Please… not the day of the concert.
4) Sharing is Caring: PLEASE share the opportunity, but… don’t give away the keys to the kingdom. In other words, let people know how to sign up and pay themselves but *don’t send them the actual Zoom link* Every home tuning in should be paying. Thanks – You’re Amazing!
5) Be ready for Imperfection: Ann will be amazing… but it’s Zoom which can have issues and glitches. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
6) What to expect: I do want this mostly to be about music so expect about an hour of actual music. Also it’s good for you to know going in… you’ll be on mute most of time but I will give you the ability unmute inbetween songs to applaud. Feel free to type in the Chat section (applause, song requests, questions, etc) which they may or may not see or respond to during the show – but they will get a transcript afterward. I’m a typer so will be saying hello to you cuties during the performance.

“For sheer vocal beauty, no contemporary singer matches Ms. Callaway.”
– Stephen Holden, New York Times
“Great is one of the most over-used words in the dictionary but just as Ella Fitzgerald was the greatest jazz singer of her era, so too is
the magnificent Ann Hampton Callaway of hers.”
– Musical Theatre Review
