LEE HARTGRAVE TONIGHT
FAITH WINTHROP IS BACK AT THE RRAZZ ROOM
Faith Winthrop – Singer and Music teacher, not only sings the songs of others, but she has written many songs of her own that have been picked up by other singers.
She has had a tremendous impact on the music business – but, on the other hand – she says that trends have not really changed that much. And – Winthrop has the faith that the standards will never - ever go away. That’s why she is doing this special show this evening at The Rrazz Room about the songs of Johnny Mercer.
Mercer was one of the most prolific writers and performer of wonderful music during his time in the spotlight. And, you know what, his candle of Fame is still burning brightly. Faith is like Mercer, in that each song she gives the wonderful Mercer songs deep heartfelt feeling and imagination. You don’t feel that you are just listening to music – no – you’re just living it. I always marvel, at her superb and spirited style. You will be captivated too.
