This week, Les chats with Nashville vocalist Wendy Moten – best known for her 2021 run on NBC’s “The Voice” – about her upcoming live concert on Monday, May 16 at 7:00 PM at Birdland Jazz Club NYC.
Wendy is an exceptional, adaptable singer, a pure musical spirit, and a bridge from Memphis to Nashville to the rest of the world. Respected in the music industry as a consummate professional for years, the wider public discovered her talent and charm through her remarkable run on NBC’s “The Voice” in 2021. She turned all four judges’ chairs on her blind audition and ended up in second place overall – unprecedented for an artist in her fifties. A native of Memphis, Moten sang R&B on a major label in the ‘90s then moved to Nashville to become an in-demand harmony singer. She spent 15 years as the key support voice for Julio Iglesias, and she has toured with Martina McBride, Tim McGraw & Faith Hill, and Vince Gill. We discuss all that and more. Check it out!
