Three-time Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Dee Dee Bridgewater will perform this Saturday at the Rialto Center for the Arts.

A renowned jazz singer, Bridgewater has performed with Sonny Rollins, Dizzy Gillespie, Dexter Gordon, Max Roach, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, the Terence Blanchard Quintet and many others. She is the former host of NPR’s syndicated radio show JazzSet with Dee Dee Bridgewater.

Bridgewater has received seven Grammy Award nominations. In 1975, she won a Tony Award for Best Featured Actress for her role in “The Wiz.” I saw her in it when the Northside High School of Performing Arts went to New York over the Thanksgiving Day holidays and saw three Broadway shows. She can be heard on more than 50 albums.

Bridgewater will sing Saturday, March 7 at 8 p.m. at the Rialto Center for the Arts.
