FEATURING 
Broadway sensation Morgan James

One voice is all it takes. The right vocalist can make  you fall in love at first listen, elicit tears, or bring you  back to a different era altogether. A microphone and a stage remain the only necessities. That holds true for New York-based soul singer, songwriter, and Broadway actress Morgan James.

Part of Morgan’s creative trajector y has become centered around her full album cover projects. She  covered D’Angelo’s “Black Messiah” one month after its release, Jeff Buckley’s “Grace” and a critically acclaimed full cover of Joni Mitchell’s “Blue”. 

She recently took on her most ambitious project to date: The Beatles “White” album, celebrating the 50th anniversary of its original release.

ICRF_Gala_Marika.jpg

Marika Fellegi is not your typical classical violinist. With 20 years of classical training under her belt, her continuous motivation and ability to mix the classical sound of the violin with a variety of genres is what sets her apart from fellow musicians. Mostly playing hip hop, pop and rnb but it doesn’t stop there. Her oriental and Eastern European origins convey to any tune she compose's or remixes a unique sound. She has performed in Canada, France, Australia, and Israel.
