THE LOVE GODDESS TOUR
Cheri Maree's The Enchanted Love Tour will launch, appropriately, in her home town of Columbia, SC with two shows at Wet Willie's on Sunday, August 24, 2014 at 7:00 pm and 9:00 pm. Born in Muncie, Indiana this talented songstress’ career commenced at the tender age of five, singing in churches, talent contests and with local bands. The Enchanted Love Tour, a global venture, will traverse several cities, and is expected to wind up in Australia. Cheri's genre ranges from jazz, rock, soul and gospel, spanning anything from Streisand to Earth, Wind and Fire.
Cheri Maree’s performance style is, at once, virtuoso and luminous. The Enchanted Love Tour is not a random catchy idiom chosen for its audio appeal. This has far more depth and more than very special meaning. Says Cheri,
“When I perform, my purpose is to love you. When I set my intention to love, it takes me to a zone. It is a gift to be on the planet at this time and tap into one’s divine purpose and be able to express it. We all have a gift.” Reminiscent of her recent tour spanning 8 cities, from Moscow to a town, just north of Mongolia, Cheri Maree was passionately embraced by the Soviets and her persona transformed by their reception:
“No matter where I go, people want the same thing; they want to be loved. People responded with a joy that radiated even though we did not understand one another’s language.” On the tour to Russia, Cheri remarked, “When I transform I become very centered about why I am here; and the gift I have been given,”
Forthcoming, is Cheri’s new CD “360 Degree Woman – Rebirth”, the first of Cheri’s upcoming trilogy where she will deliver her story in song. The theme for the CD was inspired by a dream Cheri had some seven years ago. She instinctively felt a creative intuition which would later evolve, to become “360 Degree Woman”.
Cheri Maree’s ensemble is composed of several very progressive artists of the same mindset coming from “that Love Vibe” says Cheri. Musical Director, Mike Stone who landed a final round in America’s Got Talent, also performing with Cheri is a lineup of Sunshyne, Triston Cills, Tavares Weston, Seldon Ferguson and Brent Suber..at the very least, you will leave The Enchanted Love Tour, ‘Enlightened!’
