Corey Roberts Will Open This Soulful, Limited Engagement
Singer-songwriter and pianist Jess Godwin will debut her latest EP, Klutz,
Friday, July 15, 2011 at Detroit's historic Gem Theatre. The self-proclaimed
'Misfit with Soul' will perform her unique style of R&B, pop and rock. The
all-ages show opens at 8 p.m. with Corey Roberts. Tickets are on sale now!
Jess Godwin has been compared to Teena Marie, Regina Spektor and Norah
Jones, but has a sound all her own. The Chicago Tribune calls her, "the
voice of a songbird." A classically trained singer and pianist, Godwin
blends her theatrical background, quirky demeanor and understated sense of
humor for a rich performance of funny and honest storytelling.
Corey Roberts, a Michigan native and a recent graduate from Carnegie Mellon
University with a degree in Voice Performance, will open the show. Roberts
is a seasoned performer at 22 - whose talent covers a wide range of genres,
including jazz, opera and soul. Roberts' expressive and moving stage
presence is as confident as it is charming. His smooth tenor allows him to
serenade his listeners with controlled gusto and passion as observed in his
delivery of Bring Him Home from Les Miserables. Whether he is performing
solo or as part of duet, Roberts' rendition of The Song That Goes Like This
from Spamalot, exhibits his knack for smart comedic timing. To view Corey
Roberts' performances, visit his You Tube gallery, exit2stageright.
