Additionally, a new concert tour titled “Kathy Sledge Presents: My Sisters and Me” featuring KathySledge, Deniece Williams, Karyn White and CeCe Peniston, will launch on November 14 at Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut (additional dates to be announced). More than a concert, this “sisterhood” experience unites the legendary artists in story and song – connecting with the audience both individually on stage, as well as a group.
Kathy recorded KEEP IT MOVIN’ after releasing the EDM-powered remake of WE ARE FAMILY with Aristofreeks (Max Martire and Shanti Matkin) in 2013. With the EDM release of KEEP IT MOVIN’, Kathy received the “Outstanding Contribution Award” at the 2013 Ibiza DJ Awards. Says Kathy, “There is a true sense of liberation through the lyrics of Keep it Movin.’ My personal catharsis has become a journey for many…a ‘Mantra in Motion.'”
Kathy has also been partnering with talented songwriters and producers in both rock and urban genres for studio projects that span elements of R&B, rock and EDM; and launched the critically acclaimed showThe Brighter Side of Day: A Tribute to Billie Holiday. She also recently appeared on BET’s “Black Girls Rock,” where she performed in front of First Lady Michelle Obama, and other notables; and at the UNESCO Center for Peace’s first Nelson Mandela International Birthday Celebration.
