Come and celebrate the joy of Easter in this special Easter Week concert!
Legendary radio personality, producer and writer Vy Higginsen brings her Sing Harlem Choir to The Sheen Center for a rousing, inspiring evening of gospel music. Sing Harlem Choir was formed out of the Gospel for Teens program founded in 2006 by Vy Higginsen to be the breakout choir for The Mama Foundation for the Arts school. Over the years under the direction of Ahmaya Knoelle Higginson and Elijah Ahmad Lewis, the choir has grown to be a highly respected and influential force in the New York gospel scene, producing not only great vocalists, but top notch global citizens.
At its core, Sing Harlem serves as both a social impact initiative for young people that have graduated from Mama Foundation’s music training program, and as a commercial choir delivering acclaimed entertainment nationwide.
Sing Harlem Choir has performed at The Congressional Black Caucus, The Stellar Awards, New York Fashion Week, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Lincoln Center, Concerts Across America and the Grammy Awards. They have performed with artists such as Ariana Grande, Chance the Rapper, Madonna, Pharrell, Cissy Houston, Shirley Caesar, Jessye Norman, Moby and more.
