NIAGARA FALLS, ON, Dec. 2, 2013 /CNW/ - Oscar winner Jamie Foxx and Grammy winner Tony Bennett are among the stars to be spotlighted in Fallsview Casino's slate of March entertainment.
Academy Award-winner Jamie Foxx shows why he's considered an ultimate triple threat in the entertainment industry as he performs live in concert for two nights. A Grammy Award-winning musician, Foxx has produced four chart-topping studio albums on the Billboard 200 including Peep This (1994), Unpredictable (2005), Intuition (2008) and Best Night of My Life (2010).
In addition to his successful career in comedy and music, Foxx has also achieved an impressive career in film, starring in box office hits like Dreamgirls, Collateral and Django Unchained. Foxx won an Academy Award for Best Actor in 2005 for his portrayal of the legendary Ray Charles in Ray, among other notable award nods. He is the first African-American actor to be nominated for two Oscars in the same year, and is only the second man in history to receive two acting Oscar nominations in the same year for two different movies, Ray and Collateral.
The star power continues with Hooray For Hollywood, a revue of songs from the most popular movie musicals of the past 50 years. Featuring timeless songs from Singing in the Rain and Dirty Dancing to Mamma Mia and All That Jazz, plus more, this exciting musical production includes a stunning cast of singers and dancers, authentic choreography and incredible set designs.
