Oh When The Saints
Rhythm of Blue Productions presents a staged reading of a provocative new play, Oh When The Saints,
written by Adrian A. Babatunde Thomas.
One of the most intriguing of literary works today, this play challenges our beliefs about morality, homosexuality, and that thing we hold dearest to our hearts, family.
It's a two-act drama centering around the Wright family. James Wright is in the fight of his life to save his home, marriage, and the church he loves, but is fighting everyone whom he should be protecting.

VOCAL WORKSHOP w/ Kim Yarbrough
Kim Yarbrough-- a voice as sultry and haunting as a Southern Summer. One of the worlds’ most gifted vocalists . . . Since her Phenomenal Splash on Season 2 of NBC's "THE VOICE", the world knows just how gifted. After her appearance on "The Voice" she was interviewed on the "TODAY" Show with Kathie Lee Gifford, Hoda and Al Roker. That same evening, she dropped in to sing with "The Roots" on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon".
Classically trained, Kim sings in every style, from Broadway to Blues, Rock to R&B, Jazz to Jingles and everything in between. Her vocal prowess has been compared to the likes of Aretha Franklin. Her latest comparison is "Jennifer Hudson meets Chaka Khan". She dominates every element— stage, film, recordings. Actress Sheryl Lee Ralph has dubbed her “Little Aretha”, The late "Teena Marie" labeled her voice as "The Truth", and legendary singer/actress, Della Reese is quoted as saying, “You owe it to yourself to see Kim Yarbrough.” Maroon 5 front Man Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera have consistently pronounced Kim as a versatile powerhouse vocalist and "A force to be reckoned with."
