|Linda signing her new CD for fans|
When Linda Eder walked on the stage at the McCallum Theatre on Wednesday night, March 30, it felt like opening night of a Broadway play. Before Linda reached center stage, the audience was clapping and cheering for her. She has a tremendous following here in the Desert and she did not disappoint anyone at the McCallum. Linda said it was a long trip from the East Coast but it was worth it to perform for the appreciative audience in the Desert. Linda performed a wonderful collection of songs including many from her newly released CD, "Now". The music on this CD is exactly what you would expect on any Linda Eder CD. The songs are all sensitive stories told with wonderful melodies. This is Linda's trademark. Linda Eder unlike many singers, only picks songs that have strong lyrics and tell a story. Then she sings these songs with a sensitive understanding of exactly what the composers had in mind. All great singers have the ability to bring lyrics to life, and Linda Eder is a great singer. Linda performed for an hour and one half with no break and received a rousing standing ovation when she finished. Linda is truly one of the most talented singers performing today. She is an American music treasure! Make sure you pick up her new CD; it's really good!
