Waters to life through stories and songs in “The Life and Times of Ethel Waters.”
Weaver and pianist Delbert Collins will bring “The Life and Times of Ethel
Waters” to Music ‘n’ More at Lily Pads on Saturday, March 30 at 7:00 p.m. Tickets

Ethel Waters (1896-1977), who began her career as a blues singer, was the first African American to star in her own television show, the first African American woman to be nominated for a Prime time Emmy award and to star on Broadway, and the second African American nominated for an Oscar. A movie star and recording artist, Waters was a mid twentieth-century superstar.
