Aaron Neville

Many a performer feels the holiday spirit, but few can impart it with the soul-shivering impact of Aaron Neville. Having one of the most evocative and recognizable voices in American music, he’s an international ambassador of New Orleans R&B, though his soaring falsetto sounds at home in many styles. Coming of age on the incredibly creative 1950s Crescent City R&B scene, Neville gained national attention with the Wild Tchoupitoulas, a touring Mardi Gras celebration that led to the creation of the Neville Brothers band — an institution that would confirm Neville’s iconic status. Over his Grammy-winning solo career, Neville has scored a string of hits including 1967’s “Tell It Like It Is,” memorable duets with Linda Ronstadt and a hugely popular cover of Main Ingredient’s “Everybody Plays the Fool.” A deeply spiritual man, his mesmerizing renditions of classics like “Silent Night” and “The Christmas Song” turned his 1993 album Soulful Christmas into a million-seller, and he delved deeper into the seasonal canon with 2005’s Christmas Prayer. Neville has most recently tackled gospel with I Know I’ve Been Changed, celebrating his 50th year in recorded music. Join us for an unforgettable evening of holiday classics with a true American original.

Note: Leaders Circle Members, come get in the holiday spirit with a New Orleans twist — after Aaron Neville’s concert. >More
