“She has charm to burn, a smile that could give you hope in February and sings like nobody’s business” – Wall Street Journal

A comparative literature graduate who is fluent in French, Italian, Portuguese, and German as well as English, Kent understands the unique power of lyrics, and takes great care in their presentation.
A chart-topping jazz singer following in the footsteps of the greats, Stacey Kent finally returns after her sold-out February 2020 show at the Dakota.
