In 1963, Patsy Cline tragically died in a plane accident at age 30. Despite her short life, she has become a legendary voice in the United States. "Walking After Midnight," “Crazy” and “I Fall to Pieces” were just a few of her many hits she released. With a country music background, Cline’s success was marked by her crossover into pop music.
Georgia-based singer and actor Katie Deal has dedicated much of her career to performing as Patsy Cline. She has toured the nation twice with the theatrical production “A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline.” More recently, she has been touring with her original show "Today, Tomorrow and Forever: A Tribute to Patsy Cline," a concert of Cline’s songs featuring storytelling about how Cline has influence Deal’s career and life.
Deal performs "Today, Tomorrow and Forever: A Tribute to patsy Cline" at the Roswell Cultural Arts Center Saturday evening at 8 p.m.
“As an actor, as a singer, as a woman, there is so much you can learn from her and her story,” said Deal. “That’s the challenge of trying to sing her music because there’s no way. I don’t care how good you are and how much you emulate her. No will ever be Patsy Cline. There was something about her that was untouchable.”
