We profoundly apologize for the technical issues which prevented the “Songs from the Heart” stream from staying up for the 48 hours as announced by Dreamstage, and hope to stream this performance again very soon in April/ May on another platform.

Good news, though, coming up on 4 April, there are still 2 opportunities to stream “Rendezvous With Marlene”, which will remain available till 11 April.

VOCALS: Songs from the Heart – Ute Lemper
March 20th – 2:00 PM EDT/11:00 AM PDT

Whether in concert halls, recording albums or gracing the stage of a musical, Ute Lemper has easily become of our most passionate and accomplished performers.

That wide range of material she handles will be on display in Songs from the Heart on Saturday. The concert will be streaming from Europe and includes songs from the musicals Cabaret and Chicago; from The Threepenny Opera; songs made famous by Édith Piaf and Marlene Dietrich, a song Lemper composed and also a song by Joni Mitchell.

I’ve seen her in multiple concert performances and also in the Broadway revival of Chicago. She’s absolutely amazing.

Joining Lemper for this concert will be Vana Gierig on piano; Tim Ouimette on trumpet; Matt Parrish on bass and Todd Turkish on drums and percussion.

Tickets are $24.99 and allow for 48 hours of access.

Paris 1987. I was the Sally Bowles and Liza came to our opening night in Paris Theatre Mogador.

I was so moved and in awe to meet her. Knowing that she was watching the show was frightening and so exciting. I was a fan of hers since my childhood!!! She was so nice and supportive!

A few years later we had dinner at the Gianni Versace costume exhibit in Berlin as we both were friends with Gianni. That night she cuddled and sang to my little baby Max in her hotel room. That was 26 years ago, an image I never forgot: Liza, so full of love and life, so vulnerable and generous, with art pulsing through her veins, her heart, her eyes, her legs, and every finger that touches music.
