Singer-songwriter and Broadway extraordinaire Shoshana Bean is bringing the Christmas spirit to Los Angeles.
On Dec. 18, Bean will perform her one-night-only holiday concert, “Sing Your Hallelujah,” at Immanuel Presbyterian Cathedral. She will be joined by a lineup of talented performers, including Broadway star Cheyenne Jackson, Grammy-nominated singer Jarrett Johnson, singer Kojo Littles, gospel artist Jason McGee and The Choir, singer Stevie Mackey, tap dancer Sarah Reich and singer David Simmons.
“Sing Your Hallelujah” is produced by For The Record, with David Cook serving as musical director, arranger and piano player.
Bean first began her holiday show at the Apollo Theatre in New York City, where it became an annual tradition. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit and forced Broadway and live concert venues to close last year, she decided to expand and bring the concert across the country to Los Angeles.
She carries with her an extensive background on Broadway and as an independent recording artist. In addition to releasing three well-received solo albums, Bean made her Broadway debut in the original cast of Hairspray and won an IRNE Award for her performance as Fanny Brice in Funny Girl. She was also the first replacement for Elphaba in Wicked and Jenna in Waitress, and earned a Jeff Award nomination for her role as CeeCee Bloom in the pre-Broadway musical production of Beaches.
With live performances back in full swing around the world, Bean and friends set to perform “Sing Your Hallelujah” on the West End and Broadway and in Los Angeles.
The show at Immanuel Presbyterian Cathedral will serve as the big finale for the show’s run. Already, Bean and co. have performed in London and New York City. Last year’s worldwide streaming film was swapped out on Dec. 4 for a night of elegance and joy across the pond at Cadogan Hall. More recently, on Dec. 13, Bean finally made her return to the Apollo Theater where it all began.
As 2021 concludes another tough year, “Sing Your Hallelujah” captures the heart of the season with fresh takes on holiday classics, intimate collaborations and offers audiences a time to reflect, connect and be grateful.
