Silver Spring, MD — Marking Acorn Media’s first Blu-ray release, 3 Mo’ Divas, a spectacular musical celebration with 10 styles of music, debuts on Blu-ray and standard DVD on May 12, 2009. Conceived by Marion J. Caffey, creator of the smash hit Three Mo’ Tenors, this show has thrilled sold-out audiences all across North America. In this live performance from their widely popular, ongoing tour, there’s nothing the three divas can’t sing, from soaring opera to show tunes, jubilant gospel, jazz, blues, and more. 3 Mo’ Divas was broadcast on HDNet in fall 2008 and as a PBS special in March 2009. Also on May 12, Acorn Media is releasing 3 Mo Divas debut CD, “Smashing Musical Barriers.”
Three magnificent voices. Ten musical styles. Two hundred years of music. Take your front-row seat at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts for genre-defying feats of vocal skill by three of today’s most versatile and powerful singers. Sopranos Nova Y. Payton and Jamet Pittman and mezzo-soprano Laurice Lanier are all classically trained but sing everything with equal skill. The show begins with the classical sounds of Puccini then segues into songs from popular Broadway musicals like Wicked, Ragtime, and Rent, followed by familiar tunes from Billie Holiday, Whitney Houston and Tina Turner. Complete with rehearsal clips and interviews, 3 Mo’ Divas provides nonstop family entertainment.
SONGS INCLUDE: Summertime, God Bless the Child, Seasons of Love, Defying Gravity, Quando m’en vó (from Puccini’s La Boheme), Everything Must Change, I’m Every Woman, Let the Good Times Roll, and more.
