ABOUT MS. AIMBAYE

Born in Patterson, NJ, Mzuri Moyo Aimbaye is an internationally acclaimed vocalist, actress, and multi-award-winning playwright of The Fannie Lou Hamer Story, One Woman Play in which she performs. Her talents combine the presence of a movie star with a booming vocal range and versatility of an opera singer. She has been enthusiastically received on cabaret and concert stages both nationally and internationally as a Jazz singer. Ms Aimbaye was cast as Lucy in the first African American film depicting a slave revolt, “SANKOFA", just re-released on Netflix. She was commissioned by the National Congress of Black Women to write a short play, song and perform for the historic installment of the Sojourner Truth Bust” in Constitution Hall. She was the only female vocalist chosen to perform “Still I Rise” before an audience of global leaders for the 10th year commemoration of 9/11 at the United Nations accompanied by the New York City Symphony.

 

Ms. Aimbaye is the co-founder of Healing Through the Sound of Music, Inc. (HTSM) an institutional legacy social impact non-profit 501c3 music and theater performing arts company commemorating the often marginalized, exploited, and forgotten Black Women as Matriarchs of Mankind.  HTSM’s The Fannie Lou Hamer Story is on its This Little Light of Mine, Voice Of The Empowered  (V.O.T.E.) National Tour. She channels Mrs. Hamer transfixing the audience on a riveting 90-minute journey of storytelling and video montage with twelve inspiring songs about Mrs. Hamer’s activism as the “Mother of Voter Registration” for Black people which aided in the passage of the Voters’ Rights Act of 1965.  A critic once wrote, “When Ms. Mzuri sings God smiles and angels flap their wings”.
