Next Friday, October 19, the world-renowned singer, songwriter, and actress Shoshana Bean will launch this season’s LIVE! from the Rainbow Room concert series with an intimate performance inside one of New York’s most glamorous and iconic settings. Set 65 stories above Rockefeller Center with panoramic views in every direction, the Rainbow Room will host Shoshana for a one-night-only performance backed by a 13-piece band for 250 guests.
“We are thrilled to welcome a tremendous talent like Shoshana to the stage to kick off a new season of LIVE! from the Rainbow Room,” said Nick Mautone, managing director of the Rainbow Room. “Since opening in 1934, Rainbow Room has been famous for hosting legendary performers. The LIVE! from the Rainbow Room series is a way for us to offer our guests the rare opportunity to experience one of today’s great voices in a stunningly intimate setting.”
As for Bean, she is “thrilled and honored to be performing in this legendary venue. I can’t think of a more perfect or intimate setting for our classic and nostalgic sound,” she said.
A multifaceted performer, Bean has held top positions for four independent solo releases on iTunes R&B, Blues, and Jazz charts in both the United States and United Kingdom. Her 2014 release Shadows to Light earned her a Hot Shot debut at #10 on the Billboard Blues charts, and her fourth and most recent studio album, Spectrum, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Jazz Charts.
Bean is a veteran of the Broadway stage, having made her debut in the original cast of Hairspray and starring as the very first replacement for Elphaba in Wicked. She has sold out solo concerts around the globe, lent her voice to countless films and TV shows, amassed millions of YouTube views, and performed with Ariana Grande, David Foster, Postmodern Jukebox, Brian McKnight, and Michael Jackson.
