Hannibal Concert Association (HCA) presents its final concert of the 2016-2017 concert season Saturday, May 6, featuring a Broadway and Blues singer.

Jaimee Paul will perform at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 6, at the Roland Fine Arts Center on the campus of Hannibal-LaGrange University. Without a season or patron membership, tickets are $20 for adults and $5 for students at the door. Single ticket sales will be available at the door prior to the concert beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Paul was one of the performers included in the 2014-2015 HCA concert season, but a freezing rain/ice storm dampened the evening’s audience. The HCA board felt strongly about her amazing performance to a limited audience and decided to bring her back. Paul is a powerhouse vocalist who brings the Great American Songbook to the stage. Her musical influences include Sinatra, Crosby, Aretha Franklin, Ella Fitzgerald, Natalie Cole and Etta James.

She is backed by a jazz combo led by her husband, Leif Shires. Both Paul and Shires are in high demand with their fellow musicians in Nashville. Before taking center stage herself, Paul was a concert background vocalist for the likes of Barry Manilow, Dolly Parton and Wynonna Judd, studio background vocalist and jingle writer.
