55-and-kickin_5875-300x300.jpgOn a chilly spring Saturday afternoon, a group of singers gathered at the Mama Foundation for the Arts, located in a tony brownstone in Harlem. Keyboardist Edward Cleghorn, Jr. warmed up on the stage at the far end of the living-room-cum-rehearsal-hall. Gold theatrical curtains lined one wall. The group sat in a semicircle, bantering with each other until Ken Wydro, director of Alive! 55+ and Kickin’ , announced that it was time to tell their stories and sing their songs.

As the title suggests, performers are 55 or older and this musical revue features gospel, R&B and pop music. But it also includes the singers’ personal stories.
