Ife Jacobs returns to Blue Strawberry after her much-talked-about debut performance. This time, the songstress serves up her own brand of hot buttered soul to pay homage to those unsung heroes of R&B, pop, and soul music.
“I wanted to recognize those dynamic vocalists that have inspired me as an artist,” Ife shares.
It was the Roberta Flack classic, 'Killing Me Softly', beautifully performed during her breakout performance at the venue, that got many people talking.
With warm, sultry tones and heartfelt phrasing, this daughter of soul emotes the heart of American Soul Music. She promises a collection of soul classics from such unheralded artists as Broadway’s sweet sensation Stephanie Mills, soul & jazz siren Miki Howard, and the virtuosic Roberta Flack to name just a few.
Under the musical direction of Kevin Manso with The All-Purpose Band, Ife Jacobs continues to soar musically, echoing those voices of ladies who helped to redefine soulful, classic rhythm and blues.
