The 9:30 PM evening at the intimate cabaret will also feature the previously announced Christian Campbell, Brother Love and Karla Mosley.

In a statement actress-singer Thoms, who is currently in Los Angeles filming TV's "Cold Case" said, "Jeremy's music is so moving and powerful, for both the performer and the audience, that I'll go anywhere to sing his songs!"

Schonfeld added, "Tracie Thoms is the real deal. Not only is she unbelievably talented, but she's incredibly passionate about the projects she's involved with, and loyal to the people with whom she's working. That she counts me among those she wants to work with is an honor indeed."
