A highly respected and accomplished vocalist, Vivian Sessoms has collaborated with an impressive list of artists as wide ranging as Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan, Donna Summer, P.Diddy, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Michael Jackson, Chris Botti and Cher, and her voice has also been featured in the music of countless well-known recordings and commercial jingles. But, she is also an important and well regarded jazz singer. Noted music blog Gina Loves Jazz says, “She can both sound like an angel, but also more of a siren where necessary, but never takes it too far, which is highly appreciated. She’s not only a brilliant singer, but also a veritable songwriter.” Not to be missed..
