Javier is Home
There is something powerful about the feeling to return to a place of belonging. So much of our lives revolve around finding a place to call home. We keep building that home into something more and more familiar. Join Javier Colon from “The Voice” at his triumphant return to Feinstein’s/54 Below for a celebration of the places we all call home. The combination of Javier’s soaring voice and his resonating story telling will create a connection with every member of the audience as this universal concept is explored through unique and compelling versions of all your Broadway favorites.
Javier Colon has a lot of heart. In fact, that heart is precisely why he captivated America as winner of the inaugural season of NBC’s hit television show, “The Voice.” It’s why he never gave up on his dream of a career in music even in the face of numerous setbacks and what seemed like endless adversity. It’s why every time he writes a song, it strikes a chord. According to Javier, “From an early age, I’d start mimicking the singers I’d hear on the radio,” he recalls. “With encouragement from my mom and a few teachers, I started performing at school. After that, I wanted to be all over anything that had to do with music.”
This presentation is proudly produced by Christine Donahue Brown and Renee Minahan, directed by Christy McIntosh-Newsom, and accompanied by musical director, Peter DeMarco.
Guest Performer: Arielle Jacobs
Currently starring on Broadway as Princess Jasmine in Disney’s Aladdin, Arielle Jacobs, has been called “one of the greatest theater artists of her generation” with a “powerful voice” who “could sing her way to world peace… literally.” Her debut solo album A Leap in the Dark – Live at Feinstein’s/54 Below is a story of dreams, hope, faith, fighting for what you believe in, and taking chances.
Please note that all artists and acts are subject to change at any time.
It’s his pure-tone tenor voice that sets him apart.
…while Javier might have been the first winner of The Voice, he remains one of the most talented artists ever to have graced its stage.
Javier Colon’s voice [is] still marvelously bright a dozen years after we first heard it…bringing both life and heart to a bunch of songs that could have sunk to simply pleasant with a lesser vocalist. It is impossible not to root for Colon’s success. Highly Recommended.
