Most fans know Chase Masterson from her role as Leeta on "Star Trek: Deep Space 9" and her numerous movie appearances, but some fans may be surprised to learn that she can sing, and sing beautifully.
Well this next weekend people will be able to discover Chase's magnificent vocal talents for free.
On Staturday July 18th, Chase will be performing live as part of KIIS FM's (Los Angeles) Summer Block Party at the Univeral CityWalk (at Universal Studios, Hollywood). The event starts at 8:00 pm and admission is FREE. That's right gratis.
I have had a chance to personally talk to Chase about her music on two separate occasions. Here are some excerpts from those interviews where she talks about her vocal career:
"I sing the music I love, which are the classic songs of the Golden Era (30s, 40s, 50s). I always loved this music, even when I was a kid, it was all I wanted to listen to."
"This is the music I've always loved ever since I was a little girl. I guess I was about thirteen when I got interested in music of the golden era. It's just really romantic. It's reminiscent of a lovely period of time. I love the lyrics. I love the melodies and they have always been my favorite."
"I was a dancer and a singer in musicals while I was growing up and did a lot of theater. In my early twenties I studied Shakespeare professionally. I am thankful to have a diverse background. I think it helps.(with acting and performing)"
