If you’re having a candle lit dinner and really don’t feel like putting that same Barry Manilow record on, try replacing it with female vocalist Elaine Lachica. She is sure to set the mood with her entrancing soprano voice and surprisingly romantic background music. Don’t feel like cooking? At least ask your significant other to dance on Feb. 4 at Manhattan’s St. James Episcopal Church, tickets ranging between $10-$55 or on Feb. 11 at NYC‘s Pete’s Candy Store or even still on Feb. 13 at NYC’s Symphony Space. elainelachica.com.
