Winner of the 2019 MAC Award for best female vocalist, 2018 La Mott/ Friedman Recording Award for Finding Beauty, and recipient of the 2017 Margaret Whiting Award, Josephine Sanges has taken the cabaret world by storm. In addition to singing at clubs in NYC, she has been a guest artist at the Mabel Mercer Foundation's 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 latest 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
