Steve Higgins, an internationally known Jamaican tenor who has toured Europe and performed for the Birmingham Commonwealth Association’s tribute to Queen Elizabeth II, will present an ‘Embracing Romance” concert on Feb. 24, 7 p.m., at Congregation Dor Chadash, 9400 SW 87 Ave.
The Steve Higgins & Friends concert — a post-Valentine’s Day fundraiser for Dor Chadash — is co-sponsored by the Jamaica Tourist Board and Stoosh Productions.
“The ‘Embracing Romance’ show will advise, in a humorous way, on ‘touch up hints’ for relationships and will definitely make you laugh,” said Higgins, who headlined a show in 2016 in Birmingham, England in celebration of Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday. “This show will definitely be ‘different’, featuring nostalgic, foot-stomping, upbeat romantic ballads and jazz numbers, as well as some signature Jamaican folk music about love as we weave some rich authentic Jamaican culture onto the main stage.”
Steve Higgins & Friends has been performing throughout North America for more than 15 years, featuring Higgins and a wide variety of Jamaican artists. Joining Higgins in the Dor Chadash sanctuary will be Dahlia Wynter and April Marr, two sopranos known for their wide range and timbre. In addition, joining the Higgins & Friends performance will be creative dancer Amaya Lewis, a finalist in the 2017 Miss Jamaica World contest.
“Having Steve Higgins & Friends sing in our sanctuary is not only a great event for our synagogue but also for the entire Kendall/South Dade community,” said Dor Chadash congregant Sharelle Levine, who is coordinating the event. “This will be a beautiful evening of music for the entire family.”
Tickets are $45 for general admission and $60 for the “Golden Circle” that includes a pre-concert “meet-and-greet” with the performers. Only 300 tickets are available for the concert.
