Jacky Webbe first paid tribute to Diana Ross on "Stars in Their Eyes". Since then she has been travelling nationally and internationally paying tribute to the first lady of Motown. Her portrayal is "second to none" and her reputation and professionalism have grown and precede her wherever she goes. Not only do the audiences warm to her personality on first impression, but Jacky's voice and sparkling stage presence capture the full essence of the stage production of Miss Ross and she is able to entertain in her own inimitable style.
For a more intimate setting Jacky can also be perform Jazz, Blues and Swing for a more "laid-back" affair, calling upon some of the best musicians in the business to join her (a trio of musicians are normally used). Not only does she interact with the audience as a whole from start to finish, but there's always a particular surprise when she wanders through the tables in search of "a man for the night"!
