Cypress Creek FACE presents An Evening with Patti Austin
Grammy-winner Patti Austin comes to Houston to perform a “hybrid" show - "A little jazz, a little pop, a little bit of stuff I just like to do,” she described. “With the usual amount of goofiness and storytelling.”
After touring with Harry Belafonte in her teens, Austin worked as a club singer with the InterContinental hotel chain for three years. Though she recorded copious jingles for companies like J. C. Penney and Kleenex and did background vocal sessions for the likes of James Brown, Billy Joel, and Paul Simon, it was her 1983 chart-topping hit “Baby Come to Me” with James Ingram that brought her to the national spotlight.
