A one-night-only chance to see three soul legends on one stage, as the talents of Brenda Russell, Angela Winbush and Regina Belle are showcased in three solo sets.

Brenda Russell’s hits like ‘So Good So Right’, ‘Get Here’ and ‘Piano In The Dark’ have embedded themselves in our culture over 40 years, and she continues to have an acclaimed career. She wrote and recorded the musical The Color Purple, which was nominated for a Grammy in 2016.

Angela Winbush rose to fame first in the early 80s as one half of the R&B duo René & Angela and has since scored hits as a solo artist selling over ten million albums and singles worldwide.

Spanning soul, jazz, urban and gospel music, Regina Belle has had a successful career of over 30 years. Getting her break opening for and recording with The Manhattans, Belle has since worked and performed with Ray Charles, Bobby Womack and Peabo Bryson.
