Tribute to Dolly Parton

Karen Hester was born in Norfolk, VA. Her love for music started at an early age, and continued through her life evident in her family and friends. Almost her entire family has some sort of musical talent!


 When Karen performs, you can feel her love for music and appreciate the fact that her vocals are as soothing as the "Smoky Mountain Songbird" herself! Karen’s professional theatre experience includes performing at House of Blues, The Palace Theater, 2001 Entertainment Complex , Superstarz! Live! at Celebration Music Theater, Blue Ridge Dinner Theater, and Legends in Concert. She has performed for many business functions, church events, corporate parties, casinos, conventions and several charity events such as The American Red Cross, Relay for Life and The American Heart Association.
