Cotton Club Diva

The singer Esther Ovejero and jazz music will be the stars of "Cotton Club Diva", leading us through a great selection of songs performed in the cinema by great music female legends. It is a tribute to the mythical New York nightclub and the title of Francis Ford Coppola’s film about the troubled era of Prohibition in the United States. The program will include songs like 'I say a little prayer for you ', immortalized by Dionne Warwick and Aretha Franklin and part of soundtracks for films such as' My Best Friend's Wedding' or 'The Valley of the Dolls'; 'Feeling good', by Nina Simone, which we remember from 'Point of no return’, 'Killing me softly with his song', which granted three Grammy Awards to Roberta Flack, included in the comedy 'A Big Boy', with Hugh Grant and a very young Nicholas Hoult.
