Sylvia Benentt: For You
“Man, the lady can sing! Her magic gets to the ears and the hearts of the audience.” – Lionel Hampton
She’s a Grammy nominated international recording artist and song–writer who has performed at Presidential Inaugurations and opened for such renowned artists as Bob Hope, Phyllis Diller, Jackie Mason, Dizzy Gillespie, Barry Gibb and David Brenner. Discovered by the legendary Lionel Hampton, she has since captivated audiences and critics alike with her sultry, honeyed tones and seductive blend of jazz and pop. She’s the inimitable, unforgettable Sylvia Bennett.
Sylvia and Lionel Hampton first worked together on the Grammy nominated Sentimental Journey. A second project, There Will Never Be Another You, was a CD/DVD tribute she dedicated to her beloved mentor and would be followed by six more CDs: Songs From the Heart, It’s Christmas Time, Smile, Sonríe, C’est Si Bon, and Best Love Songs. Sonríe was inspired by her passion for Latin music and culture, realizing one of her most cherished dreams: a Spanish–language recording of beloved classics, along with “Por Tí,” a love song she wrote for her husband. The album has been dubbed” an irresistible Latin seduction, a tropical concoction as intoxicating as a first kiss.” Sonríe’s critical acclaim encouraged Sylvia to continue reaching for international frontiers, and C’est Si Bon, was conceived. This French–language album transports you to “a world of enchantment where romance reigns, fancy takes flight, and Paris beckons.”
Sylvia’s last release, Best Love Songs, is a compilation of her fan’s favorite songs. It includes classics from the American songbook like “Embraceable You,” “Someone to Watch Over Me” and “They Can’t Take That Away From Me” among many others. All of Sylvia’s music can be found on iTunes, Amazon.com, CD Baby and other online retailers.
In November 2013, Sylvia took her art to a whole new level with the introduction of the first product, It’s Christmas Time, in the Sylvia Bennett Gift Collection. She then followed it with From the Heart and Something to Make You Smile. These “all–in–one” CD greeting cards combine the gift of music and a card that lasts forever. This unique presentation can be used for any occasion from personal gifts like birthdays, anniversaries and holidays (Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Grandparents’ Day, etc.) as well as corporate gifts, hostess gifts, party favors, and even fundraising!
Sylvia Bennett continues her journey into smooth original music… her brand-new album FOR YOU, delivers another successful set of contemporary, sensuous songs from the Grammy-nominated, Miami-based vocalist and songwriter.
