I invite you and your loves ones to a very special Musical Prayer Station and house concert with Shameem Taheri-Lee on Sunday, March 31st, at 6:30 pm.

Her unique fusion of 90s-esque R&B/ soul with 70s funk and a twist of jazz is imbued with personal and conscious lyrics. Think: Alicia Keys meets Sade in a jazz club, with a subtle edge of Michael Jackson.
