KELLYLEE EVANS

The return of vocal jazz’s grande dame

Kellylee Evans, a Canadian singer who won multiple awards and is considered as one of the most beautiful voices of her generation, had to give her last concert in October 2015 for health reasons. She had just released “Come On”, an album at the crossroad of jazz, soul music and groove which was named the Best Vocal Jazz Album of 2018 at the Juno Awards, the Canadian equivalent to the Grammy Awards. No doubt that those who were able to attend her concerts at the 2011 and 2014 editions of the festival remember them fondly. Kellylee Evans heated up the venue with her velvet tone, her tremendous generosity and her incomparable energy – quickly leaving the stage to sing barefoot among the audience. The singer is gifting her audience with a comeback by opening the festival! Come see this intensely emotional and musical show, with the remarkable woody Richelieu amphitheater of the Sorbonne as a backdrop which measures up to this must-see event of the Parisian music season.
