(NEW YORK CITY) On Thursday, Wendy Moten will be back on stage with the renowned Latin artist Julio Iglesias for a concert at New York’s Carnegie Hall honoring Oscar de la Renta. Wendy traveled the world as a featured vocalist with Iglesias for 15 years and is excited to join him on stage again. Learn more about the Carnegie Hall concert here.
(NASHVILLE, TN) – Wendy Moten is used to backing the greats – the Memphis born singer has worked with everyone from Michael Bolton to Buddy Guy, and she’s a featured vocalist on the recently released LP Good Road to Follow by multi-platinum selling, award-winning artist John Oates – and while she’ll be doing more of that this year, it’s all building up to Wendy taking center stage.
She lends her voice to “Remember,” the anti-bullying anthem. Out later this spring, the track will aim to boost awareness of this critical issue and also features the talents of Kris Thomas and Karina Iglesias (NBC’s The Voice). Read more about “Remember” here.
She’s going country. Wendy will join country power couple Faith Hill and Tim McGraw for shows in Las Vegas on April 11 and 12. But that’s not all – country can’t get enough of Wendy, and she’ll hit the road with Martina McBride this summer. As Martina tours the U.S. from Kansas to Massachusetts, Wendy will be with her. You can see all of Martina’s upcoming tour dates here.
And it’s all leading up to new music. Woodward Avenue Records will release Timeless: Wendy Moten Sings Richard Whiting on May 27. Produced by two-time GRAMMY® winner Paul Brown, Timeless puts Wendy back in the spotlight, and the buzz is already growing for Wendy to be in the GRAMMY® mix for Jazz Album of the Year. She’ll celebrate the release in her hometown of Memphis with an exclusive listening party event in June, so stay tuned to WendyMoten.com for details.
Woodward Avenue Records is very excited to announce that “Timeless – Wendy Moten sings Richard Whiting” is out now. This fantastic album produced by double GRAMMY winner, Paul Brown, features wonderful musicians who include Dave Koz, Paul Brown, Tracy Carter, Sinclair Lott, Tommy Kay, Mitchel Forman, Brian Bromberg and Roberto Vally. Wendy Moten is often referred to as the “singer’s singer.” This album puts Wendy back in the spotlight she deservedly has earned and allows the world to again hear this incredible and beautiful voice. All the insiders who have already listened, fully expect Wendy Moten to be in the Grammy mix for Jazz Album of the Year.My Ideal Miss Brown To You When Did You Leave Heaven He's Funny That Way Too Marvelous For Words Guilty I Wanna Go Places And Do Things I Can't Escape From You True Blue Lou It's A Long Time Between Kisses / PRE-ORDER YOUR COPY OF THE CD NOW!>>
KENNY ROGERS TO RECEIVE WILLIE NELSON LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD IN STAR-STUDDED TRIBUTE DURING “THE 47TH ANNUAL CMA AWARDS” AIRING WEDNESDAY, NOV. 6 ON THE ABC TELEVISION NETWORK
NASHVILLE – Newly inducted Country Music Hall of Fame member Kenny Rogers will receive The Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award during “The 47th Annual CMA Awards” airing Wednesday, Nov. 6 (8:00-11:00 PM/ET) on the ABC Television Network.
Rogers will be honored with a star-studded tribute featuring performances by Jennifer Nettles, Rascal Flatts, and Darius Rucker. Wendy Moten will join Vicki Hampton, and Kim Keyes on vocals, with many of Nashville’s finest musicians in the band.
“Kenny Rogers is a living legend and Country Music trailblazer,” said Ed Hardy, President of the CMA Board of Directors. “He is more than deserving of this honor and what is sure to be a stellar tribute. He represents everything that this Award was intended to recognize when we initiated it last year with Willie.”
Wendy was in LA again last week, working on a new recording project with Don Was. We can’t tell you who the Artist is just yet, but stay tuned here for more updates!
You may have heard a familiar voice shining, as usual, on the most recent release by Buddy Guy, produced by Tom Hambridge. Wendy’s powerful vocals are featured on the tracks “Justifyin'” and “Whiskey Ghost.” The album has been wildly successful and is the third Buddy Guy project that Wendy has been involved in.
Buddy Guy, “Rhythm & Blues” (No. 27): 77-year-old blues legend Buddy Guy nets his highest charting album ever on the Billboard 200, as “Rhythm & Blues” debuts at No. 27 with 11,000 sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. On Blues Albums, it marks Guy’s fourth No. 1.
The double-album includes an array of bold-faced guests including Keith Urban, Kid Rock, Beth Hart, Gary Clark, Jr. and Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, Joe Perry and Brad Whitford.
“Rhythm & Blues” also gives Guy his best sales week since SoundScan launched in 1991. His previous high came with his last set, 2010’s “Living Proof” (9,000; No. 46 debut and peak). In fact, his last four studio albums have also started with a larger debut week than the previous, starting with 2005’s “Bring ‘Em In” (7,000; No. 152) and continuing with 2008’s “Skin Deep” (just under 9,000; No. 68) and “Living Proof.” (Billboard Magazine)
Wendy Moten will be returning to Memphis to perform two shows as soloist for “Home For The Holidays” with the Memphis Symphony Orchestra and Chorus on Saturday, December 21st, 2013.
Wendy most recently performed with the Symphony in July of 2013, as part of the Memphis Music Magnet project.
