“Doris the Songstress” scheduled for Newport This Summer

img_6920.JPGI met, dined with, and performed for Doris Duke in Newport, RI, 1991. Due to an extraordinary likeness, I will be performing as Doris instead of myself this coming summer in Newport. Doris loved jazz and gospel and often disguised herself so she could sing in clubs without notice. I loved Doris. She was hip. She was smart. She was generous. The gossipy junk that passes for biography on TV and in film is an insult to her memory. I intend to show the best of Doris. She deserves it.
