This is Fischer’s debut appearance at Summerfest. Winner of the Grammy for Best Female R&B Performance for “How Can I Ease the Pain,” Fischer has a multi-octave voice that when coupled with the outstanding musicians in Grand Baton, guarantees that the audience will be on its collective feet throughout the evening. With her astonishing range, spot-on intonation and a mastery of the stage, Fischer is sought out as a headliner for jazz festivals throughout the world. Fischer, who regularly tours and records with Beyoncé, The Rolling Stones, Sting and Chris Botti among others, is featured in the Oscar and Grammy-winning 2013 documentary “Twenty Feet from Stardom,” which shines a spotlight on the untold true story of the backup singers behind some of the greatest musical legends of the 21st century.

Freelon is also making her Summerfest debut. Her appearance is almost a trip home for the Six-time Grammy Award nominee. Born and raised in Cambridge, Massachusetts, she is a graduate of Simmons College in Boston. Freelon has a well-deserved reputation as a compelling and captivating live performer. In 2014, she starred in the critically acclaimed show “Georgia on My Mind: Celebrating the Music of Ray Charles” at The Venetian Las Vegas hotel.
