Ethel Waters: HIS EYE IS ON THE SPARROW
Tuesday, 21 September 2021,  7:30
Hits : 89

ETHEL WATERS: HIS EYE IS ON THE SPARROW…the musical biography of an artist who broke through every color barrier to become a Broadway and Hollywood Academy-Award nominated star. The story of Ethel Waters begins with her impoverished childhood that led to singing in church, smoky jazz joints and a life on the road. Everywhere she went, Ethel was celebrated for her charismatic stage presence and husky fluid voice.

A vaudeville star, she was invited to Hollywood, but a reputation for being difficult and her own distrust of those who might employ or love her, caused her to lose everything. Angry, disillusioned and lonely, she found new strength as a gospel performer, who captured hearts across America. Through it all, there were the songs – the ones that gave her solace and the ones that made her a legend. This is her remarkable story, filled with the greatest hits of a lifetime, including “Stormy Weather,” “This Joint is Jumpin’,” “Black and Blue” and “Am I Blue?”
