About The Show
Jack and Jill of America was founded in 1938 in Philadelphia, PA. Twenty mothers came together with the focus of providing educational, cultural and social opportunities to youth ages 2-19. Since 1938 that dedication remains the same as we work toward improving the lives of all children, particularly African American children. Today Jack and Jill of America has over 252 chapters nationwide, representing over 40,000 families. Each chapter plans annual activities under five general thrusts including: cultural awareness, health, educational development, civic engagement and social/recreational.
Avery*Sunshine takes no detours in creating melodious music for the masses. She makes the kind of music that undeniably satisfies the soul. Her sound is uplifting, vibrant, and exactly as her namesake suggests, full of sunshine. She brings people together through her riveting stage performances, candid and often humorous stage banter, and optimistic anthems about love and life. Born Denise White in Chester, Pennsylvania, her roots are firmly grounded in the church. Avery, along with her Grammy award winning, creative life partner, Dana Ã¢â¬ÅBigDaneÃ¢â¬Â Johnson; the singer, pianist and composer has created a remarkable and unforgettable sound.
The Atlanta based singerÃ¢â¬â¢s no holds barred signature soulful R&B appeal has garnered praise from the iconic musical figure, The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, who raved, Ã¢â¬ÅI love Avery*Sunshine!Ã¢â¬Â She has also received praiseworthy acclimation from luminaries such as Patti LaBelle, Berry Gordy and Boy George, who proclaimed on Twitter Ã¢â¬Å@averysunshine love this womanÃ¢â¬â¢s voice.Ã¢â¬Â
