BENEFITING: BETTER BEDREST INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 19, 2011
For more than 20 years, diva Julia Nixon has been a fixture on the Washington, DC music scene and beyond. "Julia & Company" was the resident group at the popular Mr. Henry's nightclub. Her tremendous vocal power has... inspired comparisons with artists such as Aretha Franklin and Tina Turner and earned the lead role in the Broadway production “Dreamgirls.”
Julia has an impressive 4½ octave range, and with Leontyne Price as one of her idols, as a young girl she spent 7 years of her life studying opera. Julia attended the North Carolina School of the Arts until Southern soul and the Motown sound won her over. These experiences contribute greatly to her versatility and emotional depth. Whether an intimate audience at Washington’s well renowned Blues Alley or 6’000 at New York’s celebrated Radio City Music Hall, Julia’s quality consistently garners praise .
