AN UNFORGETTABLE NAT KING COLE CHRISTMAS STARRING EVAN TYRONE MARTIN -
Chicago leading man Evan Tyrone Martin (JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, DREAMGIRLS, SIDE SHOW) warmly resonates the velvety vocal style of musical legend Nat King Cole. Chicago Tribune calls Martin "Destined for Stardom: One of the Hot New Faces of Chicago Theatre," and BCR News praises, "Martin's vocal ease would have done Nat King Cole proud." Martin intimately relates Cole's musical journey: from his upbringing in the Chicago church, to shuffling along the jazz scene, to his emergence as a popular music icon. Classic tunes include "Straighten Up and Fly Right," "L-O-V-E," and "Smile."
