Janice graces Javea stage EVERGREEN SINGING sensation Janice Harrington is the latest star to join the growing list of talent invited to perform at the highly successful series ‘Jazz at the Parador’. by Jack Troughton The blues, jazz, and gospel legend appears at the Javea hotel on Friday 20th June at 8.30pm and is ready to thrill an audience with a set containing everything from Be-Bop and swing to blues and jazz. Born into a music loving family in Cleveland, Ohio – her ‘mom’ was a Dinah Washington fan – her launch into the industry was delayed when she became pregnant at 15. However, motherhood suited Janice, at the ripe old age of 21 she had five children including twins. Her singing career received a kick-start in 1969 when she performed at United States military shows during the Vietnam War and was followed by a well-deserved residency at the Flamingo hotel in Las Vegas. Acting and television roles also poured in but inspired by the need to broaden her horizons, Janice moved to Europe in 1988 and never looked back – touring with musical greats and performing at key ‘historic’ events. As a veteran of the music scene, she now works with children and disabled people and runs authentic American musical workshops.

And when not busy touring or visiting her “huge” family in the USA, Janice lives quietly with husband Werner in the picturesque German city of Luneberg. Tickets for the concert are 12.50€ available from the reception desk at the Javea Parador or can be reserved in Janice advance via the email reservasjazzparador@gamil.com Harrington
