Gullah Daughters Flying On the Wings of the Sea Island Songbird

Travel through the deep southern-soul richness of South Carolina’s own, Mahoganee, as she presents “The Mahoganee Experience.” For one night only as a kick-off to the 2017 Spoleto Festival, the benefit will occur at the Art Institute of Charleston on Friday, May 26, 2017 from 6-9pm.  

Mahoganee’s vocals are tender yet powerful, and her musical stylings incorporate the spirit of strength.   She is a fierce original artist with the ability to passionately interpret the greats, from Nina Simone to Natalie Cole. A talented trustee of the art for past, present and future generations. Mahoganee’s live performances can take you on a global journey through space and time, all the while keeping you intimately connected to your own understanding of the pure joy and pain that is music.

This special event will benefit the Gullah Daughters of Purpose; a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in Beaufort, SC that focuses on empowering young teenage girls. The goal is to raise funds to help provide education, and to develop skills that will help them develop and nurture their gifts. There is also an emphasis on building lasting relationships in family, friendship and in the community.

In an effort to highlight healthy relationships, there will be a Marriage & Music Salon with the team “Ms. Mahoganee and Mr. Andre” who have been creative partners for the past 16 years. They have created three albums, several singles, collaborative projects and are currently working on a fourth album.

As you enjoy the smooths sounds of this melodic maven, Mahoganee; you will be surrounded by exquisite, thought-provoking art pieces, created by the talented students at The Art Institute of Charleston.  The event caters to art lovers of all types and ages, with music and original creations that will stimulate your mind. Come out to this free event on Friday and support Mahoganee and her project, Gullah Daughters of Purpose. We will see you there!
