Julia Nixon @ the Lincoln Theater

20 11 2007

After an invite from Asian Mistress, this past Saturday night I went down to the Lincoln Theater on U Street and caught a one night only performance featuring singer Julia Nixon. Julia was promoting the release of her new album, Keepin’ on Track.

For those of you who don’t know, Julia at one point starred as Effie in Dreamgirls on Broadway.

I arrived a few minutes early for the performance, and was able to spend a few minutes at the reception beforehand (open bar!) I had the pleasure of meeting blogger Asian Mistress for the first time, as well as bumping in to Listen to Leon and INPY.

The show was great – Julia has an AMAZING voice. Julia did not sing the music – she was the music. There is nothing that woman couldn’t sing, and with her four octave range, we got quite the sampling of her capabilities. The live band on stage was the perfect complement to her performance, and Julia had a voice that could make you cry. (I must say I did get a bit teary during a few of her numbers.)

Overall, a great performance.
