Lalah Hathaway kicks off Park City Institute’s Main Stage concerts
Five-time Grammy winner performs Saturday
“Lalah is really a remarkable person,” said Park City Institute Board Member Besty Wallace during the season reveal on Sept. 22 at the Pendry Park City. “She’s got that soulful sound, and that’s how you want to start the series.”
Tickets are available by visiting parkcityinstitute.org/main-stage.
Hathaway, a five-time Grammy Award-winner, and 10-time nominee, performs everything from rhythm & blues ballads to jazz and pop standards.
Not only is Hathaway a singer, she has also appeared in films like Malcolm D. Lee’s 2017 comedy drama, “Girls Trip,” that starred Regina Hall, Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith.
Other film and TV appearances include a role as the wedding singer in the series finale of BET’s “Being Mary Jane,” a cameo in Yvette Nicole Brown’s 2019 rom-com, “Always A Bridesmaid,” and a special guest on the latest season of the Netflix series, “Family Reunion.”
In 2019, Hathaway headlined the Lincoln Center’s Out of Doors Summer Concert Series with her sold-out show, “Legacy: Lalah Hathaway Sings Donny Hathaway,” a tribute to her father.
The album was recorded in 1985, but put on hold to make way for Davis’ 1986 Grammy Award-winning album, “Tutu.”
Davis died in 1991, and his estate posthumously released “Rubberband” in the fall of 2019.
Three years later, Hathaway’s song “Show Me Your Soul,” from David Kleijwegt’s 2020 documentary, “Mr. Soul: A Story About Donny Hathaway,” was featured on the Oscars 2021 shortlist for Best Original Song.
In December 2022, through digital magic, Hathaway, who received an honorary doctorate in 2022 from Berklee College of Music, released “This Christmas,” a duet with her late father who died in 1979. And this past summer, Hathaway released a non-album single, “The Energy.”
Hathaway was originally scheduled to perform on Aug. 11, as part of the Park City Institute’s revived Big Stars, Bright Nights Summer Concert series at Canyons Village, according to Wallace.
“(She) had to change her routing, and she couldn’t make it to our concert,” Wallace said. “But she is our first show up.”
