Lavay Smith, Denise Perrier, Tammy Hall, Lisa Ferraro, Branice McKenzie, Kitt Weagent—any one of these divas could command the price of admission, but tonight these six superbly talented women, with hearts as big as their voices, band together to raise money for a diva and a daughter impacted by cancer. Proceeds will help with the medical costs of musician Erika Luckett battling ovarian cancer, and care for three year old Alma who recently lost her mother Hillary Williams to oral cancer.

Lavay embodies a modern take on the classic jazz and blues queen in the authentic style of the 1940s and 1950s, with a luscious voice recalling both Bessie Smith and Dinah Washington. Seattle Times calls her, "hands-down the best thing to come out of the jump/swing revival . . . the gal can sing her tail off." Blessed with a rich contralto voice and the ability to sing ballads and Blues with equal artistry, Denise has spent most of her thirty-year career performing in the San Francisco Bay Area and touring Europe, Latin America, and Asia. A truly versatile pianist, Tammy captivates lovers of Jazz, Brazilian, or Classical with a never-ostentatious virtuosity characteristic of only the best of the best. Lisa, a jazz vocalist hailing from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and the evening's organizer, will ply her soulful original style on a number of solo tunes. Branice brings her incredible four octave voice and magnificent song stylings as heard on the theatrical stage and international tours with Harry Belafonte, Roberta Flack, Hugh Masekela and Dianne Reeves. A consummate performer, jazz vocalist Kitt uses her distinctive, sultry purr to embrace her audience in thrilling warmth and a deep range of emotion.

These ladies can sing and play—you're in for an exceptional night of vocal & piano performance from some of the best in the business.
