ROSE KINGSLEY, one of the world’s most celebrated opera singers, performed at the New York Metropolitan Opera House and has wowed audiences throughout Europe. Rose has shared the stage with such greats as Placido Domingo, Luciano Pavarotti, Bob Hope, and Frank Sinatra.
In addition to her Opera career, Rose began to feel a strong calling to the Blues, Jazz and Cabaret. Her June, 2015 New York City Cabaret Jazz debut at Cafe Noctambulo was hailed a great success! With Rose’s unique dramatic style the listener fully believes Rose is telling her own life story with every song. Rose debuted her “A Musical Tribute to Johnny Mercer” show at the Catalina Bar & Grill Jazz Club in Hollywood in October to a standing room- only audience.
“I have a strong feeling that I have witnessed the birth of a New York City Cabaret Star tonight.” -Robert Nicosia, Music Man Blog Review, NYC.
“Rose Kingsley offers a sublime and eclectic collection of cabaret and jazz with her new offering “This Is My Life.” Ms. Kingsley, although revered in Opera circles, is a welcomed and much-needed shining new star for jazz and cabaret aficionados.” 5 STARS. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS:
“Rose Kingsley made a name for herself as a 4 octave singer for the Metropolitan Opera before transitioning into the jazz idiom. Here, the diva is with a sensitive and adroit team of Bob Corwin/pianist, Danny Flahive/bass and Doug Dean/percussion who provide her with simpatico support on this collection of standards.” -JAZZ WEEKLY; George W. Harris
“Her voice has a fragile and delicate quality that works the vibrato well on “Here’s To Life” and “Send In the Clowns.” There’s a vulnerability to her voice that teeters but keeps on the tightrope on the gentle intro to “In The Wee Small Hours” while she gets a bit bluesy on the sepia toned “One For My Baby.” Corwin does the work of a veteran catcher using soft hands to handle “Send In The Clowns” and the melancholy “Come In From The Rain.” Lots of heart delivered from this soul.”
