ABOUT

Let the Music Play... Gospel!  is a musical celebration of a generation, a rousing story in concert featuring the Greatest Gospel Hits of all time with an intergenerational company of performers comprised of both younger and older adults.

 

Vy Higginsen  returns to the stage, recreating her role as the radio personality on her on stage radio station where the music comes alive, WVHW New York. The same station that brought you the american classic and longest running 

off-broadway theater musical the history of american theater "Mama, I Want To Sing"  and the popular sensation "Sing Harlem Sing".

 

After a long running hit engagement in 1988,

the joyous concert musical returns 30 years later,
