Aisha Jackson, Cassondra James, Angela Bichrett and More Gather to Support Middle Collegiate Church

During the holiday season, Broadway stars continue to give back and support many organizations during difficult times! 

Matthew Johnson Harris

The Middle Collegiate Church will be one of these organizations to be recognized on December 21, 2020, at 8 pm EST.  Directed and hosted by Matthew Johnson Harris, a star-studded cast of some of Broadway’s most talented women will spend the evening engaging in singing, dancing, and holiday joy to support and celebrate the women at Middle Collegiate Church in “A Mosaic Christmas”!

Harris has stated that the Middle Church has served as a home for benefit concerts that raise money towards fighting social justice issues. This upcoming concert serves as a ‘thank you’ from Harris and all of the Broadway stars. In addition to giving back in song, the concert will raise money to support rebuilding the Middle Church after a fire burned down their 128-year-old historical building on December 5. Additionally, the proceeds will also support the church’s Black Lives Matter Fund, public education initiatives, queer programming, and community care.

Some of the Broadway names that will be featured in “A Mosaic Christmas” include Aisha Jackson (Frozen, Waitress), Angela Birchett (The Clark Sisters: First Ladies of Gospel, The Color Purple), Cassondra James (Once on This Island), Carla Stewart (Tina the Musical, The Color Purple), and many more!
