MIDDLE TOWNSHIP – On Friday, September 2, the Middle Township Performing Arts Center will be filled with fans of two rising young stars in the music industry and a veteran Broadway tap dancer, who will present a performance to benefit the youth of Cape May County via the programs and services sponsored by the Concerned Citizens of Whitesboro.
Twenty-four-year-old Nadjah Nicole and band will cross the Delaware River to once again perform in cool Cape May County. In April, the NBC Emmy award-winning TV show talent with an impressive resume of covers and original music mesmerized Exit Zero Jazz Festival goers with her soothing, soulful and melodic vocal style.
Also performing will be Darius Coleman, recording artist and songwriter from FOX’s hit show “Empire” who has been dubbed a “singer, songwriter, superstar force to be reckoned with.” His brand of R&B/Soul is captivating and unique. His voice resonates with fire and passion and is sure to inspire as he blazes a trail of his own, so be at this show. Darius has the goods and plans to deliver a memorable performance.
And as a triple treat, Karen Callaway Williams, a New Jersey native, will be gracing the stage of the PAC with her “smiling eyes and happy feet!” The producer of “Rhythms for Ruby” and the author of “Gabriella’s Tap Shoes” and “Rhythms for Ruby” (in print and audio book), Karen is known for being both the first African-American female tap dancer and dance captain in “Riverdance – The Show” and the only African-American female tap dancer and dance captain in “Riverdance – On Broadway.” She has tap danced around the world and back to perform at the place she calls home for this benefit.
Tickets for the 7 p.m. show are $25 until the day of the performance, when they rise to $35. Call (609) 463-1924.
