Kristen Hertzenberg: Still Singing After Thyroid Cancer

Kristen Hertzenberg sings as "Christine" in "Phantom: The Las Vegas Spectacular," and she's been singing opera and musicals most of her life.  She finally got around to making her first CD, when her doctor noticed her swollen throat.  And that's when Kristen got the shock of her life: she had thyroid cancer.  She needed surgery, and she might not sing again.  Kristen talks about her new album, "Holidays from the Heart," and what cancer taught her about faith and starting over. 
 
Kristen Hertzenberg performs with Travis Cloer and the Las Vegas Master Singers on Dec. 17 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. at UNLV's Ham Hall.

Kristen Hertzenberg, singer, "Phantom: The Las Vegas Spectacular" and "Holidays from the Heart"

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
