“For many of our students this was their first experience with opera – and what a first impression you made! The impact your performance, Opera…from a Sistah’s Point of View, had on our students cannot be summed up by words alone. Instead we hope the number of dropped jaws and astonished smiles, engaged questions and enthusiastic curiosity help to articulate the appreciation we all feel towards you.”
– Foundation Academy, Trenton, New Jersey
“Lyric is so grateful to have had the opportunity to present Angela to various communities throughout the city of Chicago. She immediately connected to each individual regardless of age or background and provided a musical platform to discuss the challenges and joys of life.”

“Thank you for taking part as a guest speaker for the Indiana Fashion Week Youth Design Challenge and the Making it in Fashion Industry conference. Your personality was electric and captured the audience. It brought a real-life view to dreamers in a creative way where they saw it was possible.”

“Thank you for inviting the Alexander II Magnet School students to hear Angela Brown perform. The children loved listening to her and described her singing as a lasso that was tossed out, a rope which wrapped around the audience, and then a tug that pulled them back in! They were absolutely mesmerized by Ms. Brown’s glorious singing and her witty, charming stage presence, and they were beaming all the way back to school.”
– Alexander II Magnet School, Macon, Georgia

"The show provided access to over 1,200 students who got the chance to experience an exuberant and engaging performance and curriculum. The shows, targeted toward the neighborhood schools in the Franklin and Roosevelt region, were captivating and wildly successful. Student were enraptured by Ms. Brown and her ability to transcend the customary boundaries of the European canon and demystify the commonly misunderstood elements of opera as an art form. One student in particular commented on some preconceived pessimism she carried with her leading up to the show, but perspectives turned once she was able to hear Ms. Brown break down the content. This particular student of color gave testimony to seeing herself in Ms. Brown, and found comfort seeking opportunities to create her own dynamic destiny -- breaking barriers along the way."
