Soul diva Karen Underwood is delighted to announce an Irish Spring Tour in March, April & May bringing her autobiographical show, The Nina in Me, to venues across Ireland. A journey through her rich and varied life, of coming to understand sexuality and spirituality, The Nina In Me documents a life much less ordinary, punctuated with the music of Karen’s greatest musical inspiration Nina Simone.

A Chicago native, Karen has made Cork City her home for nearly two decades, performing her favourite, inspirational songs crossing the genres of spiritual, gospel, jazz, American folk and popular music. She has captured the hearts and minds of audiences right throughout Ireland with her powerful, touching and unique style, performing in The National Concert Hall, Cork Opera House, Vicar Street, The Olympia Theatre, The Everyman Theatre and the INEC, as well as becoming one of the most popular features at many festivals countrywide including Guinness Cork Jazz Festival, Electric Picnic, Castlepalooza and Body and Soul. Most recently, Karen featured in the ProdiJIG: The Revolution – a critically acclaimed Irish Dance spectacular in Cork Opera House in Summer 2016 (returning Summer 2017)

Speaking about her adopted home, and her transformation into Chicago diva, Karen says:

“I am delighted to bring Nina and Me to the Carnegie Arts Centre.  It was Munster that I discovered my true self and Munster named me the Chicago diva. During my early days, in the back of the Cork Opera house, I found my singing voice and in this beautiful green isle I came to understand my sexuality and spirituality. Along with an intimate group of the country’s finest musicians, I can’t wait to share my journey – all of the highs and lows – with my adopted people in a country that I have grown to love.”
