The Las Vegas Review Journal said, “She shines . . . a delightful and obviously well-trained voice.” Variety commented on her “powerful alto voice” and “distinctive style.”

O’Keefe, also a “Girl Singer” and Raye’s sister, performs with the Minnesota Jazz Orchestra, Century jazz ensemble, Tim Patrick and the Blue Eyes Band as their female vocalist as well as with All of Colleen Raye’s Productions . Gearty performs in the Minneapolis music scene singing in venues such as The Dakota and Hell’s Kitchen or lending her voice to other Twin Cities musicians.

ADELE’s music spans all ages and Colleen Raye brings the heart and soul of it to this show. Colleen Raye has performed worldwide, recorded several albums and writes and produces her own music and concerts. When seeing Adele perform for the very first time on Saturday Night Live in 2008, Colleen knew she was witnessing something unique and very special. Adele’s emotion came through the TV set and Colleen has never forgotten that moment and been a fan ever since. Since then, Adele has been dubbed The Biggest Pop Star On The Planet. Adele and Colleen grew up in different eras, but both listened to Roberta Flack, Dusty Springfield as key influences while they were developing their singing styles. Music is Timeless. Colleen is not trying to imitate Adele. She brings the songs of Adele, expressed with her own warm tones, heartfelt interpretations, and natural charismatic stage presence to audiences. Backed by 6 fabulous musicians and singers under the Musical Direction of keyboardist Jordan Hedlund, the full sound of Adele’s production will be recreated. Colleen’s dream is to someday sing a duet with Adele! Yes she dreams big! You never know!
