Velvet Feature: "Diva" N'Kenge

Posted by Cindy Hussey on

We're so thankful to have an amazing community of creative, fabulous, smart, talented, and supportive women; and we want to celebrate, share and highlight them personally for their successes.
So, let us introduce you to one of our most treasured personalities, N'Kenge. She is not only an international Acclaimed Award Winning Broadway & Opera Songstress, she is also a wonderful person that is dedicated to her family, friends and the causes near to her heart. We're honored to be a part of her glamorous life and are forever thankful for our long, coveted relationship with the one and only ... "Diva" N'Kenge.
N’Kenge is an artist whose musical range covers 11 languages and genres that stretch from Opera, gospel, Jazz, pop and musical theatre. N’Kenge made her Broadway debut in Sondheim in Sondheim and returned to Broadway in Fall of 2021 in the revival of “Caroline, or Change” where she originated the role of The Moon. N’Kenge performs as a soloist for dignitaries around the world, which has included performing at the historical inauguration of President Obama at the Commander- in-Chief Inaugural Ball. Other venues include starring at the Haymarket Theatre in West End, London, Carnegie Hall with NY Pops Orchestra, Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, Vienna KammerOpera House, Israel Opera house and Lincoln Center with jazz legends like the late great Ornette Coleman as well as Wynton Marsalis.
Described as “Electrifying” by the NY Post in the role of Mary Wells that she originated in Broadway’s Smash Hit Motown: The Musical, Legend Berry Gordy Jr. calls N’Kenge “the most versatile artist I know”. She's made appearances on National TV singing the National Anthem at Madison Square Garden as well as headlining the Holiday Pops Concert for Columbus Symphony Orchestra last season which garnered her an Emmy nomination.
N’Kenge recently returned to Carnegie Hall starring in a special presentation of Dorothy Dandridge! The Musical with Book & Lyrics by Trey Ellis, Music & Lyrics by Shelton Becton and Directed by Tamara Tunie. N’Kenge also stars in the role of Jazz in the Broadway bound musical DANGEROUS. N’Kenge will perform her FOREVER SUMMER Tribute show to Donna Summer at the Adrienne Theatre in PA this October!
