American Icon Leontyne Price ReturnsTo The Stage

Bronx resident needs your help to bring “Standing By - Leontyne Price” project to the stage for 55th Anniversary
BRONX, N.Y. - Aug. 3, 2015 - PRLog -- Raising $150,000 wasn’t the most appealing project for singer, songwriter, and producer Karmen Michael. “But whether it’s a song or a play, good stories, should be told. In this case, the story must be larger than life… like Ms. Price.”

Ms. Price is the recipient of 19 Grammys, A Presidential Medal of Freedom, A Kennedy Center Honor, A National Medal of the Arts, The French Order of the Arts and Letters, The Italian Order of Merit, 2 Emmys (one for her televised concert at The White House), as well as numerous honorary degrees. An advocate for the arts and human rights, she has paved the way for women, blacks, and all Americans. Her stellar debut at the Metropolitan Opera House, in New York City, on January 27, 1961 garnered her a 42 minute standing ovation. She is beloved not only in America but around the world.

The passing of Karmen’s grandmother, also a singer, in 2009 due to Alzhiemers has been the fuel that has kept this passion project going. “Wanting to honor Ms. Price, on the 55th Anniversary of her Met debut, is also honoring my grandmother.” The two women had a lot in common. They both shared a generosity of spirit and volumes of knowledge that was simply priceless.

Check out Standing By - Leontyne Price on and add your name to the list of history makers.  Let’s make the 55th anniversary of her Met debut, “historic!” Let’s keep the legacy alive.
