the small restaurant/bar right next door to the theatre makes a killer martini and the food was also very good

Lots of restaurants within walking distance - highly recommend The Stinking Rose on La Cienaga, about two blocks away.

From the opening act to the grand finale, the event was absolutely great. Yolanda was the openning performer, which put it all into perspective, and Faith Evans closed.

The performances were incredible and the venue is great. This is my second time attending this event and it was wonderful both times. A great value, supporting a terrific cause.

About Divas Simply Singing!

One diva. One song. One night to touch a million lives. Created and produced by actress/singer Sheryl Lee Ralph in 1991, Divas Simply Singing! is a loving tribute to the many friends lost by HIV/AIDS. The annual benefit concert, produced in conjunction with the Diva Foundation, helps to raise money and awareness about the spread of HIV/AIDS.

With a unique blend of song, entertainment and empowerment, this oft-praised and highly-anticipated event continues to attract some of the most talented women in show business, uniting in song to fight a good fight. Diverse talents such as Patti LaBelle, Chaka Khan, Oleta Addams, Melissa Manchester, Dianne Reeves, Roberta Flack, Eartha Kitt, Nancy Wilson, Stephanie Mills, Tremaine Hawkins, Karen Clark Sheard, Fergie and many others have raised their voices in song and support of Divas Simply Singing! In 2007, the original Dreamgirls from the award-winning Broadway musical – Sheryl Lee Ralph, Jennifer Holiday and Loretta Devine – reunited on stage in song and brought the house down!

This year, Divas Simply Singing! is thrilled to partner with the Women Alive Coalition and the Sister Circle South Africa project. In the past, proceeds from the concert have benefited such organizations as Project Angel Food, Caring for Babies with AIDS, Minority AIDS Project, Safe Place for Pediatric AIDS, National Minority AIDS Council, Black AIDS Institute and AIDS Healthcare Foundation.

In 2005, Sheryl Lee Ralph was the recipient of the first Red Ribbon Leadership Award at the United Nations on World AIDS Day for her visionary and unique way of continuing to combat HIV/AIDS.
