Cactus Theater hosts acclaimed Whitney Houston tribute
From the Cactus Theater
Showtime Australia’s acclaimed tribute concert The Greatest Love of All: A Tribute to Whitney Houston starring Belinda Davids is making its 2nd visit to the USA this September.
Following rave reviews of its debut tour last year, a five-piece band, backing vocalists and troupe of choreographed dancers and acrobats will again accompany Davids on stage in the full-scale concert production which also boasts state-of-the-art sound, custom-designed lighting, LED walls, theatrical effects and a swath of delicately hand-crafted gowns and costumes.
All of Houston’s most memorable tunes are lined up for Davids’ treatment during the two-hour production, including pop highlights I Wanna Dance With Somebody, How Will I Know and I’m Every Woman, favourites from her movie career such as Queen of the Night and Exhale (Shoop Shoop) and of course all her most iconic and timeless ballads including I Have Nothing, Didn’t We Almost Have it All, Run to You, One Moment in Time and I Will Always Love You.
Says Davids, “U.S. audiences are amazing, they truly appreciate Whitney’s legacy and her music is very personal to them and you can feel that from the stage. To look out and see people feeling every note and nuance and emotion that you sing is so intimate. That’s what it’s all about. I can’t wait to go back.”
