Jerry Lanning and Carol Logen slip so demurely into song that it’s a stunning surprise to
discover that a song that seems no more than a conventional romantic ballad should be
sneaking toward such a finish. At its conclusion on opening night at Circle in the Square,
the gingerly dalliance with sweet but surprisingly commanding melody could have been
reprised six or eight times, then and there.
I want to thank you for being the message that helped me step onto the road I am walking today.
You gave me the gift of voice and helped me realize I have a gift to share with the world.
If I could stuff Christmas stockings with shining theatrical moments, I would pick Jerry Lanning
and Carol Logen singing “My Darling, My Darling,” with Raul Julia in the warm and winning
revival of “Where’s Charley” in Circle in the Square.
Her soprano voice is exquisite.
She has a regal beauty, with a soprano voice as clear and pure as Waterford Crystal.
… Her pure soprano voice endears her to the audience and makes each song soar with a
life all its own.
Carol Logen performed on Broadway for seventeen years in shows that include Dreamgirls, On The 20th Century, Evita, Sweeney Todd and Where’s Charley. While touring Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Bangkok with her two-person Andrew Lloyd Weber Review, she gave a command performance for the Queen of Thailand’s Birthday celebration.
The Village Voice said, “If I could stuff Christmas stockings with shining theatrical moments, I would pick Jerry Lanning and Carol Logen singing ‘My Darling, My Darling,’ with Raul Julia in the warm and winning revival of Where’s Charley in Circle in the Square, New York City.”
Together with August Gold and Joel Fotinos she co-founded Sacred Center New York, serving as it’s music and choir director and soloist. Performing with her vocal ensemble OneVoice she created the CDs Total Praise and Come My Beloved; she co-wrote the music and lyrics for her original CD I Set Myself Free.
Her soprano voice brings to life the heartfelt essence of each song she performs from Broadway to contemporary inspirational. But the song that is her Soul’s anthem is the Quaker Hymn, How Can I Keep From Singing.
“Through all the tumult and the strife, I hear that music ringing. It finds an echo in my soul, how can I keep from singing?”
Wherever the path of Life has led her, Carol Logen has never stopped singing.
