Join us on Sat, July 30 for our 2022 BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Film Night. We’ll be screening the movie Fame with an opening performance by Sing Harlem.

This 1980 cult-classic musical follows a diverse group of teens as they navigate the challenges and triumphs of life at the prestigious New York High School of Performing Arts. At once gritty, heartbreaking, and joyful, Fame remains one of the most authentically New York films ever made. The acclaimed youth gospel group Sing Harlem sets the tone.

*Please Note: Chairs will be available at this show, but you are also permitted to bring your own. For our d/Deaf and hard of hearing communities, we will have an ASL interpreter at the left side of the stage during the opening set only.

 

 

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Sing Harlem! the award-winning musical group was formed to be the breakout choir for Mama Foundation for the Arts’ School of Gospel, Jazz, and R&B Arts. Under the direction of Ahmaya Knoelle Higginson, 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. All proceeds from Sing Harlem! events and performances benefit the Mama Foundation for the Arts’ music training programs, which are provided to the Harlem community tuition-free.

Please note: RSVPs are encouraged but not required. Entry is first come first served, but RSVPs help you stay up-to-date on show information. See you at #CelebrateBrooklyn!
