Oleta Adams

When Oleta Adams hit the Top 40 of the UK and US Pop charts as the featured vocalist behind Tears for Fears’ Woman in Chains, the singer, songwriter, and pianist was virtually unknown outside her native Yakima, Washington. Able to mix R&B, pop, and gospel music, Adams can sing it all, not settling into one genre. She is known for songs Get Here, Rhythm of Life, Circle of One, and Don’t Let the Sun Go Down. Oleta Adams performs at the Newberry Opera House November 21.
