Our 3rd annual benefit concert was held on November 7th, 2015 at Café Istanbul in the Healing Center. It was an electrifying evening with performances by a fabulous line-up of all women, all New Orleans’ most talented musicians, poets, and artists making way for "RESPECT: A Musical Tribute to Aretha Franklin."  We raised over $21,000 to support our SISTA Scholars!  Click here to see photos from our tribute to Maya Angelou!

The evening celebrated the collective talent of New Orleans’ women and girls while paying homage to the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, whose music became the soundtrack for the Civil Rights and the Women's movements in the 1960's with her song, Respect, the rally call for turbulent times.
