Dennis Collins Singer, Musician, Artist, Net Worth
Dennis Collins Singer, Musician, Artist, Net Worth -: Singer Dennis Collins spent a lot of time in Manhattan last week. In order to be ready for “Live Rocks NYC,” a sold-out charity event at the Beacon Theatre with Sheryl Crow, Robert Plant, and Whoopi Goldberg serving as co-emcees, the professional vocalist from Stamford underwent repeated all-day practices. In addition, he sang (off-camera) in three skits on the most recent “Saturday Night Live” episode, which was hosted by John Mulaney.
Collins, a touring performer, lecturer, and studio and recording session singer, said during a break in the rehearsal, “As a musician on-call, you get to do all kinds of great things.”
He said, “I’ve had the tremendous privilege to work with many of our most famous artists. The Live Rocks NYC performance also included Sheryl Crow, Robert Plant, Buddy Guy, Hozier, Keb Mo, Taj Mahal, Bernie Williams, Lukas Nelson, Will Lee, and Paul Shaffer. The nonprofit God’s Love We Deliver, which aids persons with terminal illnesses, receives a portion of the event’s proceeds.
The other names on Collin’s portfolio from throughout his career include superstars like James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, Sting, Billy Joel, David Bowie, Diana Ross, Beyoncé, Willie Nelson, Bonnie Raitt, and Jackson Browne.
The singer said, “I’ve had the opportunity to learn from my musical experiences in establishing my own craft while working with these musicians and experiencing so many different musical styles.
The vocalist Collin and Norwalk saxophonist and series curator Jim Clark will play together this Sunday, March 10, as part of the “Sunday Jazz to Inspire Your Day” music series at the Norwalk Public Library. The purpose of the three-part series, which ends on Sunday, was for Clark to ask local musicians he knows to perform for audiences in the neighborhood.
I’ve known Dennis and his wife Sharon for almost twenty years,” Clark remarked. I’ve admired his career as he’s performed and recorded with some of the biggest names in the music business while traveling the globe. “We used to play in church together, ‘back in the day,’ and I have always loved his music.
Because of the silky and seductive tone of Dennis’ voice, I am overjoyed that he will be a member of this series.
Collins is no stranger to the Norwalk stage; he is a full-service music education and performance firm that offers initiatives for artists and instructors, in addition to being a professional vocalist. Precision Performance Productions is owned by Collins.
In addition to being a professional musician, he has served as a judge in a number of the Wall Street Theatre’s “CT’s Got Talent” events. He views his role in music as assisting up-and-coming performers.
“As a singer and musician, I have a responsibility to share my learning experiences with other musicians, especially young musicians coming up, as others have done for me,” the performer said. “In order to help people reach their greatest potential, it is essential that we share the knowledge and insight we have gained. When I judge talent shows, I get the ability to provide young vocalists with helpful critiques and advice.
Collins, a native of Detroit, lists Roberta Flack, Luther Vandross, and Ralph MacDonald as teachers and musical influences, going from Sam Cooke and Nat King Cole to Placido Domingo and Michael McDonald.
Collins has appeared on “The Today Show,” “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” “Good Morning, America,” and The Grammy Awards in addition to his performance on “SNL” last week.
We should all consider ourselves to be learners, according to the vocalist, who has been providing private lessons for the past 30 years. Learning is a continuous, ongoing process.
During the event on Sunday at the Norwalk Public Library, Bill Heller plays the piano and Curtis Torian the drums. The music will start at 3 p.m. in the Main Auditorium. The Norwalk Public Library is located at 1 Belden Avenue in Norwalk. The presentation is free, and there is no registration charge.
