Frenchie Davis – Grammy nominated, Star of Broadway’s RENT & Finalist from NBC’s The VOICE & American Idol
About The Concert
At 7 p.m. Sunday, May 17, 2015, the incredible Frenchie Davis will join the San Diego Women’s Chorus (SDWC) for an exclusive performance at the Balboa Theatre. This exhilarating concert, “Broadway, Our Way” is a fundraising event benefiting the Lesbian Health Initiative of the San Diego Human Dignity Foundation.
“Broadway, Our Way” will present songs from the stage that give voice to the pivotal experiences and emotions of the human experience through the lens of women’s lives. From tender torch songs to spectacular showstoppers and everything in between, the audience will journey through love, loss, trials and triumphs. “Broadway, Our Way” will include some of the most beloved songs from contemporary and classic stage productions, including “Funny Girl”, “Into the Woods”, and “Wicked”, as well as some less obvious choices that will be pleasant surprises for the audience. The entire program is a fresh twist on the typical Broadway-themed revue, with exciting and beautiful vocal harmonies you don’t get from solo performances.
“San Diego Human Dignity Foundation is so incredibly proud to partner once again with the San Diego Women’s Chorus for this powerful event,” said SDHDF Executive Director John Brown. ” ‘Broadway, Our Way’ will be a tremendous event to remember. The wonderfully talented San Diego Women’s Chorus teamed with the one and only Frenchie Davis promises to deliver a diverse and delightful show that all will enjoy.”
