Neighborhood Concert: Alicia Olatuja
Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture
Singer Alicia Olatuja electrified a crowd of a million people on the National Mall at the 2013 presidential inauguration with her richly textured, show-stopping solo with the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir. Olatuja sings with a strong, lustrous tone, and mixes elements of classical, jazz, gospel, and pop into her fluid vocalism. Her busy performance calendar includes collaborating with bassist and husband Michael Olatuja as the Olatuja Project; performing as a soloist with the Juilliard Jazz Ensemble; and providing back-up vocals for Chaka Khan, Somi, and Christian McBride.
