Press Release: Mandy Harvey concert to benefit J.U.G.S. – March 5, 2018
Just Us Girls Sharing (J.U.G.S.) presents Mandy Harvey in concert on Monday, March 5, 2018 at 7:00 p.m.
Mandy Harvey is a deaf American singer-songwriter who received Simon Cowell’s Golden Buzzer in the most recent season of “America’s Got Talent”. She lost her residual hearing at age 18, due to a connective tissue disorder. She left the Vocal Music Education program at Colorado State University, and pursued several career options, including education, but returned to music in 2008. She quickly became a regular performer at Jay’s Bistro in Fort Collins and then branched out to having regular concerts at Dazzle Jazz Lounge in Denver (Top 100 Jazz venues in the world).
Mandy Harvey’s Golden Buzzer moment on “America’s Got Talent” has over 25 million views; CNN’s Great Big Story captured over 10 million hits on social media; Burt’s Bees signed her up for their “Remarkable Women” campaign; NBC Nightly News profiled her; and she has started performing at the world’s most prestigious clubs, concert stages and festivals.
“From the first note, Mandy Harvey tames her audience into stunned appreciation as she glides pitch-perfect from breathy jazz standard to growling blues…. At show’s end the audience is on its feet. Some know the secret. Harvey has not heard any of it – not the applause, not the talent of the musicians who shared the stage, not her own incredible voice.” – Los Angeles Times
A limited number of VIP tables ($100/seat) are available and include side-stage and side-balcony table seating, a souvenir CD, and a private meet-and-greet with the performer. Reserved seating tickets ($65-$50) are available online (www.phtww.org) or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500.
