Award-winning actress and singer Ali Harper is bringing the critically-acclaimed, one-woman play Songs for Nobodies to Nelson.
Share five life-changing encounters between legendary divas Judy Garland, Patsy Cline, Edith Piaf, Billie Holiday and Maria Callas, and the everyday women whose lives they touched, interspersed with their iconic songs.
Songs for Nobodies is a one-of-a-kind showcase that reminds us that everybody has a story – and a song – worth hearing.
