Nominated for the prestigious Reel award, Global's hit TV show, Canada Sings, starring SharRon Matthews, began airing its second season on May 15th. Following her sell-out 2011 Fringe show, a West End run, world tour and television series, what is a Superstar to do?
Well, if she is SharRon Matthews Superstar, she slaps on a tight, smokin' hot gold outfit, some high heel pumps and then proceeds to sing the HOLY HELL out of some of her biggest hits while touring the world! GOLD hits, people...like....
• Radiohead: Here she comes to belt the crap out of you.
• Lady Gaga: Beware, bitches.
• Queen: Yes, she will do that song that you requested ALL last year.
• Guns and Roses: Isn't the band TITLE ENOUGH!?!?
Currently starring in Global TV's smash hit Canada Sings, Matthews, who has been likened to a young Bette Midler will be accompanied by her pianist Chris Tsujiuchi in NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK Sept 23rd - 25th at the Flute Bar and Lounge.

And this isn't just an excuse to do a crappy "Best Hits" show, oh no. (Though, again, she will be doing those "Best Hits", oh yes.) Sharron has got something to say – about: (ready for it...) that skanky Kim Kardashian (How in the hell does that happen?), Hookers and Prostitutes (They are probably the same thing but she wants to cover all the bases), hotels that scare the crap out of you (and not just because of the freakin' bed bugs), what it is like being a Canadian Reality TV Star (uber-sigh...), students who wear tight tshirts in front of their hot teachers (Ya, I said it) and many more interesting, naughty and intoxicating things...She will, yes, she will, sing some hot new songs with hot new arrangements, and will Adele be there? NO!!! Doesn't that Adele lady have enough exposure? But there might be some Jessie J, mixed with old school Justin Timberlake...just maybe...you will have to come and see. She will make you laugh, make you cry...and make you pee your pants a bit....GOLD!
"SharRon Matthews Superstar: Gold" kicks off a world tour in Toronto, then the Edinburgh Fringe, London, and New York City. In October, she makes first visit to South Africa to perform in the inaugural Cape Town Cabaret Festival.
Matthews was named Scotsman's BEST OF THE FEST for Jesus Thinks I'm Funny In 2011 and named No. 1 Cabaret in New York City in 2010 by Andrew Martin, Nite Life Exchange and WPAT Radio for 'SharRon Matthews Superstar: World Domination Tour 2010'. With a clutch of leading roles under her belt such as Lottie in Showboat, Madame Thernardier in Les Miserables, the Narrator in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, and Maisie in Seussical. Playing alongside Tina Fey in Mean Girls, Sharron is comedy gold on the silver screen.
