Attendees of this year’s Huntsman World Senior Games Concert & Celebration, held on Tuesday, October 15, at the Dixie State University Burns Arena are in for a real treat. Featured entertainment is Las Vegas V Theater regular Hitzville - The Show. And this is for sure a show you won't want to miss. Featuring singer, dancer, and actress extraordinaire, Jin Jin Reeves, Hitzville: The Show, is a Motown Revue that will have your singing along and dancing in the aisles.
Jin Jin began her career at an early age. Growing up in Detroit, MI during a time when the city was at an artistic peak. Always an entertainer, her deeply rooted talents emerged instantly. Jin Jin was heavily engaged in dance, songwriting, and singing; however, as an eager pre-teen, committed to distinguishing herself in the field of entertainment, Jin Jin Reeves began to study acting as a means to further diversify her skill set. That decision eventually caught the interests of Stevie Wonder, Martha Reeves, and The Julliard School of Performing Arts which led to a Diana Washington scholarship and a host of performance opportunities. Additionally, Jin Jin received an abundance of attention from Motown Legends such as "Gladys Knight" and the "Four Tops." Following these events, she was recruited to appear on Ed McMahon's Star Search where she finished second.
From the classroom to the stage, her exhilarating performances have enabled an energetic, soulful, audience experience that is extraordinary. As an actress, she has been featured in a multitude of shows and plays, including Lorraine Hansberry's "A Raisin in the Sun" and Steven Spielberg's "Amistad." She has graced the stage at the American Music Awards and performed under dance greats such as Alvin Ailey. In the music world is where you will find some of her biggest feats, as she has shared the stage with a number of musical legends including "Barry White" and "The Temptations." All of these events have aided in molding Jin Jin into the dynamic, passionate, and talented individual that is the total entertainment package. Jin Jin recently completed her sophomore album, Living Proof. Simply put, she is the total package.
In addition, Hitzville - The Show features a cast of talented, accomplished performers that include a trio of women, a quartet of men and the seven-member Hitzville Band. Jin Jin Reeves stars in the show, but she is quick to give credit to her band for some of the show's tremendous success. "I have the best band in the world... The guitar player comes from Stevie Wonder and the musical director from Gladys Knight, and of course the drummer from Diana Ross!"
This celebratory event is free to the public. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and the show begins at 7:00 p.m.
Thanks to the generous support of the Larry H. Miller Group, the admission is free for everyone.
