Tribute to Barry White 
Sat., Jan. 14, 2023, 8 pm  


Jourdan Carroll is just one of those singers that you never want to forget. Walking away from his soulful voice at the end of a show gives you hope and admiration for his talent. Carroll has worked his entire life on his voice. His voice is so deep and mesmerizing it is often associated with the voice of the legendary Barry White. With notes so low that some could claim the ground was shaking, he made his star-like debut in his early teens. After being noted so many times for his resemblance to Barry White, he decided to bring it into his shows. This only increased his popularity and fame as old fans of Barry White now had a new and refreshing voice to bring the ‘70s soul star back to life. Carroll has captured the charismatic persona of Barry White, as well as his penchant for impromptu comments while performing. This show is a "must-see" event for anyone who is a Barry White fan or a lover of classic R&B.
