Wendy Moten in the Theater
November 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Wendy Moten’s voice has been called “one of the natural wonders of our age.” This one-night-only concert will include songwriter Richard Whiting hits including “He’s Funny That Way,” “My Ideal,” “Miss Brown,” and “Too Marvelous For Words.” Ms. Moten will also perform the Janis Ian classic “At Seventeen,” Paul Simon’s “Still Crazy After All These Years,” and one of her most popular songs from “The Voice,” “Somewhere Over The Rainbow.”
Wendy Moten is an exceptional, adaptable singer, a pure musical spirit, and a bridge from Memphis to Nashville to the rest of the world. Respected in the music industry as a consummate professional for years, the wider public discovered her talent and charm through her remarkable run on NBC’s “The Voice” in 2021. She turned all four judges’ chairs on her blind audition and ended up in second place overall – unprecedented for an artist in her fifties. A native of Memphis, Moten sang R&B on a major label in the ‘90s then moved to Nashville to become an in-demand harmony singer. She spent 15 years as the key support voice for Julio Iglesias. And she has toured with Martina McBride, Tim McGraw & Faith Hill, and Vince Gill. She’s performed as a soloist on the Grand Ole Opry multiple times and been a featured artist in the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s Musician Spotlight series. In 2019 she joined the Grammy-winning Nashville western swing band The Time Jumpers.
