University of Hawai‘i of Mānoa
Mānoa Jazz & Heritage Festival
Saturday • October 26, 2013 • 7:30 PM • Orvis Auditorium
Join us for the 6th annual Mānoa Jazz & Heritage Festival. An evening of music from this year's featured guest artist, Nnenna Frelon, a six-time GRAMMY Award-nominee. An accomplished singer, composer, producer, and arranger (as well as budding actress), Freelon has dedicated herself to educating young people, both musicians and non-musicians. Her messages reach into the very soul of the person listening, encouraging and motivating them toward constructive change and the creation of positive energy.
Freelon made her feature film debut in the Mel Gibson hit, What Women Want and sang a remake of Sinatra`s classic, ‘Fly Me To The Moon’ for The Visit starring Billy Dee Williams. She has twice been nominated for the "Lady of Soul" Soul Train Award. Freelon has performed and toured with a veritable whoʻs who in jazz, from Ray Charles and Ellis Marsalis to Al Jarreau and George Benson.
