SMC to perform 'Believe: The Music of Cher' with special guest Chad Michaels

SEATTLE MEN'S CHORUS
'BELIEVE: THE MUSIC OF CHER'
MARION OLIVER MCCAW HALL
March 30 @ 8pm
March 31 @ 2pm


For two performances only, more than 200 singers from Seattle Men's Chorus (SMC) will bask in six decades of #1 hits. 'Believe: The Music of Cher' runs at Seattle's McCaw Hall (321 Mercer St.) on March 30 at 8pm and March 31 at 2pm. It features a special appearance by the nation's premier Cher impersonator Chad Michaels who hair-flipped his way to the championship of 'RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars.'

As part of the Seattle Choruses' Youth Engagement Program singers from Washington Middle School will join SMC on stage on Sunday, March 31 to create a multi-generational chorus and premiere a new work. Together, under the guidance of composer Jim Papoulis, and published by Hal Leonard, the new piece evolved from the young singers' collective thoughts, fears and hopes revealed in a 2018 workshop.

With 100 million albums sold and countless reinventions, no other diva compares to the Goddess of Pop and her groundbreaking success as a music, movie, and style icon. 'If I Could Turn Back Time,' 'Believe,' and 'Strong Enough' are just a few of the Cher hits SMC will perform. As always, SMC packs their performances with all the songs, sparkle and sequins you'd expect for the ultimate tribute.

Tickets to McCaw Hall Seattle performances are $25-$81 and available at www.seattlechoruses.org or over the phone at (206) 388-1400. The Seattle area box office is open Monday through Friday, 11am-6pm.

About Chad Michaels
In September 2012, Chad Michaels joined the cast of 'RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars' which pits the best Drag Queens in the business against each other. Needless to say, Chad rose to the top and became the winner of the $100,000 Grand Prize, and was the first person to be inducted into the 'Drag Queen Hall of Fame'! Chad Michaels has dedicated 20 years to the exciting art of Celebrity Impersonation. Most notably, Chad's tribute to Cher has earned him international acclaim and granted him the opportunity to collaborate with, and entertain for, industry favorites including David Foster, Elton John, Cyndi Lauper, Christina Aguilera, Gwen Stefani, Tori Spelling, Perez Hilton, and even the Diva herself, Cher. Chad's career profile includes a two-year engagement with the Las Vegas production of Norbert Aleman's 'An Evening at La Cage' and tours of the UK and South America. Television credits include the 'Cher E! True Hollywood Story,' the 'Cher - A&E Biography,' 'MAD TV,' 'Tori and Dean - Inn Love,' 'Women's Murder Club,' and 'Comedy Central's Gene Simmons Celebrity Roast.' Chad continues to be in demand on the national nightclub and corporate circuit by delivering fresh and exciting re-creations to clients and audiences alike. Chad Michaels is a seasoned performer who hopes to leave you uplifted, entertained, and always wanting more! Chad recently impressed everyone with his performance as 'Cher,' for the legendary Cher, on 'The Talk.' Even Cher herself was impressed! Chad lives in San Diego, CA, with his partner, Adam.

About the SMC/SWC Youth Engagement Program
In 1994 Seattle Men's Chorus and Seattle Women's Chorus launched the Youth Ticket Program to provide cultural and personal enrichment opportunities for self-identified LGBTQ youth and allies. In recent years the program has evolved into the broader reaching Youth Engagement Program that incorporates motor coach transportation for youth organizations to events, a performance and composition-focused collaboration with the Washington Middle School, and a partnership with TeenTix to manage low-cost ticket requests for all Seattle-area teens.

About Seattle Men's Chorus/Seattle Women's Chorus
The internationally renowned Seattle Men's Chorus (founded 1979) and Seattle Women's Chorus (founded 2002) comprise the largest community choral organization in North America. Both choruses stand out as the largest LGBTQ-identified men's and women's choruses in the world. The choruses comprise one of the Pacific Northwest's largest, most vibrant and successful music organizations, performing in Seattle's most prestigious venues for an annual audience of more than 30,000 patrons.
