54 Below

A Nonprofit Cabaret Venue

Diamond Essence White, from Broadway’s The Lion King and Dear Evan Hansen, makes her 54 Below solo debut in Diamond Under Pressure (Why Not Me?). Paying homage to musical artists and genres that have influenced her vocally and the shows that have built her career, Diamond performs the songs that have spoken to her most as a singer and as a musical theatre artist. She will revisit songs from her Dear Evan Hansen days, songs from musical giants like Whitney Houston and The Clark Sisters, and songs from other musicals that she performed in prior to making her Broadway debut. Diamond is often more comfortable playing a character on stage or singing background behind artists, but she challenges herself by stepping to the front while inspiring and empowering  others to do the same through the story of her journey. Conducted and co-arranged by the award-winning maestro Damien Sneed.
