Sutton has proven time and again that she is a triple threat. She is a talented singer, dancer and actress and her concert last night was too short.I did not want the evening to end as her voice is so beautiful. Every song was a winner but I was blown away by a dedication to her Mom. Sutton explained her Mom died a few years ago and she remembers listening to John Denver on an 8 track tape. When she sang “Sunshine on My Shoulders” I was fighting back the tears” as she moved me so much. I also adored the song “Twenty Seven” written for Sutton by John Wallowitch and Mark Waldrop. It was very funny about how all the roles she plays need to be under 27, which was brilliant since she is currently in Younger and she plays a 40-year-old pretending to be 26. Sutton’s concert was perfection. It makes me tear up thinking about it.  It was one of the concerts that will live inside you forever.
