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!

The change of venue didn’t deter the crowds at the first Sundae Sermon of the 2013 season…in fact there were more good people grooving to good music than ever.

On a gorgeous sunny Sunday, St Nicholas Park resounded with pumping dance beats spun by legendary dj’s Louie Vega, Kevin Hedge and, of course, Stormin’ Norman himself.  Folks swaying, kids playing, everyone meeting and greeting–Sundae Sermon is truly a Harlem classic. See you at the next one!

Eli Lehrer, VP of Development and Original Programming for Bravo says: “Bravo viewers have loved watching Derek J and Miss Lawrence tell it like it is for years on our air, so when we saw the opportunity to pair them with Bevy Smith, whose fashion point of view we’ve always admired, we jumped at the opportunity.”

We love Derek and Lawrence because they don’t hold back and we can’t wait to see them dish with Bevy Smith!
