Maggi Albisani - Live Performance at a major Las Vegas Showroom on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tT7I8HzJOsU
The sultry Italian singer from the Flatbush neighborhood of Brooklyn woos audience and belts out songs made popular by Connie Francis, Barbra Streisand, Sarah Vaughan and many others. Maggi Albisani does standards, pop, rock and jazz. Watching her perform, one can appreciate Albisanis need to be flexible. She schmoozes with her audience, flirts with the men all in great fun. Perhaps Maggis finest performances are her renditions of songs by which she shares many qualities and has the likeness and beauty of Connie Francis, the world renowned Italian-American singer.
Maggis first ambition was to act. My singing career started late, she said. My background was theater. Eventually she began singing in clubs. I liked the spontaneity. It is not as rigid as theater, she said. Maggis theater experience includes Anything Goes, The Maids, Long Day Journey Into Night, and Whos Afraid of Virginia Wolf. She performs at many Las Vegas locations (listed below) including Cuban Bombshells (Decastro Sisters) and The Kenny Kerr Show. Plus television experience for the PBS special, Down Memory Lane.
Maggi was featured as Artist of the Month in February 2007 by La Voce, The Voice of Las Vegas Italian-American Community (http://www.lasvegaslavoce.com).
Albisani has made two CDs Just in Time and Someone to Watch Over Me.
