Her soulful voice and onstage energy are the perfect way to usher in the New Year.

The night will begin with an opulent reception featuring champagne, caviar, freshly shucked oysters, a sushi bar, charcuterie and cheese stations, and a seafood bar. Once visitors have settled in for the evening, they will enjoy a delectable five-course plated meal featuring lobster consommé en croute, truffle risotto, Dover sole meuniere and chanterelles, tournedos of beef Rossini with potato gratin and green beans amandine, and a dessert course with macaroons, chocolate and truffles.
