Award-nominee Evan Tyrone Martin (DREAMGIRLS, FAR FROM HEAVEN, SIDE SHOW) warmly resonates the velvety vocal style of musical legend Nat King Cole. Chicago Tribune calls Martin “Destined for Stardom: One of the Hot New Faces of Chicago Theatre,” and BCR News praises, “Martin’s vocal ease would have done Nat King Cole proud.” Martin intimately relates Cole’s musical journey: from his upbringing in the Chicago church, to shuffling along the jazz scene, to his emergence as a popular music icon. Classic tunes include “Straighten Up and Fly Right,” “L-O-V-E,” and “Smile.”
