Hey there out there to my fans and friends! Whew! SO much is going on in my world of music, and I am loving it!! As Diana Ross says, There's a new me coming out...I want the world to know. Got to let is show....I think this time around, I am gonna do it like you never knew it. I'm completely positive. Yes! "I'M COMING OUT".
Hey! Just came across another photo that was taken by PRMedia Productions of me in costume portraying the late great Ms. Lena Horne. It was an honor and loved being chosen as Lena who happened to be a mutual friend of our dear lady, the one and only, Lillette Jenkins Wisner... "Queen of the Keys" in which "Lillette's Rhythm Club" was written.
This is the poster created by Adrienne Lillette/FAME PR & MEDIA PROCUCTIONS presented in front of a SOLD OUT audience at The Murray Theater at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater Florida. At the helm was jazz concert actress Lillette Jenkins-Wisner featuring concert pianist, Jade Simmons. I proudly played the role of one of Ms. Lillette's friends from back in the day, the legendary Ms. Lena Horne.
Executive Producer Adrienne Lillette, the one and only Lillette Jenkins-Wisner, Jade Simmons. Lillette passed the torched that night to the young maverick and sensational Jade Simmons. Jade will be peforming as Lillette, reintroducing the public to the music and lifestyle of the "Queen of the Keys": Lillette Jenkins-Wisner.
t's been a while since I have blogged. A lot has been going on....some challenging yet good for the soul and growth...positively speaking. I spent a wonderful time home in Ford City with my peeps, my loving mother, brothers and children. Something I treasure as I regretfully don't get a chance to do very often. Family helps build foundation (and should) help you to stay based..know who are you and where you came from. I have five wonderful brothers. I work and create music with one of the most talented of them all, my brother Stan ' the Man' Heffner....a true master of the Hammond B3 and arranger on the keys. We are known as Heffner & Hefner. This is our latest photo and of Stan 'the Man'. Join us on our new journey.
