Holmes has created a warm and inviting show, perfect to share with family and friends this holiday. Together they will put their own spin on traditional holiday favorites, as well as performing by popular request, “William the Angel” and songs from Holmes’ first-ever holiday CD, “Hallelujah.” During the performances, Holmes will pay tribute to his late mother Audrey, a former British opera singer, who passed away earlier this year.
Holmes’ fans know him as more than just a singer. He’s famous for making every performance an original and captivating the audience with his signature style. Among his many recordings is the Top 10 smash hit “Playground In My Mind (My Name Is Michael).” His album “Edges” produced several standout songs, including the single “Feel Like Makin’ Love.” Holmes and long-time friends Susan Anton, Domenick Allen and Martin Nievera regularly unite as “Vocal Soup” to perform a showcase of solo performances, duets and group numbers.
With a long history of entertaining audiences in Las Vegas, Clint is known for his six-year run in “Clint Holmes at Harrah’s.” Named Las Vegas’ “Best Singer” for four times and “Entertainer of the Year” three times by readers of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Holmes’ fame stretches far beyond Southern Nevada. He was also Atlantic City’s “Entertainer of the Year” three times, and starred in “Clint Holmes’ Sophisticated Rhythms,” a dynamic stage show that traveled through music from the 1940s to the present.
His 1996 critically acclaimed musical “Comfortable Shoes,” which opened in New Jersey, was a poignant and uplifting journey into Holmes’ interracial family’s struggle to find its identity. In 2002, an updated version of the musical opened at The Royal George Theatre in Chicago. Among the show’s rave reviews, the Chicago Tribune called it “a night of fully realized theatrical entertainment.”
In a career that began with an invitation from Joan Rivers to be her sidekick and announcer on “The Late Show,” Clint Holmes has proven himself as a well-respected performer, even earning the honor of being the featured performer at the Democratic National Convention on the evening of Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential nomination. Also familiar to fans’ ears, Holmes was the voice of Lowenbrau Beer for four years.
