Joe Coleman is a consummate entertainment professional, renown as a “double, triple threat.” He is an accomplished singer, actor and performer. Joe’s “double, triple threat” comes from his acclaim as a theatrical composer, songwriter, and astute businessman. Joe was a member of “The Platters” for 23 years and was a regular at the Sahara Hotel in Las Vegas performing popular songs such as “Only You”, “My Prayer”, “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes”, “The Great Pretender” and many more Number One hits. Joe has also performed with the renowned Barbra Streisand on her Finale Tour, Ben E. King, The Temptations, Smokey Robinson, Natalie Cole, B.B. King, Lou Rawls and many more.
Mere words cannot express how proud Joe was to have, recently, been selected as the Featured Vocalist for a Tribute Awards Gala for television icon and philanthropist, Oprah Winfrey, which was held in Washington, DC. Joe, also, feels blessed to have been tapped to perform for such luminaries as Maya Angelou, Quincy Jones, Nancy Wilson and the wonderful, cinema icon, Sidney Poitier.
