With all of the wonderful accolades and recognition in the industry, as well as in the media, Carlene’s dream for “Dreamgirls Tribute” has been for it to be more than a means of entertainment, but to be a vehicle used by God to instill hope and encouragement to a world out there. “The touching story of Dreamgirls is relatable to all of us. We all at some point in our lives have hit rock bottom and are fighting to make our way back to the top, or have put some dream aside for whatever reason. My heart for “Dreamgirls Tribute” is to provide empowerment to men, women, and children to go after their dreams, believe in themselves, and fulfill their divine purpose by being the best they can be.”
Carlene’s dreams for this show have become a REALITY, as their performances have inspired many people throughout the country, as well as abroad. “Dreamgirls Tribute” has performed for corporate award banquets for companies such as Lockheed Martin delivering the message to Dream…Achieve…and Succeed. They have performed for major networking events that provide community outreach and recognize the need for empowerment of women and children such as The Millionaire’s Herstory Brunch, promoted by the late Lorian Williams. Whether it is a corporate seminar, a special event, or a night out of entertainment and dancing, “Dreamgirls Tribute” continues to perform in venues throughout being ambassadors who convey a universal message of hope, inspiring all they touch.
“We welcome individuals, small businesses, and corporations interested in sponsorship opportunities to help us get this message across. Please email me at email@example.com if you would like to do so”.
Overall, Carlene Mitchell has proven to be an interactive entertainer who strongly believes in performing with the people, and not for the people. –“Performing is a conversation with the audience;…we all communicate, we all get involved.”
