar. She studied jazz formally at Howard College and amalgamates her love for jazz, pop, folk and soul. She is one half of the duo Sachet SA, has sung with Seb Goldswain, and opened for Jason Hartman.
Helen Vermaak has been joyfully involved in music all her life - singing, piano playing, shows, concerts, musical directing, choirs, teaching. It's a passion! From classical repertoire and opera to musicals and standards - the closer the audience to the stage the better she likes it. She has been musical director for shows such as Cabaret, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Grease, Godspell, West Side Story, and performed in Nunsense, Brel, Piaf, 100 Years of Broadway, and most recently in I Heart the 80’s.
