True star quality and originality are attributes that can be applied to a lot of cabaret artists. With La Voix this is not only applicable it actually falls short of really describing her magnificent stage presence, pure comic timing and the skills she has when performing classic ballads but mimicking the likes of Liza Minelli and Judy Garland. This is done with so much love and respect for these legends that I was close to tears of joy as I could see that although there was a very funny element to the renditions the love for her fellow songbirds was paramount.
La Voix’s connection with her audience is paramount and throughout her whole set this magical and at times flauntingly sexy link remained unbroken. As a cabaret diva La Voix is in a class all by herself, and with accomplished pianist Christian Ludlam’s understanding of pace, knowing where to break behind her made for a superb show.
This is sensational stuff where pure glamour and technical artistry have been blended together to form a delicious feast for the senses. This is not to be missed!
La Voix returns to Crazy Coqs on 29 March. She also performs at the Brighton Festival on 31 May and 1 June.
