Alyson Williams and Nat Adderly, Jr. pay tribute to singer, songwriter, and actress Phyllis Hyman on the 25th anniversary of her death. Hyman’s early jazz-inflected sound and powerful urban contemporary ballads made her a regular in New York nightclubs. Harlem native Alyson Williams is the first female vocalist signed to Def Jam’s label and is internationally renowned as a multi-genre recording artist deeply rooted in Jazz, Hip-Hop, and R & B. Grammy-nominated Nat Adderly, Jr. is best known for his work with Luther Vandross, having written Vandross’s first top-20 hit “Stop to Love” among others.
This program is presented by The National Arts Club in partnership with Audelco, New Heritage and AWP.
