“If I cannot identify with the songs, and if the music does not move my soul, make me feel better, take me up when I’m down or higher when I’m up, then I don’t want to record it, play it or sing it!” -Regina Belle
Bethesda Blues & Jazz is proud to welcome back Regina Belle for an extraordinary performance celebrating the holiday season.
Regina Belle is an R&B, jazz, gospel, singer-songwriter and record producer. Belle recorded a duet in 1991 with Johnny Mathis, "Better Together" which appeared on his album Better Together: The Duet Album. Continuing her tradition of duets, she teamed up with Peabo Bryson for the songs "I Can't Imagine," "Without You," and "A Whole New World", which was the featured pop single from the soundtrack to the 1992 Disney movie Aladdin. The song hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and won the Grammy Award in 1993 for "Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal” as well as a "Best Song" Oscar in the same year.
