Yes, Florida Roundup 2019 is humbled, honored and THRILLED to welcome both Coco Peru and Deborah Cox into our family to help celebrate our 35th anniversary in grand style. See you there!
The Florida Roundup is thrilled to announce this year’s Saturday Night entertainment as none other than Grammy Award nominated, multiplatinum recording artist, actress and BROADWAY SENSATION
With Broadway credits like AIDA, JEKYLL AND HYDE, starring roles that include Josephine Baker in the musical JOSEPHINE and her recent smash hit in the tour of the new musical THE BODYGUARD in the role made famous by Whitney Houston, March 23rd will be a night like no other!
From a stellar background singer to Celine Dion to an iconic LGBT favorite for two decades, winning a host of civil rights honors and accolades, Deborah Cox possesses one of the most powerful and versatile contemporary voices of our time. On her second CD, One Wish, came the double platinum “Nobody’s Supposed to be Here” – which led the record for the longest running number one R & B single. She continued to achieve an impressive list of #1 Billboard hit records, including thirteen #1 Songs on Billboard’s Hot Dance Club Play Chart.
You don’t want to miss the fellowship, recovery-based message of hope, spiritual connection, personal growth and OMG, the off-the-chain entertainment.
The AMAZING Deborah Cox will perform Sat 3/23/19 during the FRU Dance at 10pm after the Speaker Meeting
On Friday, March 22nd, the Florida Roundup will host the hilarious comedienne
Miss Coco Peru!!
She started as a downtown favorite in the cabaret world of New York after she wrote, produced, directed, and starred in her first show, Miss Coco Peru in My Goddamn Cabaret, and has since enjoyed an expansive career, ranging from intimate cabaret stages in New York and LA, to television sets in millions of living rooms. Most recently Miss Coco has expanded to her many one woman shows and guest spots on Will & Grace.
She is a veteran of numerous feature films (trick, To Wong Foo…, and the cult classic Girls Will Be Girls, and more), and television shows (Will and Grace (twice), How I Met Your Mother, Arrested Development, among numerous others), Coco has also become a viral sensation on social media platforms, including Instagram and You Tube.
Considered “the hostess with that something…extra,” Coco has received worldwide acclaim for her award-winning solo shows that she’s starred in, written, produced, and directed, as well as her remarkable series of tributes to great performers, Conversations with Coco, in which she conducted live career-retrospective interviews with such luminaries as Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Liza Minnelli, and the late Bea Arthur.
Coco’s long history of passionate activism, unflagging support of the LGBT community, and fierce dedication to AIDS related charities earned her the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Board of Director’s Award. We are honored to host and present such an accomplished talent to our clean and sober community.
