We hope you're looking forward to Chicago's Red Dress Party on April 21. Don't worry, you still have time to buy your dress (or suit), but now you may want to take it up a notch and get a little more rock 'n' roll. Beverly McClellan from NBC's The Voice has just been confirmed to perform at the event that will be held the Joffrey Ballet Studios. The Voice introduced Beverly to the world as a singer of stunning power and range, comparable to Etta James, Janis Joplin and Melissa Etheridge. Beverly joins the roster of talent at Red Dress Party crew in good company with GMA's Ginger Zee and Chicago's own Miss Foozie. [Racked Wire]
