The Lone Tree Arts Center, presents Oleta Adams, part of Gerald Albright’s Lone Tree Jazz Series. Vocalist, Oleta draws from her roots in gospel, soul, R&B, Urban, and popular music.
Since the runaway success of her 1990 debut album Circle of One (which went Platinum), and the impassioned hit single “Get Here” (which became an unofficial anthem of the 1991 Gulf War), Oleta Adams takes listeners on journeys of the heart via songs that draw deeply from her roots in gospel, while crossing effortlessly into the realms of soul, R&B, urban, and popular music. Her success was first nurtured by worldwide tours with Tears for Fears, Phil Collins, Michael Bolton, and Luther Vandross, and was solidified by four Grammy nominations and more than two and a half million records sold.
Through the years she has recorded duets with the likes of Al Jarreau, David Sanborn, Toots Thielmans, Shirley Ceasar, and of course the infamous songs she recorded with Tears for Fears. Oleta’s music is featured in Hollywood movies Corrina, Corrina, Sleeping with the Enemy, Jason’s Lyric, and her vocals were instrumental in setting the tone in How Stella Got Her Groove Back. In 2019, Oleta was inducted into the American Jazz Walk of Fame at the American Jazz Museum in Kansas City, MO, and in 2017, Oleta was the honoree of the Legends Award at the televised Black Music Honors, acknowledging her influence and significant music contributions to African American culture and American music worldwide.
