Jill Zadeh home for the holidays

Singer Jill Zadeh is back on the Island for the holidays, and she will perform at the Harbor View Hotel this Saturday, Dec. 22 at 8 pm.

This past March, she headlined two sold-out shows at the hotel’s restaurant turned nightclub, performing contemporary and classic pop hits. This time around she will sing selections from her Christmas album as well as some original tunes.

Ms. Zadeh has sung with some of the biggest names in the pop music business, including Janet Jackson and Diana Ross, among many others. She is currently living in L.A. where she is recording an album with her band Soul Crush. Originally from Martha’s Vineyard, Ms. Zadeh is excited to be back at the Harbor View and to get the chance to perform some of the songs from her Christmas album including “I’ll be Home for Christmas,” “O Holy Night,” and the soulful pop hit “Grown Up Christmas List,” which was made popular by Amy Grant.

Tickets are $20 at the door, cash only.
