Nat King Cole Tribute with Seattle's J. Mitchell
Seattle WA, -- On Saturday, November 30 at 7:30 pm, J. Mitchell will deliver a heart-felt tribute to Nat King Cole at the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute. Mitchell, born 1954 in Seattle, has been training for this role for a lifetime; as a child Mitchell and his siblings watched the Nat King Cole Show with their parents in their den. While he found Cole's lyrics and phrasing "a little corny" at age eight, he’s grown into the baritone's styles as a mature performer, sighting his smooth and soothing tones as a significant influence on his career. Tickets are available via brownpapertickets.com for $20 in advance, or $25 at the door.
Mitchell performed as Nat King Cole at the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute's Gala in June, 2013, bringing down the house as he crooned those well-known ballads. Mitchell sites Tom Jones, Sammy Davis Jr., Lionel Ritchie and Smokey Robinson as influences, and regularly sings Blues, country, classics and rock & roll. But above all, "Nat remains king."
