Don't miss the beautifully performed timeless signature tunes from one of the most significant and celebrated artists, Ms Roberta Flack, on this very special tour with her band.


The only female recipient of consecutive Song of the Year Grammy Awards, Roberta received her first triple Grammies in 1973 for Song and Record of the Year with The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face and Best Pop Vocal by a Duo for Where Is The Love (duet with Donny Hathaway). Roberta earned another three Grammies in 1974 for Record and Song of the Year and Best Pop Vocal by a Female for Killing Me Softly With His Song.

Her sophisticated banquet of romantic classic hits also includes Feel Like Makin' Love, Where is the Love, Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow, The Closer I Get To You, Tonite I Celebrate My Love, Trade Winds, Don't Make Me Wait Too Long, Only Heaven Can Wait, Oasis, 'Til The Morning Comes, And So It Goes, Back Together Again, Jesse, You Are My Heaven and Set The Night To Music.

She is an outspoken advocate for artists' rights and a passionate believer in inspiration as a catalyst for education. The Roberta Flack School of Music offers disadvantaged young people from the Bronx, opportunities to express themselves through creative experiences and accepts students at no cost. It is just one of the many 'hands on' projects where Roberta gives back and is entirely funded by donations.

Roberta shows no signs of slowing down her touring schedule having performed in Turkey, Argentina, Japan and recently South Africa before heading to Australia and New Zealand in early 2009.
