Carmen Souza is one of those amazing talents that takes you by surprise - in a number of ways.  Born in Portugal to Cape Verdeans, she is exquisite.  When she speaks and sings, you can hear the echos of her Creole roots.  The bravery of her performances harkens back to a time that some of us don't remember - but others do - she has been compared to those who have inspired her: Ella, Nina, Billie.  Then, she draws from her strong Gospel background.  Mix the spiritual "mission" that she feels, combine that with traditional Cape Verde and contemporary Jazz - and a love for Horace Silver - well, you might just have The Queen of Hybrid on your hands!  Carmen is in the midst of her U.S. tour, and coming to the Kennedy Center very soon - that's why we're doing this third show on Friday.  It's special - and so is Carmen Souza.  Check out the accolades at www.carmensouza.com.  Then, check out FRIDAY'S show!
