Singer, songwriter, and keyboardist Sheléa returns to the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts with “Pretty World: Through the Eyes of Alan & Marilyn Bergman,” on Saturday, June 25, at 7:30 pm. This special evening features Sheléa, a protégé of Quincy Jones, performing songs written by Alan and Marilyn Bergman, the Oscar-winning married couple whose lyrics to songs such as “The Way We Were,” “The Windmills of Your Mind,” and “You Don’t Bring Me Flowers” earned them induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
With widespread comparison to the vocal expertise of legendary Whitney Houston, and the piano prowess of Alicia Keys, it is no surprise that artist and actress, Sheléa has garnered endorsements from the likes of Stevie Wonder, Mary J.Blige, Missy Elliott, David Foster, Queen Latifah, Jamie Foxx and Jennifer Hudson. Blending traditional pop, jazz, R&B and soul, Sheléa brings a contemporary edge to classics, and a classic touch to contemporary pop standards. With years of making a name for herself as a vocal powerhouse, having performed twice at the White House; Library of Congress; Carnegie Hall; the Kennedy Center, 2020 marked her acting debut as Dorinda Clark in “The Clark Sisters: The First Ladies of Gospel.”
