CD Reviews

A Broadway Diva - Debbie Gravitte
Christopher H. Merrell | Denver, Colorado United States | 03/11/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What can I say about Debbie Gravitte that hasn't alreay been said? Ms. Gravitte is one of the leaders of Broadway Show music interpretation. I have the distinct pleasure of seeing Ms. Gravitte on the stage. I remember years ago - seeing Debbie in Denver in Zorba. I remember her sensational rendition of the song "Life Is". I performance I have remembered many years later. Several years ago I witnessed Ms. Gravitte thrilling a audience in Arvada, CO with the premiere performance of Defying Gravity . I knew from that moment on the the music from Wicked was going to be truly special. Thank you Debbie Gravitte. Please, please don't loose your humor and I'm looking forward to seeing you on the Great White Way again.

"I bought this CD without hearing any of the songs, and I'm so glad I did. What a powerfully rich and beautiful voice! Many of these are songs we've heard over and over, but they sound new when sung by Debbie Gravitte. If you enjoy Linda Eder, Nancy Lamott, or Laurie Beechman, I believe you'll really enjoy this album."
This is a great album.

"I heard Debbie sing with piano accompaniment in Delray Beach Florida last spring. The concert was lovely and I bought her CD there just to support her. Then I started listening to it and got hooked. The songs, orchestra, orchestrations, and Debbie's performances are first rate. This is a delightful and impressive display of great music and talent.
