About the show.

Support The Cabaret by attending an evening of beloved Broadway songs sung by Heather Headley.

Tony and Grammy Award winner Heather Headley presents an evening of beloved Broadway songs, as well as several personal selections, arranged specifically for her unmatched vocal talents. One of the most recognizable and celebrated voices on Broadway, she made her Broadway debut as “Nala” in the original Broadway cast of Disney’s The Lion King and went on to win both Tony and Drama Desk Awards for her critically-acclaimed portrayal of the title role in Aida. She also earned an Olivier Award nomination for her West End stage debut in The Bodyguard and returned to Broadway most recently in the Tony-winning revival of The Color Purple.

Ms. Headley is also a Grammy winning recording artist for her R&B/Gospel record Audience of One. She is Andrea Bocelli’s first choice as a featured guest artist on his North American tour dates, where fans are routinely brought to their feet in rousing ovations after her solo pieces. Heather will bring these experiences, styles, and influences into the arrangements for The Cabaret’s Annual Fundraiser Gala, making for a truly uplifting evening.


Known for...

  • The Lion King (Nala)
  • Aida (Won Tony Award and Drama Desk Award for her performance as Aida)
  • The Color Purple (Shug Avery)
  • Grammy nominee for solo album This Is Who I Am
  • Grammy winner for solo album Audience of One
