SAN ANTONIO â€“ Three hours to the east, Bette Midlerâ€™s â€œDivine Interventionâ€ tour rolls into Houstonâ€™s Toyota Center for a concert tonight. Anyone whoâ€™s seen the Divine Miss M knows that Midler doesnâ€™t pull off those fabulous,highly entertaining multi-costume shows all by herself.
Especially noteworthy is one of her backup singers and dancers â€” Carol Hatchett.
Hatchett is an EDM artist in her own right and part of a duo with Daniel Pearson called The BareRoot featuring Carol Hatchett. The duo have a new EP called â€œBorn to Love.â€ Itâ€™s the follow-up to â€œDance Under the Lights.â€
Tracks like â€œTurn Up the Night,â€ â€œBorn to Loveâ€ and â€œBreakthroughâ€ offer a sophisticated take on EDM and trance with jazzy R&B flourishes that recall the best of Donna Summer, Diana Ross, Michael Jackson and En Vogue and manages to be trippy, playful and sultry at the same time.
Odds are Hatchett is one of the talented crew in a whacky outfit tonight â€” from mermaids to 1940s fly girls â€” dancing behind the star of the show. Thatâ€™s a Harlettesâ€™ gig. But â€œBorn to Loveâ€ shows thereâ€™s much more to this talented choreographer and actress once the curtain goes down and the house lights go up.
