Henry, who began singing as a child in Philadelphia, says she prefers to perform classic jazz mostly songs from the great American songbook mixed with a few originals because of the musics ability to tell stories and convey honest emotion. I can relate to the lyrics honestly, she says. I dont have to force myself to say, OK, would I say these words or can I even feel these words? Watch Henry get in touch with her velvety-soft side this Friday at the Jazz at MOCA open-air concert at the Museum of Contemporary Art. The show begins at 8 p.m. and is free.
