Californian Celisse Henderson, a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, performer and spoken word artist is performing a live streamed show “Celisse Flies Free with Livestream”.
This talented multi-instrumentalist released an incredibly powerful single called “Freedom” last year which was written in 2016 after the deaths of Philando Castillo and Alton Sterling within 24 hours of each other.
“Now, almost four years later, too little has been done and the story remains the same. With the horrific and unjust killings of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd and Tony McDade weighing heavily on our hearts and minds, it is time to release ‘FREEDOM’ as a rallying cry and a call to action to stand up and fight for our freedom.”
Celine Henderson is an amazing artist: she has been on in the recent revival of Godspell at Circle in the Square Theater and the Broadway national tour of Wicked and and Bridget Everett’s Rock Bottom at The Public Theater. On television, Celisse has appeared on PBS’s The Electric Company, 30 Rock, Rescue Me, The Big C, White Collar and more.
She has also appeared countless times in concert with artists ranging from, most recently, Melissa Etheridge, Joss Stone, PHISH, Macy Gray and Mariah Carey to Bernstein’s MASS at Carnegie Hall and the various concerts of Marc Shaiman & Scott Wittman, Stephen Schwartz, Stephen Flaherty & Lynn Ahrens and Bill Finn.
Songwriter Matt Cusson has said: “the way she connects with the crowd, writes these brilliant songs and interprets them, and soulfully shreds on guitar is a talent I’m not sure I’ve ever seen. Not to mention she has one of the best voices I’ve ever heard. When she sings, I lose my mind.”
To see a live streamed “Celisse Flies Free with Livestream”, tune in at 5 p.m. PT on Tuesday, May 11 via Twitch.
