La Mama Cantata is one the most important pieces of work she has ever been apart of and she can't wait to share it with Europe! Thanks be to God, her amazing family, and her incredible husband, Kweku.
How does Starr feel about taking the La MaMa Cantata on tour?
"I am completely overjoyed about taking La Mama Cantata to Europe! To have the opportunity to spread Ellen's message of love, self-determination, and faith is nothing short of a blessing. I have been thoroughly inspired by Ellen's life and words and couldn't have chosen a better group of amazingly talented people to work with in telling the story. This project is truly something of a dream for me and I know that all of our audiences will feel the same joy, love, and power that I feel when we share this amazing story with them."
What is Starr's favorite moment of the La MaMa Cantata?
"My favorite moment in the show is when all of the depictions of Ellen come together to sing "Change." The message of the song really moves me and continues to inspire me to place great value on the work that I do, especially work that I create with other artists."
