Rhonda Ross with special guest David Raleigh

SATURDAY, AUGUST 26 | 6:30-8:30 pm | OUTDOORS @ 25 JOBS | FREE

“If you want to understand electricity, get yourself a seat anywhere Rhonda Ross performs!” -NightLife Exchange

Singer-songwriter, Rhonda Ross, is an international Social-Artist, who explores the social environment around her and her relationship to it – questioning constructions of race, gender, sexuality and spirituality through her lyrics. Her original music lives in the gap between jazz, funk and gospel while her lyrics delve into life’s biggest questions and answers. From racism, sexism, and homophobia to the never-ending quest for self-love and deeper spirituality, Rhonda uses her music to ask “In the midst of THIS, how can we still be free?”

Rhonda’s music flows straight from her essence and her bright spirit uplifts everyone in the room. With a crown of natural hair, Rhonda graces the stage with the gravitas and glamour of a modern-day queen. As the only child of Diana Ross and Motown Founder Berry Gordy, it has become evident that Rhonda not only has the talent, but the significance to carry on her parents’ legacy, all the while establishing her own unique musical destination. More about Rhonda Ross

Rhonda’s most recent release, In Case You Didn’t Know is available everywhere music is sold.

Rhonda will also welcome special guest, David Raleigh. On the surface, Raleigh exudes a romantic youthfulness with his impeccable piano/vocal prowess. Look a little deeper and it’s clear that this New York City local, lauded by Time Out Magazine as the ‘Nat King Cole’ for a new generation, has the ‘old soul’ songwriting sensibilities of some of the greatest performers of our time. More about David Raleigh

Bring chairs, blankets and picnics. All outdoor events are rain or shine! In the event of rain the concert will be held indoors in the theater.

 

This concert is made possible thanks to the generosity of David C. Bohnett.
