Event Details

It's no wonder The New York Times raves: "Darlene Love's thunderbolt voice is as embedded in the history of rock and roll as Eric Clapton's guitar or Bob Dylan's lyrics." Through the years, Darlene Love continues to captivate audiences worldwide with her warm, gracious stage presence and sensational performances.

Since the early sixties, as part of Phil Spector's wall of sound hit factory, this great lady has done it all...from major motion pictures like the highly successful Lethal Weapon series to Broadway hits like Hairspray and Grease. She even starred as herself in Leader Of The Pack, credited as Broadway's first `jukebox musical.' Darlene has appeared on numerous television programs, running the gamut from her weekly appearances on Shindig to a recent guest spot on the PBS special entitled Women Who Rock.

An autobiographical film is currently on the drawing board and another recent film that prominently features Darlene landed a distribution deal at the Sundance Festival - Twenty Feet to Stardom - is now in theatres across the country. The soundtrack CD will be released on June 22 and her book - "My name is Love, Darlene Love" - will be reissued to help promote the film.

Darlene recently appeared on all the major network talk shows to promote it all - including a chat and performance with David Letterman. She will make some 100 appearances in the coming season.

Darlene's background vocals with The Blossoms, for The Righteous Brothers, Sam Cook, Dionne Warwick, Marvin Gaye, and Elvis Presley (to name but a few) set the stage for her emergence as a star in her own right. She has truly walked that twenty feet to take the spotlight as her own.

Her Billboard hits include: He's A Rebel, The Boy I'm Gonna Marry, Da Doo Ron Ron, Wait `Til My Bobby Gets Home, He's Sure the Boy I Love and the #1 holiday classic Christmas Baby Please Come Home, a song that she performs annually with Paul Shaffer and the CBS Symphony Orchestra on The Late Show With David Letterman ( this December marks her 27th appearance).

Darlene Love received her industry's highest award when Better Midler, a great fan of her work, inducted her into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. During the celebration, the two ladies enjoyed performing "He's A Rebel" together.

As part of the festivities, Darlene also sang "He's A Fine, Fine Boy" backed by another distinguished fan, Bruce Springsteen. Another friend and fan, Stevie Van Sandt has championed her over the years and pushed her to come to New York. He wrote the the song "All Alone on Christmas" especially for Darlene to sing in the movie Home Alone 11.

Rolling Stone Magazine has proclaimed Darlene Love to be "one of the greatest singers of all time" and that certainly rings true, but perhaps Paul Shaffer says it even more concisely: "Darlene Love is Rock N' Roll!
