Acclaimed singer and actress Julia Hawkins has performed extensively through out the Midwest and the South to rave reviews. A native of southeastern Michigan, Julia holds a degree in acting from Siena Heights University and has appeared in numerous films and commercials. However, her great love is the stage with more than 60 professional credits to her name.
Julia counts Elaine Stritch, Judy Garland, Liza Minnelli, Sylvia Syms, Barbara Cook, Mary Cleere Haran, Nancy Lamott, Rosemary Clooney and Colleen McHugh among the great women who have influenced her career. A stage veteran of thirty years, she has worked everywhere from Michigan to Georgia, including the Croswell Opera House, the Peachtree Playhouse and the Kerrytown Concert House. Julia is equally passionate about cabaret, a venue where she truly shines. Her unforgettably rich alto voice and larger-than-life personality have captivated audiences from Atlanta to Chicago.
Julia also lectures occasionally on the history of cabaret, so she knows whereof she sings.
Julia looks forward with great anticipation to making her Davenport’s debut.
