Patti Austin is a performer who crosses all musical boundaries and genres: R&B, Gospel, Blues, Jazz & Broadway.  Patti is in constant demand globally for live performances, thanks to a legacy of recordings that started in 1955, through the ‘60s as a teenage R&B star, and among jazz and soul fans through her ‘70s recordings.  Ms. Austin became known to international audiences with her GRAMMY-nominated “Baby Come To Me” and “How Do You Keep The Music Playing” duets with James Ingram.  For the past decade, she has been performing Ella Fitzgerald, Gershwin and other jazz classics for sold-out audiences around the world.
