Profile

“Divas Live” and “All in One” are two very unique and original shows.
Without a doubt, whichever show Karen Grainger performs…you will know you
have seen a truly outstanding entertainer.

Karen Grainger grew up in Toronto, Canada surrounded by music. By the age of six, Karen made her television debut with an appearance on a youngster’s talent show singing “Delta Dawn,” accompanied by her dad’s guitar playing.

Never quite able to get the entertainment bug out of her system, she was involved in music theatre and community drama groups throughout her high school years.

After much coaxing from a friend who persuaded her to audition for a gig at Canada’s Wonderland, Karen was delighted to land a role in the Country Show. The next year she was back at it again in Concert ’87. That same year, Karen joined a Toronto based vocal quartet. As the opening act for a Legends of Rock and Roll Show, all members agreed that Karen should sing lead on Reba McEntire’s “Why Haven’t I Heard From You?” The rest, as they say, is history.

Karen has enjoyed a very successful impersonating career as not only Reba, but Celine Dion and Cher as well. Karen’s “Divas Live” one woman tribute show will leave you wanting more. Audiences are spellbound by Karen’s skill at recreating these diverse characters, capturing their voices as well as their mannerisms. Karen’s portrayals have been earning her standing ovations from Bally’s in Atlantic City to Canada’s premier Casino in Windsor and from Japan to a U.S. Naval base on the Indian Ocean.

It was time to sink her teeth into something more challenging. In 2002, Karen teamed up with Canadian comedy writer Larry Horowitz among others to create an amazing comic impression show called, “All In One!” Karen uses a variety of props to create a hilarious visual and vocal illusion. The audience will be treated to such musical “Guests” as…Tina Turner, Whitney Houston, Britney Spears, Alanis Morissette, Shania Twain and Barbra Streisand…not to mention the men…Aaron Neville, Joe Cocker, Michael Bolton, and Michael McDonald…to name a few!
