Josephine Sanges, 2018 MAC La Mott Friedman Recording Award winner, 2017 Margaret Whiting Award winner (Finding Beauty-Celebrating Ann Hampton Callaway) and 2017 Broadway World nominee, made her cabaret debut in 2014 and, since that time, has been a featured artist at the Mabel Mercer Foundation's annual Cabaret Convention, performing at Carnegie Hall, Town Hall, and Rose Hall at Lincoln Center.
Based on her recent show celebrating the music of Ann Hampton Callaway, her award-winning album entitled Finding Beauty has been described by Callaway as, “beautifully sung with fresh arrangements of so many signature songs of my life.”
In her new show, COME RAIN OR COME SHINE, Josephine taps into the timeless songbook of HAROLD ARLEN, with classic songs from Broadway ("Come Rain or Come Shine," “A Sleepin' Bee," Napoleon") and Hollywood, ("Over the Rainbow," Blues in the Night," "The Man That Got Away," and “Stormy Weather”.) Under the direction of Jeff Harnar, with Music Director, John M. Cook, the show continues to run at the Laurie Beechman Theatre in NYC.
"When a vocalist comes along with a strikingly rich and radiant voice…PLUS can do the connecting with the listener by personalizing the material, that’s when you have…well, someone like Josephine Sanges.” - Nitelife Exchange
