Alicia Olatuja

When: Fri., Feb. 14, 6 & 8:30 p.m. 2020

Alicia Olatuja was immersed in gospel, soul, jazz and classical music in her youth; went on to earn a master’s degree in classical voice/opera from the Manhattan School of Music; and has become a strong and versatile singer. Her multifaceted talent is on display on her 2019 sophomore album, Intuition: Songs From the Minds of Women, on which she breathes new life into works by women artists such as smooth-jazz singer Sade, bluesy folk songstress Tracy Chapman and experimental pop star Kate Bush. Possessing a voice that Downbeat magazine calls “rich as coffee, fluid as mercury,” Olatuja returns to the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts, following a 2016 performance with jazz pianist Billy Childs.

Price: $35.
