After studying opera in her native New York City for over 15 years Gail decided to create her own show. Yet to be decided if it’s a blessing or a curse, Gail’s photographic memory enables her to remember almost everything she reads and hears. She compiled 2,000 songs in many different genres from which the audience may select anything they wish. A person simply has to call out what they’d like to hear and Gail performs it without accompaniment and from memory.

This hilariously bizarre spectacle truly offers something for everyone. If you want legitimate singing it’s there. If want to watch her throw down rap lyrics in an evening gown she’ll do that too!

“The Human Jukebox is probably one of the most impressive shows I’ve seen in quite a long time. Gail Whitmore sang about 60 songs with no accompaniment, no help and no lyrics. My favorite part was the medley where she sang 10 – 15 second clips of 40 different songs all in a row. It was amazing!” SPIN International

“Gail Whitmore’s act is at once clever and courageous…the talented singer is more than capable. She belts her way through a wide variety of tunes, concluding with a virtuosic mashup of song segments spontaneously pieced together from written suggestions gathered from the audience…Whitmore gave off the distinct impression that she could have gone on all night.” The Prague Post

“Will make you laugh ’til you cry. Go, go, go see Gail Whitmore’s ‘Human Jukebox’!” Peggy Brown, editor/writer, New York Newsday
