“…Nicola Emmanuelle is the real deal. A charismatic, charming performer with a richly expressive, show-stopper of a voice, she’s a real throwback to the days of swing…” TimeOut
Dubbed “The First Lady of Song,” Ella Fitzgerald was the most popular female jazz singer in the United States for more than half a century. She worked with all the jazz greats, from Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Nat King Cole, to Frank Sinatra, Dizzy Gillespie and Benny Goodman.
The talents of Nicola Emmanuelle have been obvious for some time to the many artists, producers and musical directors who have been using her crystalline voice for studio albums, film and television work, and now Quaglino’s guests can enjoy one of the finest voices singing hits such as ‘Dream a Little Dream’, ‘Summer time’ ‘Cheek to Cheek’ and more. Join us as we celebrate the music icon that was Ella Fitzgerald.
Nicola can touch an audience with a torch song, before drawing them back to laughter with her endearing and graceful humour. She has a way of sticking you to the spot, and always wanting more; you stay there until forced to leave. Many acts have recently tried to encompass the enduring appeal of the great jazz singers and writers. Few if any, have the capacity or talent to do it with such authenticity or affection as Nicola Emmanuelle.
