When “Soul Brother Number One” James Brown released “Say It Loud - I’m Black and  I’m Proud” in the summer of 1968, it became the theme song for an entire movement.  The song and its message were so strong, it sent waves through black American culture.  Not surprisingly, many other soul and R&B artists took notice and were coming up with  their own black pride songs. This concert celebrates not only James Brown, but also the  Black Pride music he inspired among other African-American artists starting in the summer of 1968, including The Temptations, Sly and the Family Stone and more.

Billie Holiday and Edith Piaf, two women born in the same year on different shores, speaking different languages, led parallel lives in many ways, yet never met. They died 4 years apart in the cities they loved. Parallel Lives, curated by Nona Hendryx and an international roster of contemporary vocalists, is a global celebration to ‘Lady Day’ and the ‘Little Sparrow.’
 
Revolutionary art-rock, new-wave goddess Nona Hendryx is a celebrated vocalist, record producer, songwriter, musician and author. Tackling social issues, love and politics, Hendryx’s legendary career spans six decades of sound and style evolution. Longtime Nona Hendryx fans know her as one of the founding members of the ‘girl group’, Patti LaBelle & the Bluebelles in which their tight harmonies (spiced with Patti’s soaring gospel tinged lead vocals) served up a mixed platter of modern hits, beautiful standards, and soulful covers of songs such as Over the Rainbow. From here, Patti, Sarah and Nona morphed into the groundbreaking group Labelle, delivering a No.1 worldwide hit with ‘Lady Marmalade’ (Voulez Vous Coucher Avec Moi C’est Soir?)” Setting the world on fire with their theatrical performances and their costumes from feathers to silver and back this was where songwriter, Hendryx, came into her own. Writing for Patti’s amazing voice and the group’s unique sound, Hendryx’s songs—Can I Speak to You Before You Go to Hollywood, I Believe I Finally Made It Home, Space Children, You Turn Me On—rapidly became ‘the voice of Labelle. As a solo artist, Hendryx, has recorded and collaborated with an impressive line up of collaborators from all genres of music Rap, Hip Hop, Rock, Funk, Spoken Word and Jazz. (From Prince, Peter Gabriel, Talking Heads, Laurie Anderson, Living Color, Afrika Bambaataa to George Clinton and P-Funk, resulting in several top ten hits and a Grammy nomination (“Rock This House”, from her album The Heat, with Keith Richards— Rolling Stones—on guitar). In her 2012 album Mutatis Mutandis (Latin for changing those things which need to be changed), Hendryx lends the necessary gravitas to a striking rendition of Billie Holiday’s Strange Fruit with a smoky vocal tessitura somewhere between funk and the end of the stratosphere.
