Marlene in Vegas

"For many years I have been captivated by the unique, singular talent of Marlene Arden. She has a wonderful knack for taking a song whether today's hits or yesterday's standards and making them her own. Experience one of her performances if you can as her vocals and connection with an audience are only surpassed by her beauty."
