Performance Angélique Kidjo

Angélique Kidjo is a GRAMMY Award-winning Beninese singer, noted for her diverse musical influences and creative music videos. Her art roves across boundaries, genres and ethnicities, finding the connections that link musical forms from every part of the world, while still bonding with her own traditions. On top of her music is her activism and her passion for Africa’s women and girls. Last year, she was awarded Amnesty International’s Human Rights Award for her work standing up to injustice.

“Village traditions, cosmopolitan transformations, female solidarity, African pride and perpetual energy have been constants in Kidjo’s career.”
— The New York Times


Join us at 7pm for a pre-performance ARTS EXPERIENCE with Girls Rock Birmingham!
One hour before the show, participants of Girls Rock Birmingham, an organization that uses music as a tool to empower and instill confidence in girls, will perform their songs and talk with Birmingham artist LaShondra Hemphill about the importance of supporting and lifting up girls and women in every arena – a pursuit that Angélique Kidjo is committed to, through her work around the globe.

FREE Lecture, Thursday March 22 @ 6PM
