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.
