Trina Johnson Finn is a master interpreter
Superstar headliners aside, successful singers in Las Vegas need to be vocal chameleons, able to bring to life the songs of a variety of legends and current chart-toppers, and Trina Johnson Finn is among the city’s best at the art of interpretation. Johnson Finn has worked as an impersonator (creating tributes to singers like Toni Braxton and Whitney Houston), and she’s performed in shows on the Strip, including Legends in Concert and Vegas! The Show. She’s also taken the stage with the actual legends, providing vocals for acts ranging from MC Hammer to Barbra Streisand.
Now Johnson Finn is getting a showcase of her own, paying tribute to all of the iconic female singers who’ve influenced her over the years. Johnson Finn’s LipStick Diva show features her performing songs by Billie Holliday, Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Aretha Franklin and more, putting her own jazzy spin on her musical inspirations. The master interpreter is ready for her solo spotlight.
