City College Center for the Arts Presents Emeline Michel's 'Black Pearls' Concert
(Published: November 08, 2019)

Music lovers will have the chance to hear the work of a titan of world music as City College Center for the Arts presents "Emeline Michel's Black Pearls," a special one-night-only concert on Friday, November 15. An acclaimed artist and an icon of Haitian music, Emeline Michel has brought the music of her homeland to stages across the world for more than two decades. The 7:30 p.m. concert will feature Michel and voices of the new generation of Haitian singers, Princess Eud and Riva Précil.

Praised by the New York Times as a "dancing ambassador with a voice serene and warm like the breeze," Michel has captivated audiences with her unique fusion of Haitian rhythms, pop, jazz and blues, amassing a long list of hit songs including "Flanm," "A.K.I.K.O," "La Chanson de Jocelyne," and "Pran Mem M (Take My Hand)."

The "Black Pearls" concert - its name a nod to the rare excellence of its performers as well as to Haiti's moniker as "the pearl of the Antilles" - will also feature the talent of the rising generation of Haitian performers: Eud, a talented rapper and singer known for hit songs such as "Hey" and "Eudomination," and Précil, a Haitian-American singer-songwriter celebrated for her mix of jazz and Haitian beats.

Tickets for "Emeline Michel's Black Pearls" are $40 general admission and $32 for students and seniors and are available for purchase online at www.citycollegecenterfort... or by calling the box office at (212) 650-6900.

Tickets can also be purchased in person at the Aaron Davis Hall box office Tuesday through Friday from noon to 6 p.m. Aaron Davis Hall is located on the campus of the City College of New York at West 135th Street and Convent Avenue (129 Convent Avenue).
