Once in a Hundred Years

The Life and Legacy of Marian Anderson

Marian Anderson, a young girl from South Philadelphia who armed with only a voice, fought to break down one of the most daunting barriers closed to black Americans in the 1930s—the classical music stage.

Since its sold out release at Kimmel Center in Philadelphia, Once in a Hundred Years went on to win The Flicker’s International Film Festival and Best Documentary Feature at The Philadelphia Film Festival, the Audience Choice Award at the Pan African American Film festival in LA and was selected to AmDocs Film Festival in Palm Springs CA.

Sigma Sound

The Sound Heard 'Round the World

From Executive Producers John Legend and Al Roker comes one of the greatest music stories never told.

In 1960’s and 70s, Rhythm and Blues music came of age in the City of Brotherly Love. Against a backdrop of political strife, social unrest and racial tension, a new form of expression would emerge from the heart, soul and musical geniuses. Sophisticated, socially aware and lyrically provocative, The Philly Sound would go on to dominate the charts and change the key of American music.
