The Foundation, established by the writer/producer of ‘Mama, I Want to Sing’, is recognized as a highly respected and powerful source of education and self-development for young people as highlighted in CBS 60 Minutes’ Emmy-winning broadcast.

‘Mama, I Want to Sing’ tells the story of a gifted young girl who, despite her mother’s strong objections, dreams of quitting her church choir to seek a career in popular music.

Creator Vy Higginsen based her musical on the biography of her sister Doris Troy, whose 1963 single ‘Just One Look’ rocketed her to international stardom, as a tribute to the many African-American musicians with church choir roots who rose to fame in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s reports MEAWW
