Arlington Heights, IL – Michael Ingersoll and Metropolis present Artists Lounge Live at Metropolis, concluding the current season with Goodbye Yellow Brick Road: Jess Godwin Sings Elton John on Thursday, July 6, 2017. Artists Lounge Live’s next season will include tributes to Neil Sedaka, Bing Crosby, Aretha Franklin, and more.
Singer-songwriter and nationally-touring recording artist Jess Godwin (iTunes: Fool Me Once, Be a Light) pours her vulnerable heart and dynamic voice into Elton John’s greatest hits. Sir Elton’s simple, soulful love songs captivate audiences worldwide. His sometimes eccentric, always heartfelt blend of classical, gospel, and rock perfectly suits the sensitive and courageous Godwin. Tony-Award Winner and Jess Godwin fan Kristin Chenoweth lauds, “I just love her voice… she gets it.” Godwin shines playing piano-driven, chart-topping hits like “Your Song,” “Rocket Man,” and “Benny and the Jets.”
Goodbye Yellow Brick Road: Jess Godwin Sings Elton John will be at Metropolis on Thursday, July 6, 2017 at 7:30 P.M. Tickets are $45, Stage Tables $50. All tickets can be purchased at MetropolisArts.com or by calling the Box Office at 847.577.2121.
