Popular New Zealand singer Sarah Frances Johnston will perform for a limited engagement at Oscar’s steakhouse inside the iconic dome of the Plaza Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
Johnston debuted at Oscar’s on April 14, and is a perfect fit for the nostalgic steakhouse as she performs the best classic and contemporary standards in a sizzling jazzy chanteuse style. The beautiful New Zealand songstress is the first singer to be signed as a resident performer at Oscar’s.
During Johnston’s recent performance of “Hizzhonor,” former Las Vegas Mayor and restaurant namesake, Oscar Goodman himself took the microphone and stated, “We’re so lucky to have this angel sing for us. She is going to be great and this is just the start of an amazing career.”
Goodman then joked, “Anybody who doesn’t love the way this girl sings, I’m gonna have ’em whacked.”
Johnston began her entertainment career as a child actor on the long running New Zealand soap opera “Shortland Street.” She also starred in the series “Tomorrow’s Another Day” which premiered across Europe. She also modeled for commercials and print advertisements for Coca Cola, Toyota, and Digicel in the South Pacific.
Johnston began her singing career in the picturesque bayside city of Tauranga on the North Island of New Zealand. She opened for the legendary soul and funk band Ardijah on the island of Samoa and also performed for famed New Zealand Tenor, Sir Howard Morrison.
Johnston moved to the U.S. in 2010. Since arriving, she has performed at highly regarded, Five Diamond venues in Nevada and California, including the Lodge at Pebble Beach, the Eiffel Tower Restaurant in Las Vegas, and the Ritz Carlton and Loews Hotels. She is also currently in talks with several record labels.
Johnston will perform every Saturday night in the month of May at Oscar’s from 8 to 11 p.m.
