Music performed by Deborah Lippmann with Neal Smith on percussion, Dexron Douglas on drums.
“Deborah Lippmann’s ravishing voice evokes the lush life of smoky jazz clubs and a more glamorous time… she’s poised to be the new voice in the girl group that includes such jazzy singers as Norah Jones, Dianne Reeves, and Diana Krall.“ (Lisa Robinson, Music Editor, Vanity Fair)

The event included a Silent Auction of original artwork by Aaron Holliday.

And here is the collection of the Patrick McMullan page. If someone has a paid account for it (or other picture hosts like or I would pay for bigger pictures, but am not willing to install a monthly payment for it. Maybe we can find a solution…

Mystery at the Mind

In 2010 Kathryn did another performance with WordTheatre®.

  1. Kathryn is a generous women that's why I love her. She uses her celebrity for great causes and not for commercials or some stupid things.

  2. Completely agree, potzina. I can't stand celebrities that are snobs.

    Great pics, havers.


  3. You both are so right. I love Kathryn's work but all her social projects and kindness makes her a special and wonderful human.
