Like It Was
This stimulating collection of songs takes cabaret superstar Karen Akers in a brand new direction - into the wonderfully familiar world of The Great American Songbook!
Like It Was is filled with standards from Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Richard Rodgers and Hoagy Carmichael, which are rejuvenated by fresh new arrangements and expressive vocals displaying Ms. Akers' passion for revisiting this classic repertoire. Like It Was is sexy, gorgeous and fun - the essence of great Cabaret.
