André De Shields: A Video Glimpse of an Artiste Extraordinaire
The Bistro Award team created a video montage for the multi-award-winning artiste extraordinaire, André De Shields, when he was honored with its 2018 Bob Harrington Lifetime Achievement Award. However, as things can happen during a live performance, we never got the chance to show it! So, here it is now, a two-and-a-half minute glimpse of this actor-singer-dancer’s multi-faceted over 5o-year career. Watch those moves, feel the emotion that he portrays on his face and expresses in the lyrics, listen to the unique voice that can sustain a note that seems to go on forever. It’s our belated Valentine’s gift for all of you.
