Performance art is sacred for me. I feel humbled and honored whenever I am given the opportunity to share my God-given gifts and talents with an audience. I am especially honored to be working with stellar artists such as bassist Warren Oree, and technical director JoAnna Turner, along with a crew of extremely talented individuals. As “Little Girl Blue” quickly approaches, I am prayerful that it will be a blessing to all those who are able to experience this raw, searing tale of a Black woman’s odyssey. Themes of sexual abuse, domestic violence, female sexuality and self-esteem are explored; however there are lighthearted, humorous moments as well. Through the voices of 17 characters, who perform poetry and monologues, “Little Girl Blue” reveals decades of pain, pathos and desperation endured until she reconciles her past and emerges as a mature woman, victorious and magnificently transformed. Stay tuned. More to come! Asante Sana.
