20200115 Leslie BlasingLeslie Blasing has been singing for over 30 years and has grown into a sensation of her own – and very rightfully earned. She sings with a heart of gold, putting her voice and talent in everything she sings.

You can always find Leslie swaying and dancing as she sings, walking through the crowd and trying to get audience members to sing with her. She stays active in feeding off the audience, performing requests, and loving the oldies – but goodies.

Originally starting her singing career in San Antonio, Leslie transferred to South Padre Island in 1994, first singing at hotels. During her career in the Valley, she was a regular at Schlitterbahn’s Shrimp Haus Restaurant for 10 years. Now she can be found singing at the Island’s main hotspots year-round at places like Louie’s Backyard, Boomerang Billy’s Beach Bar & Grill, the Whiskey Room (in Daddy’s Cajun Seafood Restaurant), The Coral Reef and Isla Grand Beach Resort.

During the Winter season, she can be found all over the Valley at RV resorts for dances and show. She also has her own themed productions at various events and centers throughout the Valley.

Past themed productions have included, Women of Country Music, East Coast to West Coast, The History of Rock and Roll, WWII and 1940s Era Music and The Hits of the 60’s and 70’s. Newer shows include The Sounds of Motown and The Vietnam War Era Music. All her shows have been well received by Winter Texans and parks throughout the Valley.

Leslie has also won several Valley Star Awards. She was voted Female Vocalist of the Year from 2013 through 2017; Entertainer of the Year from 2014-2016. In 2018, the Valley Star Awards awarded her The Lifetime Achievement Award for Female Vocalist. These awards are presented by the Winter Texan Times and artists are voted on by the Winter Texans that read the paper.

This past week, Leslie performed in Alice as a fundraiser for the city’s local Habitat for Humanity. While she is entertaining throughout the Valley, and regularly at her hotspots on the Island, she has several huge productions coming up.
