Music by Denver’s Own Brittany Williams!

The Rendezvous has been described as a “rock concert with jackets,” or “the anti-rubber chicken charity event.”  Real magic occurs when a mixed crowd of community activists, socialites and music lovers, gather for an upscale, but unpretentious evening of gourmet food, drinks, auction and outstanding music – all in support of resilient and powerful youth.

This year’s event features the music of Brittany Williams, a Denver local with a unique sound! Brittany is a soul/songwriter with jazz, R&B, and rock influences. If you took a chunk of Jill Scott, Christina Aguilera, and threw in a dash of Ella Fitzgerald and the Wilson sisters from Heart, with just the subtlest touch of Amy Winehouse – you’d get Brittany’s voice. Come check her out and support cityWILD at the same time!
