Cece Teneal Returns to Centenary Stage Company for 2023 Concert Series

HACKETTSTOWN, N.J. – Centenary Stage Company welcomes CeCe Teneal back to the Sitnik Stage with her new show, Divas of Soul Starring CeCe Teneal. CSC patrons may recognize Teneal from her performance at CSC’s 2021 Curtain Up! Gala which featured her show “Portrait of a Queen.” 

Starting out as a cover band artist, CeCe Teneal has performed all over the globe for vast audiences. Travelling to over 40 countries, Teneal has shared the stage with Buddy Guy, Joe Cocker, Johnny Lang, Betty Wright, Cameo, Robert Randolph & the Family Band and the legendary B.B. King. An award-winning songstress in her own right, Teneal has been nominated for four Independent Music Awards and claimed the title for 2011 Best Gospel Song (“I Heard You Prayin”) and 2011 Best R&B Album (“Train from Osteen”), as well as 2018 Best Soul/Funk/Fusion Song (“Danger”).  Other accolades include the 2008-2010 Orlando Best Live Band, the 2017 Orlando Music Trailblazer Award, and the honor of being chosen as the halftime headliner for the 2019 Citrus Bowl.

Whether through her songwriting or vocals she still carries the energy of a country girl at heart. Blues and soul are her roots, but she pulls influences from jazz and funk as well. Divas of Soul starring CeCe Teneal’s blend of sounds and melodies inspired by Aretha Franklin tell a story of culture and generational history.

All 2023 Concert Series performances will take place in the Sitnik Theatre of the Lackland Performing Arts Center on the campus of Centenary University at 715 Grand Avenue, Hackettstown. Divas of Soul starring Cece Teneal will take place on March 18 at 8 p.m. Ticket prices are $30 for all seats with an increase of $5 the day of the event.
