"Through the Divine Women Show, we are promoting women collaborating with each other and inspiring fellow artists to bring this mutual admiration to life through shared art and music. Women are infinitely unique, but by sharing special talents with each other and encouraging each other to accomplish their life purpose, we can create a higher vibration of artistry. This event showcases just how fabulous women artists are, especially in Staten Island. We are bringing together our community to showcase this artistry, and also to promote donations for the "Grrrl Power" Program at the Pride Center of Staten Island. We want young women to raise their self-esteem, to become leaders and to face the world with confidence in their beautiful feminine spirit. " - Joan Caddell, lead vocalist of Joan Caddell & The Midnight Choir.
