Gospel for Teens
Vy Higginsen, Host
Bring your families, friends and most importantly your voice. Come celebrate the music in you at Carnegie Hall's Community Sings!

This interactive event is your opportunity to sing, exchange stories, and share food together with the exhilarating Gospel for Teens, hosted by Harlem icon, Vy Higginsen. (No singing experience necessary!)
Based in Harlem, the Gospel for Teens choir was born out of Vy Higginsen's Mama Foundation for the Arts—dedicated to teaching aspiring teenagers about the importance of gospel music as an art form. Aged 13-19, these teens stand as a shining example of musical possibility, bringing the power of traditional and contemporary gospel to audiences all around New York through performances at the Apollo Theater, the American Museum of Natural History, and St. Paul Community Baptist Church.
"We mean to lift up the youth through history and gospel music!" —Vy Higginsen, Mama Foundation for the Arts CEO and Executive Director
