"Brooklyn gives birth to new musical star, singer Alicia Olatuja, at inauguration."
- The New York Daily News
Considering all of the talent that had already graced her stage at Carnegie Hall on Feb. 16--Esperanza Spalding, Lalah Hathaway, George Duke, Terri Lyne Carrington and Nadia Washington--Dianne Reeves recognized that one of the most thrilling vocalists of today was actually sitting in the audience:
Alicia Olatuja. Giving Alicia a shout-out between songs, Reeves acknowledged the up-and-coming star's breathtaking performance at President Obama's inauguration and predicted great things ahead for her. It may not be long before Alicia Olatuja is the one headlining Carnegie and inviting HER friends to join her in song in that world-renowned venue!
