News   Broadway Aida Star To Sing in P-Town Concert Aug. 20 Recording artist and onetime Broadway Aida Deborah Cox will be the featured performer for a benefit concert at Provincetown Town Hall, in Provincetown, MA, 8 PM Aug. 20.

The show, titled An Evening With… will be "a mix of acoustic music and her R&B and club hits." The show marks the end of "Carnival," the week-long summer celebration in the resort town on Cape Cod. The concert was initiated last year, on the day after Carnival officially ends, as a fundraiser for the Provincetown Business Guild. Bea Arthur performed in 2004.

Cox is an internationally recognized recording artist. In 1995, her self-titled debut album (released on Arista Records), was executive produced by Clive Davis and went gold with the hit singles "Sentimental," "Who Do U Love" and "The Sound of My Tears." In 1996, her No. 1 single "Things Just Ain't the Same" appeared on the "Money Talks" soundtrack. In 1998, she found continued success and her first platinum album with "One Wish" (Arista Records).

In 2000, Cox starred in the feature film, "Love Come Down" (opposite Larenz Tate). In February 2000, she played a recurring role as San Francisco police detective Vanessa Swan on the CBS series "Nash Bridges." At the end of 2002, her third album, "The Morning After," was released on Clive Davis’ newly formed J Records. In July 2003, "Remixed," a collection of Deborah’s hit singles remixed by "the hottest club DJs," was released on J Records as her fan base grew worldwide.

In 2004 Cox joined the cast of Broadway's Aida in the title role.
