2011 BeanTown Jazz FestivalOleta Adams
Please see the full events listing for upcoming events.
Oleta Adams has inspired a growing legion of fans in the U.S. and Europe with journeys of the heart via songs that draw deeply from her roots in gospel, while crossing effortlessly into the realms of soul, R&B, urban, and popular music.
Adams's 1990 debut album Circle of One (which went platinum), and the impassioned hit single "Get Here"—the Brenda Russell composition that became an unofficial anthem of the 1991 Gulf War—built her fan base. Her success, nurtured by worldwide tours with Tears for Fears, Phil Collins, Michael Bolton, and Luther Vandross, has been solidified by four Grammy nominations and a seemingly bottomless well of creative energy.
