Folly Frolic Benefit Concert to Feature Globally Recognized Blues & Gospel Vocalist, Oleta Adams

November 17, 2018 @ 8:00 PM CST

This year’s Folly Frolic artist is globally recognized blues & gospel vocalist, Oleta Adams!
Since the runaway success of her 1990 debut album Circle of One (which went Platinum), and the impassioned hit single “Get Here” (the Brenda Russell composition that became an unofficial anthem of the 1991 Gulf War) Oleta Adams has inspired a growing legion of fans in the U.S. and Europe with journeys of the heart via songs that draw deeply from her roots in gospel, while crossing effortlessly into the realms of soul, R&B, urban, and popular music. Her success, nurtured by worldwide tours with Tears for Fears, Phil Collins, Michael Bolton, and Luther Vandross, has been solidified by four Grammy nominations and a seemingly bottomless well of creative energy.
Oleta’s performance for the Folly Frolic also helps to raise funds for the Folly Theater to continue its programs like the Folly Jazz Series, Folly Kids’ Series, and maintenance to the 118-year-old building! The performance also coincides wonderfully with the reopening of the theater after a $2.5 million dollar renovation to the Lobbies and Shareholders Space.
