Celebrate Happiness Reviews
If you’re a music lover you’ll want to take note of a great talent in San Francisco doing creative work. Cabaret vocalist Sandra McKnight has an act she calls Get Happy Now, which is centered around happiness. She sang at Society Cabaret, an organization that is churning out some great performances in the heart of San Francisco. An uninhibited celebration of Happiness, Love and Joy! Sandra brought her warmth, spirit and humor from Santa Fe, NM to perform her musical adventure of Broadway songs, Standards and Light-hearted Anecdotes. All things Cabaret, she chooses very sensitive and emotional ballads on love, joy, relationships, including with yourself, and happiness. As part of her act, she also does a sexy red-hot tribute to Sophie Tucker.

“Get Happy Now!” summons cabaret star Sandra McKnight–and her audience at San Francisco’s Society Cabaret doesn’t hesitate to get in the spirit. With a winning combination of standards (“Wonderful World,” “You’ve Got to Have Heart”) and more modern pieces (“You’ve Got a Friend,” “The Secret of Life”), McKnight seduces us into laughing, singing along, and generally….getting happy. It’s not only upbeat numbers such as “Get Happy” and “Accentuate the Positive”; there’s also a selection of love songs, like “Our Love Is Here to Stay,” “My Foolish Heart,” “Why Did I Choose You,” and Sophie Tucker torch songs. A smiling audience walked out into the San Francisco fog.
