Benita Charles at The Donna Summer Musical on Broadway

On June 30th, I had the pleasure of seeing a great musical on Broadway, Summer: The Donna Summer story.  My love treated me for my birthday and it was worth every minute and every musical note.Everything was perfect from the singers, the story, the costumes, set and choreography! I enjoyed it so much that I plan to see it again.

 If you love the music of Donna Summer, you can't miss this show!

My love, Ed surprised me with tickets to see Summer! What a man!!!

Thank you so much to all my family, friends and fans for your kindness, your well wishes, texts, calls and gifts on my birthday on June 30, 2018! It's so incredible to have that much love. I am so grateful and blessed!!!

There's an energy in a Preachermann show that is indescribable if you're not in the room. You have to be there.The love that the band and the audience share is truly amazing!

A special thanks to the band for bringing their A game:

                    Thanks for supporting Make Music New York with the Benita Charles Trio - 6/21/18!

                    The Benita Charles Trio - June 2018

                    A special thanks to all who attended our show for Make Music New York at the Clayton Williams Community Garden in Harlem! It was a lovely day in the garden of original music and some of our favorite classic songs.  The audience enjoyed the show and we enjoyed bringing the magic to the audience.  There were passerbys who stopped and stayed for the entire concert.  Moving cars slowed to hear the music and out of sheer curiosity of what was happenning.

                    There was a gentleman named, Roland from Switzerland.  He came to my concert because he missed the annual concert in his country. My concert provided comfort for him and he stayed for the entire concert! That was so awesome!!! I love the power of music.

                    A special thanks to my dear and talented friend, Marci Geller who came from Long Island! It was such a pleasure to see her at the show!

                    A special thanks to Preachermann of Preachermann and the Revival for blessing us with his presence!  He is truly a powerhouse vocalist and we were happy to see him! For those of you who don't know, I sing background vocals in his music project. My stage name is "Motown Mama!" It's a dynamic show!

                    A very special thanks to my band, The Benita Charles Trio! Peter Archer (guitar) and Cheo Rodriguez (percussion) rocked the music with my vocals. It's a pleasure working with such talented musicians!

                    Thanks to all my fans and well wishers for your continuous support of my art! I appreciate you from the bottom of my heart!!!

                    Much love,
