Kallen Esperian Sings Led Zeppelin

Posted By on Mon, Sep 24, 2007 at 4:00 AM

Memphis' own operatic diva singing a Led Zeppelin classic? Yep, it's "The Immigrant Song," and you can hear it for yourself on her latest CD. And you can read why she's stretching her repertoire, in BostonNOW's latest edition.

Kallen Esperian grew up hearing her mother play Nat King Cole, and in high school she loved musical theater. "I'd never been to the opera, but somehow I had an operatic voice," says Esperian, who has performed on the world's great stages with stars like the late Luciano Pavarotti and Placido Domingo.

Recently the sound engineer of her Christmas CD came up with a list of songs -- classics, jazz, and rock -- that he thought would fit her voice and style.

Find out more here. And you can also check out an MP3 of "Immigrant Song."
