“Mighty Real: A Fabulous Sylvester Musical “ written by Anthony Wayne tells the life story of the icon Sylvester through his music and his point of view. Beyond all the trials, tribulations, glitz and glamour of his lifestyle he was a symbol for being fabulous. But he was also a symbol for being who he was…and unapologetically so. The words and music of this show will enter your ear, soar through your heart and inspire your soul.
Producing partners Anthony Ken LLC and Sheryl Lee Ralph along with her D.I.V.A. Foundation are teaming up to bring the production to the stage.
The D.I.V.A. Foundation (Divinely Inspired Victoriously AIDS Aware) is a national not-for-profit 501C (3) charitable organization founded by Sheryl Lee Ralph in 1990 as a memorial to the many friends she lost to AIDS as an original company member of “Dreamgirls.” The organization focuses on generating resources and coordinating artistic activities to create awareness of and combat HIV/AIDS. The D.I.V.A. Foundation utilizes music and entertainment as a vehicle to inform, educate and erase the stigma attached to this deadly disease.
Says Lee Ralph,
“As we acknowledge National AIDS Awareness Day, I know Sylvester is singing and dancing under that great disco ball in heaven and we prepare to light up Broadway with his music and memory.” Said Ralph
