KAREN Grainger & CHRIS JOHN
For the last 15 years, Karen Grainger and Chris John have been travelling the globe performing their own one-person, multi-impersonation shows. Now, these two experienced artists have teamed-up to create a one-of-a-kind, musical extravaganza called ‘VOICES’.
VOICES not only showcases the incredible talents of these two performers, it features a combination of artists you’ll rarely see. Some of the superstars joining Karen and Chris on stage include; the Bee Gees, Cher, Pat Benatar, Sting, Katy Perry, U2, Lady Antebellum and countless others. This show has it all! With VOICES, Karen and Chris set a new standard for impersonation shows.
Karen enjoyed a very successful impersonating career recreating such iconic artists as Reba McEntire, Celine Dion and Cher. Audiences were spellbound by Karen’s skill at recreating these diverse characters, capturing their voices as well as their mannerisms.
But it wasn’t long before Karen needed to sink her teeth into something more challenging. So Karen and her Business Manager and husband, Don, teamed up to write not one, but two very successful comic impression shows… ‘All In One’ and ‘Lasting Impressions’.
Both shows feature a wealth of artistry, voices and exciting costumes while showcasing Karen’s incredible voice. Audiences are treated to an evening of entertainment, which is both visually and vocally spectacular. You won’t believe your eyes or your ears!
While working for the biggest impersonation company in the world, ‘Legends in Concert’, Chris traveled the globe as Elwood Blues of the Blues Brothers. But Chris had more than one voice inside him. In fact, there were a multitude of voices in there.
Chris created ‘The Chris John Show’, which features the some biggest stars from the last 40 years. What sets Chris apart is his unique ability to recreate a wide variety of artists – both male and female. Not only does Chris mimic each artist's vocal style, he takes on their physical mannerisms. It's truly amazing!
He’s a man who can recreate more celebrities than a Hollywood plastic surgeon, vocal impressionist, Chris John!
