Hertzenberg takes the audience on an eclectic, heartfelt tour of the songwriting canon. From her delightful, sun-kissed fusing of “Rainbow Connection” and “Over the Rainbow” to her earthy reading of Motown hits to her celestial interpretation of Italian composer Giacomo Pucinni’s famous aria “Nessun Dorma (None Shall Sleep),” Hertzenberg uses her astonishing talent to give listeners the imaginative and soulful music they yearn to hear. Against a backdrop of Auto-Tuned fakery and prefab idols, Hertzenberg stands out for being a genuine, stunning, effects-free entertainer who can drop jaws with the best of them. For this and many other attributes, critics have called her delivery “perfect,” her voice “gorgeous,” “lilting and limitless.”
Hertzenberg’s Santa Fe Station show is unlike anything we’ve come to expect from the Texas-born singer who grew up learning to rap by boombox-blasting Young MC’s “Bust a Move” and went on to earn a master’s degree in Opera Performance at the Longy School of Music in Cambridge, Massachusetts. After touring Europe as a cast member in an acclaimed production of Hair, Hertzenberg moved to Las Vegas in 2006 for the Phantom lead, a role she inhabited for six years. She continues to perform in shows on the Strip (Million Dollar Quartet at Harrah’s) and to sing with groups as varied as gypsy-jazz ensemble Hot Club of Las Vegas, as well as her own band.
