Linda live... Upcoming Dates and Events
Since arriving in Denver she’s had the opportunity to perform the National Anthem at the Pepsi Center for the Denver Nuggets, her one woman show “Rea’s Story at the Crossroads Theatre, the Shadow Theatre and various private and school events. She has worked with many wonderful local artists. Theus-Lee has also performed at various clubs, wedding receptions, fundraisers and numerous private events.
Theus-Lee was also part of the wonderful cast “Sistas and Storyteller’s” that landed them acclaim in Denver, as well as performing the piece in Maui Hawaii, which was created by Sheryl Renee and Coco Brown. She also portrayed Josephine Baker in "Live at The Rossonian" which was performed at the Crossroads Theatre and Jazz @ Jacks a piece also created by Sheryl Renee. Most recently Linda and her cast of musicians were the opening act for Kenny "BabyFace" Edmonds when he performed at the Grant Amphitheater in Clement Park in Littleton, Colorado 2011.
Theus-Lee's musical creativity lives in vocal Jazz, Blues, Musical Theatre and R&B. In addition she is also a very talented percussionist, and loves writing songs on her guitar. She loves family and friends and holds a Master of Social Science degree with emphasis in Education and Counseling from the University of Colorado Denver. Linda’s ongoing commitment is to empower students about how important they are, and about the importance of education in their lives!
Linda Theus-Lee's musical journey has been on a continuum since a very young age. A native of Los Angeles, California and born into a musical family her musical roots started early by studying dance and theatre, and by watching her older siblings create music with original ideas and creative expressions. Theus-Lee, first love was dancing, but then as time moved on she found herself with the love of singing. She says “I’ve always had an affinity to sing and create at a young age.” She feels that her passion and style is a gift from God that needs to be embraced, and celebrated.
In high school, Linda, and the choir director wrote an arrangement of the old spiritual “Nobody Knows the Trouble I’ve Seen” for the school’s 102 acapella choir. The director, John Arnold, entered their arrangement into a state wide completion that earned the choir accolades and entrance into the finals that was held in Hawaii, thou they didn’t win the final completion, this opportunity gave Linda the motivation and inspiration she needed to follow her heart’s desire to sing…sing...sing.
Theus-Lee has always been a writer of poetry which lead her to write her own one woman show first called “Show Case a Singer’s Story” she then changed the name in 2003 to “Rea’s Story.” She has performed this work in Los Angeles, California at the Prestigious Canon Theatre, the Steinway Recital Hall, as well as performing the show in Seoul Korea for 14 days.
Before arriving in Denver, almost 22 years ago, Theus-Lee performed with many wonderful local artists who were part of the L.A scene. As destiny would have it, she performed with such greats as Lionel Hampton and his Orchestra, Chester Whitmore Black Ballet Jazz, the Platters and the group Destination which was a disco sensation. By working in these multifaceted situations she was able to tour, which led her to places such as Canada, Europe, Japan, Korea, Las Vegas and San Francisco.
Whether performing solo, duo with her band or standing in front of a 20 piece orchestra Linda brings charm, passion, skill and a great desire to delight your audience.

Wins Thomas Jefferson Award
DENVER— Linda Theus-Lee, was honored as a recipient of the prestigious Thomas Jefferson award for her demonstration of a strong commitment to the advancement of higher education, a deeply seated sense of individual civic responsibility and a profound commitment to the welfare and rights of the individual.
Award winners are those who embody and advance the ideals of Jefferson, the third U.S. president and a Founding Father whose influence shaped American arts, sciences, education and public affairs. The Jefferson Award recognizes CU faculty, staff and students who demonstrate excellence in the performance of regular academic responsibilities while contributing outstanding service to the broader community.
The Thomas Jefferson Award was established at the University of Virginia in 1951 by the Robert Earll McConnell Foundation to honor teaching faculty who exemplified the humanistic ideals associated with Jefferson. By 1962, six other institutions – including CU – had established a Jefferson Award. In 1980, the university added a student category; in 1988, the staff category was approved. Funding for the awards is derived from earnings on an endowment provided by the McConnell Foundation and from a bequest by Harrison Blair, a CU alumnus.
