Bravo to the Community Folk Art Center (CFAC) for breathing some life into Third Thursdays and spicing up things along the Connective Corridor (Midtown section) during their Journey Through Music of the African Diaspora series. The most recent installment of the Journey, which was called a salute to Women in Music, featured local divas Erika Lovette and Tamar Smithers. These sophisticated ladies belted out sweet soul music (from original compositions to spirituals to Lena Horne to Beyonce and Mary J) and worked the capacity crowd like it was the Essence Music Festival.

To the delight of a capacity crowd of students and members of the community, Brian Freeland, aka World Be Free, performed the SU theme song last night during a benefit concert that also included Cassidy and Fabolous at Goldstein Auditorium.
For one song Be Free shared the stage with soulful singer Erika Lovette. He also got a rousing response during a song called “Dear Music.”
Fans, fellow artists, friends and family packed Sophistications Cafe in downtown Syracuse last night for singer Erika Lovette’s album release party. Her album is titled Love, Life and Everything In Between.
You can see Lovette performing one of the songs from her album at a previous Art & Soul Cafe here.
During last night’s gathering, she described the genesis for songs and various collaborations. She also mentioned that one of the songs was produced by Leonard Stephens, Jr. (who passed away last year).
