Last night my husband and I got the most amazing treat — right in our local library in Westfield — a performance by Rhonda Denet: http://www.rhondadenet.com/RDMusic/Home.html

(And this is why you should support your local libraries – you never know what extreme talent will be there!)

I went not expecting much and was totally blown away.

Rhonda Denet took the audience on a musical journey covering Motown hits from the 1960s and 1970s, as well as telling the stories behind the songs. (Did you know that Farrah Fawcett inspired “Midnight Train to Georgia”?!)

Some of the songs included:

“Baby Love” (Supremes)

“Midnight Train to Georgia” (Gladys Knight)

“My Guy” (Mary Wells)

“The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” (Roberta Flack)

“Chain of Fools” (Aretha Franklin)

“At Last” (Etta James)

And here’s her performance of “At Last” from another show (not last night):

  • Rhonda Denet should be nationally known singer. Her rendition of “At Last” was amazing and this lady knows how to deliver a song. Loved the saxophonist and keyboardist being featured in the video also.

  • Why am I just finding this? Maryanne, what a wonderful review! Thanks for all your kind words, I’m so happy you enjoyed the showcase.

    Andrew — There is NOW a link to buy my original music on my website. There are also recordings of cover tunes in the works and will be available soon. I’ll post here when they are up on the website. Then I’ll work on the Amazon links, now that there’s demand for it.

  • What do you think?
