Whatever happened to Oleta Adams,is she still around? She was another underrated singer.

Oleta is still performing and sounding great as ever! She was on the bill with Jimmy at both Carnegie Hall and the Hollywood Bowl in 2002.
BET also profiled her as artist of the month which is aired from time to time.

She is huge in Europe and does a lot of touring there. She also released an album last year which you can get on Amazon.com

I wonder if she received a lifelong free pass for travel on Trailways buses.I'm sure y'all remember the opening line from "Get here"

She also makes a lot of appearances on Imhotep Gary Byrd's show... I think she's one of his favorite artists... The lady has a great voice...

She was doing gospel at one time.

She just performed at BBKINGS in NY 2 weeks ago...I heard it was great.

I believe Oleta is quite active on the jazz club circuit here in the US. I've seen her three times in the past few years and each time is was at such a venue.
It is really a shame that she hasn't had a hit since GET HERE. All of her albums since then have been great. She is without question one of the great vocalists of our time.

oooHandsome, I was just listening to I had To Hear Your Voice and My Heart Wont Lie, the whole CD.
By the way, whatever happend to the 2 Guys (Tears For Fears) who actually discovered her?
|By Handsome (18.104.22.168) on Wednesday, March 31, 2004 - 12:48 pm:|
The 2nd cd Evolution is a great cd. I like those first five songs (consecutively) I don't know what happened to Tears for Fears.

I forgot a song....
I also like from the first cd, I've Got a Right To Sing My Song.
