A DC-area native, Roberta Flack went from being a schoolteacher who sang sets at Mr. Henry's on Capitol Hill to an international recording sensation almost overnight. Over a four-decade career, her hits "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face," "Killing Me Softly with His Song," and "Where Is the Love" have sparked love stories and dance parties and entertained audiences and heads of state the world over. Now the Grammy Award–winning singer-songwriter pays tribute to The Beatles with her newest album Let It Be Roberta. From "The Long and Winding Road" to "Here Comes the Sun," Roberta brings her folk, soul, and jazz styles to hits by John, Paul, George, and Ringo, as well as some of her favorite tunes in these homecoming concerts with the NSO Pops. A "master of the art of turning large venues into intimate spaces with her soulful balladry and gospel-tinted piano arrangements" (The Washington Post) Roberta Flack will dazzle in concerts conducted by Steven Reineke.
