IVINS — Few things have the power to move us quite like song, and when it comes to the most moving songs ever performed on Broadway, “Bring Him Home,” sung by Jean Valjean in the musical “Les Miserables,” may well top the list.
This is just one of many evocative Broadway solos that renowned tenor John Smitherman will sing for one night only – Friday at 7:30 p.m. at the Center for the Arts at Kayenta – in “My Broadway: Music of the Night.”
Smitherman will perform favorites from “Jekyll & Hyde,” “Les Miserables,” “Phantom of the Opera,” “Return of the Phantom,” “South Pacific,” “Man of La Mancha” and more. The performance will also includes tunes made famous by artists like Frank Sinatra, Mario Lanza, Tony Bennett and Andrea Bocelli.
Smitherman’s extraordinary vocal talent has earned him leading roles in countless productions, including Broadway’s largest musicals: “Les Miserables,” “Phantom of the Opera” and “Jekyll & Hyde.” This feat of landing those three leading Broadway roles earned him a spot as one of the original three American tenors. He has also assembled a vast collection of awards throughout his career, including the NY Salt Award (twice), the Handy Award and many more.
