Karine Hannah is an acclaimed singer, recording artist with top 10 Billboard Chart hits and is often mistaken for Barbara Streisand (from the 70’s). She spoke to us about her upcoming performance at Feinstein’s /54 Below “Guilty Pleasures.” Hard one to track down, but you can always count on her to be warm and engaging.
Hannah remembers her mother affectionately and what comes to mind is the radio music playing in the background. Her mother’s music was woven into the tapestry of Hannah’s voyage into adulthood. Songs she would never admit to listening to, as they were not her generation, but they became an intimate part of her memory and what she calls guilty pleasures.
Those lucky enough to be able to attend her upcoming performance will get a sample of these songs performed as only Hannah can deliver. Who doesn’t remember Earth Wind and Fire, Don Henley, Leo Sayer, Elton John, Barry Manilow and The Little River Band to name a few? We will not give away specific songs.
High School years and the songs we heard are some of the most vivid memories most will carry with them. Come reminisce and get Hannah’s signature hug as she embraces the audience – you!
All proceeds are going to the Manhattan Children’s Center, a school for children with special needs and autism spectrum disorders.
