"Bennett has the personality, pizazz and powerful pipes to fill an arena"
– Star Tribune
Local theatre and music icon and three-time Grammy winner Jamecia Bennett brings her new blues show to the Dakota! This new production will feature her favorite jazz and blues classics, several originals from her upcoming album, and pop-urban hits that illustrate the continuing influence of the blues on contemporary music.
Bennett was named the Ordway Theater’s first resident artist for the 2020-21 Broadway at the Ordway season. She is a member of the Penumbra Theatre and the New Dawn Theatre, and a Park Square Theater favorite for her portrayal of Sister Rosetta Tharpe in Marie and Rosetta. Jamecia is also an NAACP Image Award winner with Sounds of Blackness, the internationally acclaimed group for which she is the lead vocalist.
