About this event

The YWCA Greater Memphis welcomes you to a night of music, comedy, and inspiration you won’t forget! The Night of Empowerment is a fundraiser to support our 78-bed domestic violence shelter, the largest all-inclusive shelter in TN for victims of violence. This event is a thank you for your continued support of the YWCA and we hope will act as reminder of everything we have overcome over the last two years. We are all surviving and thriving!

The Night of Empowerment will kick off with music and comedy from two of our special guests, Psalmist Carla Tolbert Taylor and Comedian Mzzz Kecia. The main event will be Evangelist LaTrice Ryan and you will not want to miss her words of wisdom and inspiration.

Psalmist Carla Tolbert Taylor is a Memphis native with a smooth yet powerful voice. Anointed and gifted. Submitted to the call. Those are just a few ways one would describe the singing ministry of this vocal powerhouse. You may know her best as the lead vocalist of the rousing, praise and worship anthem "Everybody Praise," as performed by Grammy, Stellar and Dove nominated artists, the Temple of Deliverance Women's Choir. She had the distinct honor of being the overall winner of the Allstate Gospel Superfest Opening Act Search, an opportunity that allowed her to share her amazing gift of song on a nationally recognized platform.

Comedian Mzzz Kecia was a finalist for Nick at Night’s Funniest Mom, The Memphis Soul Classic’s 103.5 Comedy Search Contest and the Rhythm of Gospel Awards. Kecia was named the 2014 Tri-State Defender’s Best in Black Award comedy winner and the 2018 Memphis Urban Laughs Best Veteran Comic. She also received the MIC (Memphis Iconic Comedian) award in 2020. One of her greatest accomplishments was being chosen to appear on B.E.T.’s --A TIME TO LAUGH hosted by Vickie Winans. Mzzz Kecia has worked with national recording artists and nationally known comics as well. She has co- starred in hit stage plays such as THIRST, SECRETS, Brown Baptist's -A SOULFUL CHRISTMAS and the 2 time award winning stage play -THE ROYAL FAMILY. Mzzz Kecia was a headliner at The Hard Rock Cafe's LAUGHING AT THE ROCK and has made guest appearances at Chuckles Comedy House in Memphis, TN.

Keynote Speaker Evangelist LaTrice Ryan is an author, community leader, and evangelist known by many for her passion and fiery deliverance of the word of God. She is a powerhouse in the pulpit, and in her community encouraging people to discover the potential within. Recognizing the need for access to quality resources she launched LaTrice Ryan Ministries to equip individuals with the life skills they need to thrive in their everyday endeavors.
