Powell comes to Pulaski Theatre

Self-dubbed “the chocolate goddess of soul,” seasoned singer Jane Powell will give her last scheduled Virginia performance of 2009 Friday, Oct. 2 at the Pulaski Theatre.
Distinguished by her soulful style and a five-octave vocal range, Powell includes jazz, R&B, gospel, and even reggae in her repertoire. Her performances bring to mind other musical “goddesses” like Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin and Sarah Vaughn.
Powell is characterized by her musical flexibility, her playful stage presence, and her spontaneous sense of humor.
While she began her singing career in Roanoke she has since entertained diverse audiences on both land and sea. In fact, she is currently a featured entertainer aboard a Norwegian Cruise Line ship.
Powell has performed at corporate functions, in nightclubs, at resort hotels including the Greenbrier, and at large outdoor festivals and fairs.
The National Association for Campus Activities, comprised of 1,300 colleges and universities, voted her Entertainer of the Year in 1990; Jazz Artist of the Year in 1990, 1991, 1992, 1994 and 1995; and winner of the Performing Arts/Music Award in 1992 and 1993, making her the most awarded performer in the organization’s history.
Additionally, she has worked with or been the opening act for many artists such as Lou Rawls, B. J. Thomas, Melba Moore, The Crusaders, and Ray Charles. "She stole the night from a legend,” The Washington Post said of her performance opening for Ray Charles.
Powell also sang in a national McDonald’s commercial, and appeared in the films “Marie” and “The Bachelor.” In May 2007, she performed at the state capitol in Richmond for Queen Elizabeth II.
A natural artist who is true to herself, Powell possesses depth of experience which allows her to draw on the rich traditions in popular music, blend them with her unique vocal abilities and create music that uplifts any audience.
The Pulaski Theatre is located at 14 Main St. in Pulaski. Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. concert are $15 in advance and $18 at the door. They are available at Coffee Buy the Book (next to the theater) and Martin’s Pharmacy (400 North Washington Ave.) or at www.pulaskitheatre.org.
