Former First Lady Obama once said, “if there’s one thing I’ve learned in life, it’s the power of using your voice.”

Denyce Graves is an internationally acclaimed opera star, but she uses her voice in so many different ways beyond the stage. Now she’s taking the director’s seat for one of the world’s most celebrated operas. And guess what? She’s a home girl from D.C. This is absolutely powerful. It is a reminder that black and brown children need to see these representations more often. It matters. It’s important. Bravo, Ms. Graves! Please like and follow Ms. Graves and her incredible foundation .

This beautiful advertisement featuring a black woman celebrating the beauty of opera is the reason why artists like Denyce Graves , Angel Blue , Latonia Moore , J’Nai Bridges , Norm Lewis (P.S. Norm is honorary. Lol) and so many others are so vital to the American performing arts culture. There’s a belief that opera is for the elite. There’s a belief that Black Americans do not celebrate classical music. That is so far from the truth. But as Ms. Graves has shared on more than one occasion, that myth is perpetuated because “we’ve been fed a diet of one thing one way.” I salute LA Opera for this beautiful advertisement featuring a black woman celebrating an amazing art form. Thank you .angelabassett for lending your iconic voice. I would love to see a hodgepodge of music celebrated from jazz to classical to opera to R&B to soul to gospel. It’s all beautiful because it is a representation of heart. Black Americans are truly more than what has been shown through the media. There’s depth, beauty, life, and soul within the lives we lead. Repost from

For hundreds of years, opera has endured the unimaginable – from fires to floods to earthquakes – and a global pandemic proved no exception. Through it all, our song prevailed, ringing louder and stronger than before. ⁠

After a year and a half away from our theater, it’s time to sing our song together again. And we can’t wait to share that moment with you.⁠

Hear our storied journey, seen through the eyes of Opera’s Everywoman, as told by the incomparable .AngelaBassett.

🚨 The wait is over!! 👏🏾

It’s so ironic that on Juneteenth we’re celebrating the first portion of an interview with an icon. Denyce Graves has literally dedicated her life to supporting the cause through storytelling whether it be opera, theater, film, or television. Her attachment to Through the Fire is life changing. Never has an opera singer transitioned into feature film and the fact that it’s a black woman makes it special. She’s setting a major precedent for little black girls and boys to follow. Art is universal, and we salute you Denyce!

This film, this interview, this MOVEMENT is absolutely paramount! We really don’t even have the words y’all! Check out this interview to learn more about the project and Ms. Graves, who is an absolute light! 🤩

Laughing hysterically. I’m sitting in my bedroom at 1 AM, cracking up at the hypocrisy I’ve seen recently. I’m a black man, first and foremost. My love for black people is an extension of my origin. However, I’m seeing attacks on black women, and I'm not too fond of it. There’s a saying th...

Her humility matched with wit, graciousness, and kindness only exude her overall light.” CLICK ON THE LINK IN OUR BIO!!!!!!!!!!
