An Evening with Gladys Knight @ Kupferberg Center

November 9, 2017, Queens, NY – Seven-time Grammy winner Gladys Knight gave an unforgettable performance at the Kupferberg Center in Flushing Queens this past Thursday. This is the second time the singer performed at the venue. After such an outstanding performance the first time, it left many New York fans longing for her return.

Knight has been in the music and entertainment industry for seven decades, and at 73 years young the singer hasn’t missed a beat. The crowd was in amazement and awe as the “Empress of Soul” took the stage. Knight, looked amazing with her eye-catching outfit floating across the stage with such elegance and class; like a fine wine, the singer just gets better with age.  The “Empress of Soul” captivated the audience with her mesmerizing voice as she sang songs from her very extensive catalog of classics. In between tunes, Ms. Knight engaged the audience by telling funny stories about her life and band.

Our world Media was honored to be in attendance for this phenomenal performance. If you had the misfortune of missing this event, you can check out photos and clips from this event below. For a listing of upcoming concert dates, shows, and new music check out www.gladysknight.com.

Founded in 2017, SEQAA is a collective of artists and arts professionals who seek to cultivate and share artistic expression where they live and work. Its mission is to nurture local talent and support quality cultural programming in our community, particularly in public spaces. The (C)Art Festival is The Alliance’s first major initiative that invites interactive public experiences at a historical community space on the grounds of the Rufus King Manor Museum.

 

As Southeast Queens undergoes new developments and major changes, the (C)Art Festival will be a vehicle for SEQAA to introduce The Alliance to our neighbors and visitors as well as further its mission of building and expanding the current art community and its cultural offerings.

 

A number of cross-disciplinary projects will be available at the (C)Art Festival that are fun and engaging for people of all ages. They include:

 

  • Rejin Leys’ PulpMobile DIY paper-making project.
  • Shervone Neckles’ Creative Gathering Wellness Station, an herbal tea-making cart.
  • Jacqueline Herranz-Brooks and Margaret Rose Vendryes’ Consume a piece of Cuba before… / Consuma un trozo de Cuba antes que…, a community dialogue project about the changing relations between Cuba and the USA discussed while consuming cake.
  • Sherese Francis’ Expressions mobile library of Southeast Queens authors and writers will present a bookmaking workshop and the Black Cherry Jam Open Mic.
  • Natali S. Bravo-Barbee’s Fresh of the Press: The Green Card Cart, taking a small, portable Gocco silkscreen press and printing limited edition Green Card prints, to open dialogue about the current immigration crisis, deportations and family separations.
  • Art & Com’s (Thiago Szmrecsányi, Natalia De Campos, Tracy Collins and Toya Mileno) Collective Bargain, a mobile installation-performance-intervention that displays information, media and ephemera related to collectivity, action, gathering, healing, and the power of union.
  • Museum of Impact’s #UpstanderLoveLetters, an artful intervention where participants learn to ‘Stand Up. Speak Up. Act Up’ for what they believe in by engaging in a series of themed activities that amplify social justice.
  • Other participants include Queens Creative Solidarity, multimedia artist Elizabeth Velazquez, and other local creators and organizations.

 

The (C)Art Festival is made possible in part by the Queens Council on the Arts with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and through a partnership with King Manor Museum.
