Featured Singer: Paula Saunders
Throughout the evening, jazz artist Paula Saunders and her band will fill the air with classics and her smooth, contralto voice. Saunders has been compared to such voices as Lalah Hathaway, Anita baker, and Oleta Adams. Whether she’s rocking the house with an upbeat tune from Ella Fitzgerald or serenading the crowd with the smooth sounds of a Sarah Vaughan classic, Paula’s voice is sure to capture—and keep—your attention.
Paula’s claim to fame has been the ability to sing beautifully in the alto and tenor range, something uncommon among female vocalists. She performs regularly with other well-known artists in Kansas City. She has had the honor of opening for chart topping artists such as Joe, Kenny Latimore, and Mint Condition. In October 2014, she released her first projected entitled, "Introducing Paula Saunders."
