As part of the St. Charles Weddings and Events Walk this Saturday, May 22, visitors will be serenaded by two unique Chicago talents – Diva Montell and Jonny Lyons (as Elvis).
Diva Montell, a Chicago-based, classically-trained vocalist, is a dynamic and versatile performer who has played with or fronted for some of the giants of American music: Michael Bolton, IL Volo, KC & The Sunshine Band, The Drifters & The Jersey Boys. She is the recipient of the 2011 Leonardo DaVinci Award for Performing Arts, as well as the 2017 Joseph Cardinal Bernardin Humanitarian Award in Entertainment.
“I, as a Chicago area vocalist, have spent my entire life as an entertainer. VERSATILITY best describes me as a vocalist. From Sarah Brightman, Celine Dion, Donna Summer, Whitney Houston, all the way to Ann Wilson, as a trained opera singer I have not decided what I love more… so I do it all,” she says.
Jonny Lyons specializes in tributes, specifically Elvis (who he will be performing as in St. Charles) and Johnny Cash. Lyons and his 5-piece show band, Jonny Lyons and the Pride, entertain audiences throughout North America playing a mixture of standards and original music written by Lyons, all with a touch of nostalgia.
Montell and Lyons will be performing during the fashion show portion of the St. Charles Weddings & Events Walk. The fashion show will take place at the end of the walk at Club Arcada Speakeasy and Restaurant at the Arcada Theatre in St. Charles, starting at 1:30.
