(Niagara Falls, ON) May 9, 2017 – Conquering the musical charts, Broadway stage and television screen, superstar Vanessa Williams brings her platinum-studded hits to the Fallsview stage this August for one night only.

Selling over two million copies worldwide since her 1988 debut album The Right Stuff, Vanessa Williams has hit platinum status twice over with her top-charted R&B ballads such as “Save The Best For Last”, “Dreamin’”, “Love Is”, “The Sweetest Days”, “Running Back To You”, “The Right Stuff” and “Colours Of The Wind”. Taking Broadway by storm, Williams has won the hearts of critics as Chita Rivera in Kiss Of The Spider Woman, the Witch in a revival of Into The Woods and starred in the Tony nominated production The Trip To Bountiful. On the big screen she garnered rave reviews as the lead in films Soul Food, Eraser, Dance With Me and Shaft alongside television series Ugly Betty and Desperate Housewives. Vanessa Williams’ promises an enchanting evening of her Billboard top hits complete with her signature soul ballads and adult contemporary pop singles.

Fallsview Casino is also proud to present the award-winning production series, Forever Plaid, featuring a close-harmony quartet reminiscent of classic 1950’s groups The Four Aces and The Four Freshman. Performers Sparky, Smudge, Jinx and Frankie execute charmingly outlandish choreography with their classic barbershop melodies that tells the story of “The Plaids” returning from the afterlife for one final chance at musical glory. Songs from the set-list include “Heart And Soul”, “Sixteen Tons”, “Three Coins In The Fountain”, “Crazy ‘Bout Ya Baby”, “Love Is A Many Splendored Thing” and “Shangri-La”.
