Live from Harlem – JFA Presents: Kym Lawrence

Harlem-born chanteuse Kym Lawrence is a master storyteller with a soulful taste in song. Her unique sound turned her into a professional vocalist at the age of 15, and she has now been an internationally performing vocalist well over 35 years. Ms. Lawrence has appeared on Broadway as a pit singer for “The Wiz,” among other great shows, and has performed with many jazz and rhythm and blues icons, among them Lionel Hampton, Danny Mixon, Bobby Watson, Nina Simone, Patience Higgins and Reuben Wilson.

This event will stream on the Jazz Foundation and Jazz Museum Facebook pages and the Museum YouTube Channel.

This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and by the Howard Gilman Foundation.
