Natural Woman by Elissa Carmona

About this event

Vocalist Elissa Carmona will collaborate with Morrisania Band Project (MBP) for a virtual performance of "Natural Woman", a 90-minute musical tribute to the life and music of Aretha Franklin. Goals are to honor the musical impact of a legendary performer, explore the artistic activism of Franklin’s signature songs, and strengthen the Bronx’s art culture. The performance will examine Franklin’s commitment to civil rights and the relevance of her music in today’s society.

Since 2016, MBP performances have produced a large following in NYC and particularly the Bronx. After March 2020, most live performances were cancelled, and they transitioned to virtual concerts in June 2020. Interviews with thisistheBronx.info and OnestTV Network greatly boosted attendance at the virtual concerts, and MBP gained new supporters within NYC (including the Bronx), Connecticut, Puerto Rico, and the UK.
