Los Angeles _It was announced recently by Carla Du Pree Clark Director of the hit Musical,”North On South Central”, Ms. Eloise Laws has joined the talented cast. The Houston born singer/songwriter is well-known for her gifted voice being heard on radio stations and concert halls around the world. But, in recent years,she’s also put her vocal skills to work on the Theater stage as well. while most will remember her chart toppers,You’re Incredible,Love Comes Easy, and Baby You Lied..she also excelled in her theatrical endeavors with a Tony Award Nomination for a musical she co-wrote and starred in “It’s Nothing But the Blues.”
Ms. Laws comes from a very talented family of singers and musicians, including iconic brothers, Hubert and Ronnie…with younger sister Debra, fully established in her own career.
Eloise is asking all of her fans in Los Angeles to come out and support this award-winning Musical, “North on South Central”.. It’s a Keeper!
Since 2007, Women in Jazz South Florida, Inc., has been a 501(c)(3) non-profit, educational organization that promotes women musicians, globally, through events, concerts, performances, clinics, lectures, workshops, articles, interviews, newsletters, courses, contacts, research, history, archives, websites, film, audio and video recording, and recognition.
We propose to have a SYMPOSIUM OF WOMEN IN THE ARTS at The White House, in 2015, while President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama are in office. The purpose of this symposium is to bring together a panel of women in art, music, literature, theater, and film to strategize on how to change the paradigm of women being marginalized in the Arts.
These are the facts:
• Women pay 53% of the taxes on the planet.
• Women contribute 93% of their income to their families, while men only contribute 43% to their families.
• Of 134 NEA Jazz Masters, since 1982, only 15 women (11%) received the $25,000 honorarium from OUR TAX DOLLARS!
Women benefit from between 1-5% of public funding. Only 5% of art in the Metropolitan Museum of Art belongs to women. publically funded bands like the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra that pays its members $100,000 have NO women in the ensemble. But women’s tax dollars pay for these bands to operate.
This must change. It will only change if we address this with our government officials and if we NOMINATE WOMEN for awards like this. If you are agree with this, please share this with ALL people you know.
