The Smith Center - Cabaret Jazz, 361 W Symphony Park Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89106

From Michelle: "This 'complete album' show is a tribute to the iconic Carole King album that most shaped my musical career and my personal life. The show is a blend of her music and my biography, woven together. Carole King's "Tapestry" was and continues to be a groundbreaking album, and Carole King remains the largest influence on my songwriting and musical sensibility. We are doing the entire album. I can't wait to see you there!"
