Jazz singer Rita Graham to take the stage at Holly Theater

POSTED: September 15, 2011 1:30 a.m.

Not many artists can say that Ray Charles produced their debut album, but Rita Graham owns those bragging rights.

The pair worked on the album, "Vibrations," for a year before it was released in late 1960s. After that, Graham joined Charles on the road as a vocalist with the Raylettes.

On Saturday, she will bring her talents to the stage of the Historic Holly Theater, 69 West Main St., Dahlonega.

The one-night-only performance will begin at 8 p.m.

Graham’s show fuses classic and contemporary versions of jazz and blues.

She has travelled the world performing with artists like Oscar Peterson and Kenny Burrell. Graham was also the featured vocalist on a tour with Mercer Ellington and the Duke Ellington Orchestra.

Tickets for her Dahlonega show are $20 per person.
