Sing Sistah Sing! is the first work conceived by internationally renowned Mezzo Soprano Andrea Baker, she is joined by the wonderful pianist Richard Lewis. The show is a celebration of the extraordinary breadth of the African American female voice. Some of the women celebrated include; Leontyne Price, Marian Anderson, Donna Summer, Nina Simone and the great Billie Holiday. Sing Sistah Sing! is a joyous mixture of storytelling, jazz, blues, opera, art song, gospel and rollicking piano virtuosity. An event not to be missed!
“Andrea Baker danced into the First African Baptist sanctuary, barefoot, sinuously rhythmic, feet stomping, hands clapping, the richness of her mezzo-soprano seemingly drawn up from the earth itself.”
