A fundraiser for WPPAC showcasing one of the greatest voices of our time; Linda Eder’s diverse repertoire spans Broadway, Standards, Pop, Country and Jazz. As the tragic character “Lucy” in the Broadway musical Jekyll & Hyde, from composer Frank Wildhorn, Eder blew the roof off of New York’s Plymouth Theatre each night as she belted out signature songs “Someone Like You” and “A New Life”. Her Broadway debut, for which she was rewarded with a Drama Desk nomination, sent her already rapidly rising star blazing across the sky, securing her spot as one of America’s most beloved singers and dynamic live performers. “What do we mean when we use the word perfection? The question arises every time I watch the pop singer Linda Eder….” Stephen Holden, The New York Times
Eder launched her recording career in 1991 with her self-titled debut album and soon established a vital niche as America’s most popular and acclaimed new interpreter of pop standards and theatrical songs with 15 solo albums and 12 musical recordings. Those albums highlight Eder’s abundant vocal gifts as well as her skill for delivering dramatic, emotionally resonant interpretations of familiar songs while making them her own. She followed up with The Other Side of Me, a country pop blend of contemporary music – including a song written by Linda. And, in June 2010, Linda and Clay Aiken covered Roy Orbison’s “Crying” as a duet on Clay’s new album Tried & True.
The concert stage remains the mainstay of Eder’s career. She has performed for sold-out crowds in venues across the country and throughout Europe. She has been featured on numerous PBS television concert specials including Clay Aiken’s Tried & True; Hallelujah Broadway; Linda Eder: The PBS Concert; Best of Broadway: Broadway’s Leading Ladies; Best of Broadway: Love Songs; Jim Brickman plays The Disney Songbook; and more.
All proceeds to benefit the White Plains Performing Arts Center, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit arts organization.
