Little Rock and your Arkansas Symphony have the honor of hosting one Broadway's brightest stars for an exclusive evening of music: Heather Headley on Saturday, October 5th, 2019 at the Robinson Center!

Heather was born and spent most of her childhood on the beautiful Caribbean island of Trinidad. In the 90's, her family moved to the United States where her love for the arts flourished and grew into an incredible, multi-faceted career.

She is known for her GRAMMY Award for Best Contemporary R&B Gospel Album, winning the prestigious Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical for her title role in Elton John and Tim Rice's Aida, and, of course, originating the role of Nala in Tim Rice's hit Tony-winning musical, The Lion King!  Heather's stage and music career also includes GRAMMY Award nominations for Best New Artist and Best Female R&B Vocal Performance, starring as Shug Avery in the Tony Award-winning The Color Purple, and the coveted Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Actress in a Musical.

On Saturday, October 5th, your Arkansas Symphony Orchestra will take the stage with Heather Headley for a one-night-only concert at the Robinson Center. The program will feature Heather performing selections from The Lion King, Elton John and Tim Rice's Aida, and many more show stopping numbers from Broadway's most popular musicals.
