Showtime Australia’s music production The Greatest Love of All: The Whitney Houston Show starring Belinda Davids will make its debut in the Chicago area at the Rosemont Theatre.
A five-piece band, backing vocalists and choreographed dancers will accompany Davids on stage as she pays tribute to Houston with live performances of the performer’s biggest hits including “I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” “How Will I Know,” “I Have Nothing,” “Didn’t We Almost Have it All,” “One Moment in Time,” “Queen of the Night” and 15 other hits.
Belinda Davids’ performance on Fox TV’s “Showtime at the Apollo” Christmas Special in December 2017, where her rendition of “I Will Always Love You” – on the very stage where Whitney Houston filmed her famous Greatest Love of All film clip, not only got an ovation from the live audience, but more than 10 million views of the performance video on Facebook in the days following.
Showtime Australia’s international production house, led by father and son team Johnny and Jono Van Grinsven, in the roles of Producer and Technical Director respectively, has put together custom-designed lighting, theatrical effects, and more than 20 different hand-crafted costumes to complete the sensory spectacle and keep audiences enthralled through the course of the two-hour show.
Though this is Davids’ first major US tour as the principal of The Greatest Love of All: The Whitney Houston Show, she’s no stranger to American audiences, having toured extensively as a backing vocalist for the likes of Keri Hilson, Keyshia Cole and Monica in earlier years. The production has been touring Europe, the UK, Middle East, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and Davids’ home country of South Africa since 2013.
