“We’re going to celebrate the women of the group. The basic idea of the group is to bring voices together,” Maillard said. “We want to share the stories and experiences and show people how we are continually growing and expanding. We may be getting older but our music isn’t. A group of women who have been singing together for 40 years. That’s not something to sneeze at. Someone should sit up and take notice.”
Although less than half of the goal amount has been donated, Maillard hopes fans will continue to support Sweet Honey in the Rock’s 40th anniversary celebration.
“We want to 40th anniversary shows to have lighting design so that we can create ambiance and we’d like to travel with a percussionist. We want to share how a song came about,” Maillard said.
