ST. LOUIS (KPLR) – A soprano singer has the highest vocal range of all voice types.
Theirs are the voices that dance among the stars. So it was fitting that this St. Louis spring had another daytime star sighting.
'I`m a little speechless,' says Christine Brewer, Soprano Star. 'It`s just amazing to see all these people who have been in my life for many years and been mentors, friends and nurturers. It`s just overwhelming.'
Wednesday morning in the 66-hundred block of Delmar, Christine Brewer became the latest to have her star honored in the St. Louis Walk of Fame.
Music mentors and performance peers gathered to honor the soprano singer.
'Yes, from the very beginning,' remembers Richard Gaddes, Former Director Opera Theatre St. Louis. 'I always thought that she had a very special quality of voice.'
After the ceremony she sang about two buses and a train while one metro whizzed on past down Delmar.
While her star rose in the 80`s and 90`s, brewer bounced around the globe singing for audiences everywhere.
But the entire time she retained her hometown roots living in Lebanon, Illinois.
'When my career started to take off I didn`t see the need to move to New York, I could move there when I need to,' says Brewer.
'When I`m there for a couple months I just rent an apartment. Or if I`m in London for a couple months, I just rent an apartment. But I always loved to come back to this part of the world because it`s my home. And St. Louis is my home and that`s why I`ve stayed.'
