Great Ladies Of Song Join actress/singer Gloria Reuben as she returns to Blues Alley for her show Great Ladies Of Song! From the Canadian greats like Joni, KD and Alanis, to the classic dames Ella and Sarah, Gloria’s show will be a fun and memorable celebration of female singers and songwriters. Gloria is an Emmy Award and Golden Globe Award nominated actress with acclaimed roles in, among other TV series, ER, Raising The Bar, Falling Skies, and Mr. Robot. The highlight of her extensive film career was co-starring alongside Daniel Day-Lewis and Sally Field in Steven Spielberg’s film LINCOLN, where she portrayed Elizabeth Keckley. Music has always been a big part of this Toronto-born multitalented artist’s life. She even took time off from her acting career to tour as a backup singer for Tina Turner in Ms. Turner’s tour 24/7!
The intimate and iconic Blues Alley is the perfect venue for Gloria to share her unique style and sound, honoring the Great Ladies Of Song. Her most recent jazz album, Perchance to Dream, was produced by Grammy Award winning producer Marty Ashby. As All About Jazz wrote: “Though the actress/singer is more well-known as an actress, she could have just as easily broken through as a singer.
This CD will definitely cause music fans to reconsider their thinking regarding Gloria Reuben. They will now be forced to consider her as more than just a famous actress who sometimes sings.”
