Cheryl-Pepsii-Riley-2Cheryl Pepsii Riley has been hosting an event, “Black Velvet Monday Experience”. It’s an open-mic event that has been running for over 8 years in New York City. Her goal is to have a place for younger singers and musicians and for those that are a bit older and couldn’t find the space to express themselves with their gift of song or musicianship. It’s a place for aspiring vocalist and musicians to come out and “own their gift”! Their motto: Trust Your Gift!
