Sirius Arts Centre Presents: Karen Underwood and Christiana Underwood Friday 15 March
“Maybe there is a time in a mother’s life when she looks at her children and says, “Fly”. Maybe is not spoken as much as it is perceived”. Karen Underwood will be joined on stage by her daughter Christiana Underwood for I’ll Fly Away, an inspirational selection of songs loved and shared with the audience at Sirius Arts Centre for one night only. Karen is renowned for her powerful, passionate and moving interpretations of the songs of Billie Holliday, Nina Simone, Dinah Washington, Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse.
