Corinne Bailey Rae at McCarter Theatre
Celebrated singer-songwriter Corinne Bailey Rae will perform live at McCarter Theatre on Tuesday, June 6 at 7:30 p.m.
From the very start of her career, Rae has demonstrated her talent for writing and performing songs with a free, airy quality that belies their emotional heft. The soulful rhythm and blues crooner debuted her self-titled solo album in 2006, which hit No. 1 on U.K. charts driven by singles “Put Your Records On” and “Like a Star.” Her second album, The Sea, was nominated for the Mercury Prize in 2010 and she’s taken home two Grammys — her first for her work on Herbie Hancock’s River: The Joni Letters, and another for her version of Bob Marley’s “Is This Love.” Rae’s music has frequently appeared in film and television. She composed the theme to Stan Lee’s Lucky Man, covered Coldplay’s “The Scientist” for Fifty Shades Darker and “New to Me,” which Tracee Ellis Ross performed in the 2020 film The High Note. Her latest album is 2016’s The Heart Speaks in Whispers.
Ticket prices range from $25 to $65. To purchase, visit www.mccarter.org or call 609. 258.2787. McCarter Theatre is located at 91 University Place in Princeton.
