From ancient-world inspired chants to uplifting contemporary pop, singer, songwriter and recording artist Nadine Risha inspires a deep connection to one’s soul through music.
Nadine’s extensive musical theater, classical, and choral training expanded from the Orange County School of the Arts and the University of California, Irvine and led to a career in music all around the world. She is a frequent guest at concert halls and premiere venues around the world. She was in the original cast of Children of Eden with Stephen Schwartz in New York and in Washington D.C., she appeared at The Kennedy Center with Placido Domingo as Artistic Director. She has opened for Sheryl Crow, Dwight Yoakam, Vonda Shepard and Ben Vereen and is regularly seen performing at venues worldwide, from Las Vegas to Lebanon to China.
Along with continuous recording and performing projects in Los Angeles and abroad, Nadine is a key ingredient in Eye of Newt Circus. She writes and performs her original material in remarkable ways as these amazing Cirque du Soleil artists contort, swing and fly through the air. Cinematographer Rolf Kesterman (Janet Jackson, Celine Dion, Jennifer Lopez) shot a music video for her original song, “From Egypt to Omaha,” with this prestigious company.
Nadine is an integral member of The S.T.A.R.S. (Singers Taking Action Reaching Souls) founded by Motown legend Harvey Fuqua who introduced the world to Marvin Gaye and The Spinners. This international vocal ensemble performs at The United Nations, and in key venues in South Korea, Dubai, Malaysia and Hong Kong, uplifting souls through the power of music. www.starsfoundation.net
