Can you imagine three of the most distinguished female singers perfoming on the same stage? The 29th MIMF proudly presents superstars Patti Austin, Janis Siegel and Elisa Chan!
During her seemingly timeless career, Patti Austin has conquered pop, R&B, jazz, swing, and a variety of dance genres. Austin, according to the Dallas Morning News “can sing anything!” Featuring an exceptionally versatile voice described as “flawless, clear, powerful, full-bodied, and colourful,” she has recorded 17 solo albums and won a Grammy award for “Best Jazz Vocal Album”!
Janis Siegel is a master of the vocal jazz subgenre; ballads, scats, bop, she competently does them all. A founding member of the Manhattan Transfer—one of the world’s top vocal groups that garnered 10 Grammy Awards—Siegel has embarked on a distinguished solo career. Her finely crafted solo albums have enjoyed outstanding popularity and consistently received high critical praise.
One of the most respected figures in the Hong Kong music industry and a shining star on the Cantopop scene, Elisa Chan has entertained audiences for over 30 years! Best known for her duets with Leslie Cheung, her limitless passion and unique musical interpretations have entertained audiences worldwide. Ms. Chan easily commands a diverse musical repertoire that ranges from Western Pop and Jazz to Chinese Classics and Cantopop hits.
In the 100th anniversary of the birth of jazz legend Billie Holiday, these superstars will sing some of Holiday’s songs, paying tribute to this iconic singer. Don’t miss this chance of a lifetime!
