I had the pleasure of photographing “Night with the Divas” – a concert benefiting Black Coalition on AIDS and Rafiki Wellness Center in San Francisco. The featured divas included Paula West, Jennifer Bryce, Denise Perrier, and Faye Carol. They were backed by the Marcus Shelby Trio featuring Marcus Shelby on bass, Adam Shulman on piano, and Jeff Marrs on drums. It was a spectacular evening of music serving a great cause.
