Lakeside Chautauqua, Ohio- The British musical phenom known as Helen Welch recently brought her new stage show ” Superstar ” to the shores of Lake Erie .The city of Lakeside Chautauqua hosted the singer and her band at their historical amphitheater and to be honest I felt like I was in Las Vegas right here in Ohio .
“Superstar ” showcases the music legacy of ” The Carpenters” with the approval of Richard Carpenter himself. The Grammy nominated singer outdid herself in her rendition of the classic hits . In addition ,the in depth stories behind the music made it feel like Helen knew her and was telling the audience stories about an old friend.
Some of my favorite songs played that night were ( They Long To Be ) Close to You and We’ve Only Just Begun to name just a couple. The hits were too numerous to name but suffice to say the almost two hours went pretty quickly .
Helen’s band were all accomplished players well beyond there years and were the perfect compliment to her soft soulful voice .I highly recommend catching a show in the near future as this is the way the songs were supposed to be portrayed, in front a live audience.
