HARLEM WEEK began in 1974 as HARLEM DAY, a day of encouragement and fellowship in Harlem for New Yorkers. Given the huge success of the celebration, more days were added to showcase the community’s rich economic, political and cultural history.

Celebrating its 41st year in 2015, HARLEM WEEK will offer over 100 events from July 26th through August 22nd to over 2 million attendees from all over New York and the world. HARLEM WEEK celebrates the neighborhoods assets and unique flavor, promoting Harlem’s rich African, African-American, Caribbean, Hispanic and European history, culture, arts, religion, entertainment and sports.

Mama, I Want To Sing

Mama, I Want To Sing

Mama, I Want To Sing

Mama, I Want to Sing illustrates the story of many great performers who learned their craft in the church choir. The Doris in Mama, I Want to Sing (fashioned after Vy’s own sister Doris Troy) stepped out the church choir, performed during Amateur Night at the Apollo, migrated to London where she performed and provided a gospel and soul underpinning for groups such as the Beatles.

We Are!

WeAre0098
WE ARE! Is based on an award-winning “60 Minutes” feature story that followed the students of Gospel for Teens, the acclaimed music program of The Mama Foundation for the Arts’ School of Gospel, Jazz and R&B Arts, for one year.

Alive!

Alive!_6
Alive! features singers and musicians over the age of 55. Some were performers back in the day, some sing in church, the shower, or in the car, but they all can sing! Alive! illustrates that talent gets better, deeper, and richer with age. You will have a great time reliving the turning points in your life, and you will feel rejuvenated when you leave the theater.
