Impressionist who totally eclipses stars
American singer, actress and impressionist Christina Bianco has wowed Ellen Degeneres, Paul O'Grady and Graham Norton ... now she's bringing her many talents and voices to Blackpool.
Three’s A Crowd Productions bring the long awaited one-woman show Me, Myself and Everyone Else featuring the US singing sensation to Viva Blackpool on September 5.
It’s another coup for the venue which is helping redefine cabaret in the resort and winning a reputation as a quality stand alone alternative to a night out at the bigger theatres and more traditional outlets.
Bianco is no stranger to Broadway and the West End and her vocal and comedic range has charmed audiences across the world.
She first won worldwide acclaim via her ‘diva’ impressions on Youtube - which notched up more than 23m hits.
Bianco has since performed on The Ellen Degeneres Show, The Paul O’Grady Show, This Morning and Graham Norton on BBC Radio 2.
Part of the magic rests in Bianco’s ability to mix it with the best of them with unlikely interpretations that pair a singer and song (or other singer) you wouldn’t expect.
So step forward and take a bow Bianco as Shirley Bassey singing Adele’s Hello or her surprisingly soulful and decidedly bizarre Under Pressure between another Christina - Aguilera - and Julie Andrews.
If throwing in Dora the Explorer for good measure isn’t enough to boggle the mind along with umpteen divas singing Total Eclipse of the Heart Christina also sings in her own right - pushing aside the spot-on impressions to show her own soaring vocals off to pitch-perfection.
Bianco herself admits she’s thrilled to finally perform in Britain. “I’ve been overwhelmed by the amazingly supportive and enthusiastic audiences. I’m especially excited about travelling up and down more of this beautiful country and meeting more of my fans along the way.”
From Ariana Grande to Cheryl Cole to Celine Dion, no celebrity is safe. And there’s audience participation...
