April 30 will be celebrated as the International Jazz Day. International Jazz Day celebrates the historical, cultural, and educational contribution of this popular genre of music. The day aims to spread international awareness about this unique musical style; and to promote the cultural, and social values that Jazz stands for.

Jazz is a uniquely American musical style that is deeply rooted in the rich musical, and cultural traditions of Africa, and is heavily influenced by European music.

The Haitian American Chamber of Commerce of Broward and Palm Beach counties would like to invite you to celebrate this day and be part of the prelude to the chamber’s 4th Year Anniversary and Haitian Heritage month celebrations.

We would love for you to come and celebrate with us our fourth year

KCC Productions presents Jazz at MOCA featuring Vivian Sessoms

“A Powerhouse” (Quincy Jones)

Vivacious, vibrant, vigorous – all adjectives that describe the voice and performance of Vivian Sessoms. On Friday, April 24, you can experience this for yourself between 8 and 9:30 PM at North Miami’s Museum of Contemporary Art (“MOCA”) in a free performance of her special take on jazz and soul. Vivian, born and raised in Harlem, New York, was born with a love of music instilled in her as the daughter of two prominent musicians and niece of Nacy Wilson. Her mother was a former jingle and session singer, her father, a well-known flautist and percussionist who worked with James Brown and several other well-known musicians throughout his career.

Vivian began classically training her voice at the age of nine, and it wasn’t long before she was so well versed in her craft that she won a scholarship to the highly acclaimed Amas | Eubie Blake Repertory Company headed by the late Rosetta Lenoire. This was where she began training in theatre, dance and music, which eventually led her to a successful run in radio and television voiceovers. In fact, you’ve probably heard her, she was the soothing sound of a soprano in commercials that convinced you to purchase such products as Campbells Soup, Coke, Hershey’s and many more.

As a performer, Vivian has sung with many of the worlds most recognized artists: Stevie Wonder, Chris Botti, Cher, Christina Aguilera, Diddy, P!nk, Chaka Khan, Ke$ha, Rob Thomas, Patti Labelle, Patti Austin, Sinead O’Connor and numerous others. As a writer, Vivian has worked with just as many artists, including Ryuichi Sakamoto, Towa Tei, Lalah Hathaway, Amel Larrieux, Junior Vazquez and David Morales.

In 2007, Vivian and partner Chris Parks released their debut CD entitled “Sunny One Day,” to critical acclaim. Billboard magazine referred to Vivian’s voice as “clear and exquisite”, Uptown magazine called her voice “powerful”, and Urban Network magazine called Sunny One Day “an impressive debut so polished and effortless sounding, it’s as if it bonds to your DNA and defies you to stop playing it”.

Vivian is currently putting the finishing touches on a follow up cd, her first jazz effort, entitled “Heart,” due out this summer.

Backing Vivian will be a stellar trio of Martin Bejerano, piano, Eric England, bass & Rodolfo Zuniga, drums. MOCA is located at 770 NE 125th Street in North Miami. For more information visit mocanomi.org or call 305-893-6211.

On May 11th, 1981, Bob Marley transitioned from this earth to join the higher essence of divine placement. on Monday, May 11th, 2015, we celebrate the life of Bob Marley through some of the artists that will cover his most lyrically in-tuned music pertaining to love, peace, and harmony “4ManKind”.
