In 1983 it all started with the legendary musical
Mama I Want to Sing!
After the longest run in the history of American theater, we've listened to the future generation and this is: Mama Foundation for the Arts. We uplift Black musical treasures to heal and inspire through the power of collective music making.
That's right! Sing Harlem starred on the 17th season of America's Got Talent on Tuesday, July 19th at 8/7c!
America’s Got Talent, the world’s most successful variety show, hosted yours truly on July 19th for live auditions as Sing Harlem performs for award winning actress and global superstar Sofia Vergara, international fashion icon Heidi Klum, Got Talent creator Simon Cowell and AGT veteran/comedian Howie Mandel. Terry Crews also returns as host!
We couldn't be more proud of these kids for taking the stage and showing America how we do it here in Harlem on the most successful reality television format in history!

The Gospel for Teens program has grown to include all genres! Aptly renamed the Mama Music Matters program, the reimagining of Gospel for Teens will allow students to explore a variety of music all while gaining an appreciation for the influences of gospel, jazz, R&B, and more.

With your generosity, we are able to provide tuition-free programming and sustain ourselves as a Harlem legacy institution where an intergenerational and interracial community is promised to “Be Seen and Be Heard” in the fullness of their experience – their voices, their stories, and their hearts.
