About Stephanie Reese:
"Stephanie became the first Filipina American born singer ever to stage a solo concert at the famed Carnegie Hall in New York City to a sold out audience and a standing ovation, however, before stepping out onto the Carnegie stage, Stephanie had a thriving career in theater. She performed as Kim in the German production of Miss Saigon, Esmeralda in the Disney World Premiere of, "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" and the Princess Tuptim in "The King and I" at the Palladium Theater in London's West End. She then returned to the United States and wrote, directed and starred in her autobiographical one-woman show entitled "The Journey" which received rave reviews in Seattle, San Jose, Los Angeles and at the Herbst Theater in San Francisco. Stephanie also wrote and directed a musical Christmas show, "The Gifts", that featured her and children of different ages and backgrounds. It has now been produced in three cities including Seattle, Virginia Beach and in Los Angeles for the Make a Wish Foundation. These solo endeavors launched Stephanie's solo career and with her original music, versatile sound and fusion of opera, pop and theatrical music, she created a new genre and style that has brought her global recognition. She has now performed solo concerts around the world including Russia, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Sweden, Paris, Germany, China, the U.S. and Canada to her very loyal and diverse fan base. She has shared the stage with Miss Patti Labelle and Natalie Cole, worked with Lionel Richie and many artists from the Philippines as well including Martin Nivera, Lani Misalucha, Richard Poon, Jose Mari Chan and Raymond Lauchenco. Stephanie was given the honor of being chosen as the first artist from abroad in 30 years to participate in the UNICEF televised concerts and galas in Germany. She was also chosen as the composer to compose and perform the UNICEF theme song for UNICEF Germany's 30th Year and performed her composition for German television and press. The album for her original song was released in 2012. She has now done these concerts annually for 4 years and just returned from Europe from the 2013 UNICEF tour in Germany.
She has recorded two albums "Stephanie Reese at Her Best" and "This is My Life" which includes more of her original songs and fan favorites. She is currently working on her new album and it is scheduled for release in February 2014. She is also on the original cast album of "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" and of "The King and I" with Elaine
Paige and Jason Scott Lee."
Don't miss this rare opportunity to see Stephanie and Friends perform in her own home town. It will be a wonderful way to relax and enjoy yourself after all the hustle and bustle of the holiday, while helping this very worthy cause.
