Kurt Elling and Ann Hampton Callaway
Starting in Chicago, Kurt Elling -- "The standout male vocalist of our time," (New York Times) -- recorded several of his early albums, earned the first of many GRAMMY® nominations and catapulted onto the national stage before moving to Manhattan in 2008. Elling’s recent CD release, "Passion World," is a tour-de-force program of love songs from around the world. Performing each song in its native tongue, Elling tells rich stories about musical history on a grand multicultural tour of exotic places and cultures.
