"You can't fake this music. You might be a great singer or a great musician but, in the need, that's got nothing to do with it. It's how you connect to the songs and to the history behind them." - Etta James
Vika Bull one of Australia's most respected, powerful soul singers, is set to tell the story of one of the most influential soul singers of all time: Etta James.
At Last: The Etta James Story written by acclaimed UK author John Livings will be on stage for a limited 2 week season. You have the chance to buy your seats first during the pre sale.
Music's original bad girl was Etta James. She influenced a vast array of artists from a variety of genres and musical styles including The Rolling Stones, Diana Ross, Janis Joplin, Gladys Knight, Stevie Wonder and more... many more. Etta has been recognized as bridging the gap between rhythm and blues, rock and roll to pop, inspiring the careers of a new generation of artists from Christina Aguilera, and the late Amy Winehouse.
The narrative concert will see Vika put her heart into telling the story of Etta's turbulent life and give over her soul to voice Etta's most beloved songs including 'Tell Mama', 'Something's Got A Hold On Me', 'Pushover', the heart rending 'I'd Rather Go Blind', her iconic signature song 'At Last' and many more
Backed by a sizzling hot 8-piece band, Vika Bull will perform Etta James songs with raw emotion, punctuated by an intimate telling of Etta's life.
This show will have you out of your seat and dancing in the aisles!
