THE JENNY BURTON EXPERIENCE
"A roller-coaster ride through R&B, pop and gospel" raves the Daily News of The Jenny Burton Experience, a musical group featuring Ms. Jenny Burton and her seven-voice choir. The group broke all box office records and played to packed houses in their more than seven year run at New York City's "Don't Tell Mama" and is still going strong. The group is made up of many of New York City's top studio singers and includes Margaret Dorn - Choir Captain, Jillian, La Tanya Hall, Branice McKenzie, Angela Robinson, John James, Kevin Osborne and Karl Dixon.

"An imposing figure, an impressive singer, and a commanding presence" declares Back Stage of vocalist Jenny Burton. She began her singing career in churches and then moved into the R&B/Dance circuit. As a solo artist on Atlantic Records, Jenny's contributions to the motion picture soundtrack of Beatstreet brought her her first gold album. She recorded her first solo LP In Black And White which included the hit single I Remember What You Like which made Billboard's top 10 Dance, top 20 R&B and Hot 100 pop charts. Her second album, Jenny Burton, contained her third national #1 dance hit - Bad Habits. She also sang a song for White Nights, her second film score starring Gregory Hines and Mikail Baryshnikov and that became her second gold album.

The group is composed for, produced and directed by award winning/gold record composer Peter Link. His song, If You Let Me Make Love To You, Then Why Can't I Touch You? as sung by Ronnie Dyson won him a gold record and sold over two million records. His songs have been recorded by such artists as Johnnie Mathis and Dionne Warwick. He earned two Tony nominations for his musical scores of Joseph Papp's Much Ado About Nothing and for Neil Simon's The Good Doctor and a New York Critic's Drama Desk Award for his hit musical Salvation.. Mr. Link has also created music for television, ballet and feature films.

The choir is made up of nine multi-talented singers who have performed both in the recording studios and in concert all over the world with such diverse talents as: The Rolling Stones, Harry Belafonte, Madonna, Diana Ross, New Kids On The Block, Celine Dion, Willie Nelson, Taylor Dane, Barry Manilow, Donald Fagen, Cindi Lauper, Annie Lennox, Freddie Jackson, Toto, Petula Clark, Roberta Flack, Ashford and Simpson, Michael McDonald, Kool and the Gang, Bette Midler, Patti Austin and Gregory Hines - to name just a few.

The Jenny Burton Experience swept all the major music awards in New York City for best vocal group including the MAC Award, The Back Stage Bistro Award and The Critic's Choice Award. Named as one of Theater Week Magazine's Top Ten Acts of the '94/'95 season, they also won the CAB Award for Entertainers Of The Year.

They have most recently performed for tens of thousands of people at the Los Angeles Convention Center, Carnegie Hall, in Atlantic City as headliners at Resorts and opening for Al Green at Trump Marina, The University of Arizona in Tucson, Michael's Pub in New York City, with Stevie Wonder at the U.N.E.S.C.O. Time For Peace Awards at Lincoln Center, for 2000 people at Hudson River Park's Sounds At Sunset Series and a sold out performance at Peter Ligeti's American Cabaret Festival at Merken Hall. Recently they performed at the Indianapolis Black Expo with Morris Day and the Times and the Gap Band for 80,000 people. They also performed as headliners at Resorts International in Atlantic City for 27 performances over a 4 week period. Their first CD is already in its fifth pressing.

Says Jenny Burton on the success of The Jenny Burton Experience: "A connection to our spiritual roots has brought our music beyond just the dance sound to a place where it appeals to many different people. Young or old, black or white, our music touches each person in the same place - their heart."
