Cathedral Concerts Welcomes The Go-Go’s Former Lead Singer April 5 at 8PM
CLEVELAND (November 3, 2015) – Cathedral Concerts, recognized by the Cleveland Plain Dealer as “one of the most unusual (and diverse) endeavors to hit the city in some time,” is presenting Belinda Carlisle – former lead singer of The Go-Go’s for an intimate performance at the gorgeous Trinity Cathedral on Tuesday, April 5 at 8:00 p.m.
Ms. Carlisle has had a wildly successful career dating back to The Go-Go’s debut album release in 1981. Beauty and the Beat, featuring the hits “We Got The Beat” and “Our Lips Are Sealed,” is considered one of the cornerstone albums of the “new wave” era. The album broke The Go-Go’s wide and far and was responsible for paving the way for a host of other new American acts in the genre. The album went to #1 in the USA and marked the first time an all-female band who wrote their own music and played their own instruments achieved a No. 1 album.
After leaving The Go-Go’s, Carlisle went on to an equally successful solo career that still thrives today. “Heaven Is a Place on Earth” went to #1, “I Get Weak,” #2 and “Mad About You,” #3. All three songs remain staples on US radio today and make Belinda Carlisle one of the most important and lasting female artists of the modern music era.
“I can’t wait for this concert,” stated Steve Lindecke, Elevation Group managing partner and Cathedral Concerts’ executive producer. “Howard Jones was such a fun and uplifting experience when we hosted him last March. It was great to see how into it the crowd was. The music of the 80s was big for a reason and we expect a similar vibe for Belinda Carlisle.”
“We are very excited to host Belinda Carlisle. The diversity of musicians brought to Trinity through the Cathedral Concerts is exposing new audiences to our beautiful church and spreading our message of ‘all are welcome’,” says the Very Rev. Tracey Lind, Dean of Trinity Cathedral. “We look forward to Belinda sharing her hit songs in our sacred space.”
