Sundae Sermon This Sunday St. Nicholas Park

sundae sermon

Sundae Sermon is back this Sunday in Harlem!

Hosted by Bevy Smith (Bravo Fashion Queens).

Featuring a special performance by the cast of Mighty Real showcasing the life of dance music’s one and only Sylvester.  And of course music by our favorite DJ Stormin’ Norman and his friends.

For those of you not familiar with Sylvester, know this.  On September 20, 2004, Sylvester’s anthem record, “You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real),” was inducted into the Dance Music Hall of Fame. A year later, on September 19, 2005, Sylvester himself was inducted into the Dance Music Hall of Fame for his achievement as an artist.  An activist who campaigned against the spread of HIV/AIDS, Sylvester died from complications arising from the virus in 1988.  HOWEVER – his trailblazing style and his love of life and music lives on in events like Sundae Sermon.  Which is one of the many reasons why Sundae Sermon matters.

We hope the community’s love for this event  – recently featured in a leading NYC publication thanks to Michael Feeney,  helped in some small way to tip the scales in the event’s favor.

AMEN!
