Born in New York City, Carla Valenti grew up listening to Sarah Vaughn and other jazz luminaries. Encouraged by her family and friends, she reached the stage at the MGM Grand in Reno, Nevada, at the age of 21. Since then, Valenti has been entertaining audiences nationally and internationally. Critics called her sold out concert in London a “masterclass performance,” and her recording from that concert, Live in London, received rave reviews. The Chicago Tribune says, “Valenti is a terrifically appealing entertainer with an agile voice, sure stage presence, and singing style that often evokes the late, great Dinah Washington.”
