2015 METROSTAR Audience Favorite Josephine Bianco debuts her first show. In 2015 she wowed the judges and finished 7th out of 60 contestants, Since then she has gone gone to sing in front of Michael Feinstein, and most recently she made her New York City Cabaret Convention Debut all at just the age of 15.
Now she returns to the Metropolitan Room to celebrate her birthday with her first ever show. Josephine will be singing some of her favorite songs and be joined by some of her dear friends for some fabulous duets.
The most impressive among newcomers was Josephine Bianco, who at only the age of 15, wowed the crowd with her rendition of “People.” Given its difinitive performance by Barbra Streisand and efforts by so many others, for a singer so young to try it was indeed a challenge. But Bianco brought something new to the number, reaching deeply into it to find the feelings within the lyrics and music and the result was intense sensitivity. Her talent was especially impressive– a highllght of the night.
A finalist at both the Metrostar and Michael Feinstein’s Great American Songbook Academy competitions, 15 year-old Josephine Bianco offers Jule Styne/Bob Merrill’s “People” displaying all the right instincts. The performer takes her time, looks into audience faces, and imbues the number with both personal expression and subtle modulations.
