Women's Lifestyle: Spotlight on local jazz singers

Local Jazz Artists Talk about Inspirations

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - Each month the WZZM 13 Weekend Morning News shares a few highlights from the current edition of Women's Lifestyle Magazine.  This month's edition of Women's Lifestyle Magazine is all about expressing yourself whether through dance, cooking, photography, or song.

And even if you can't hold a tune, these three ladies are sure to inspire you.  Kathy Lamar, Mary Rademacher Reed, and Edye Evans Hyde are all part of the local jazz scene and all have performed internationally.  They shared their perspectives on the current scene and why they sing, during Sunday morning's newscast.

The focus on jazz is fitting with the GRandJazzFest coming up on Aug. 20 and 21, 2016, at Rosa Parks Circle. According to organizers: The 5th annual GRandJazzFest will bring to the stage notable jazz performers as well as up-and-coming artists for diverse audiences. The event is family friendly.
