The Road with Cove Queen Janine Sullivan

with Janine Sullivan

Every now and then while walking on the road of life we pause and wonder what is next. Sometimes the answer comes in round about ways while questions linger in the air as if waiting for some sort of realization to arrive before a resolution follows.  For more than thirty years I have worked in the field of health care.  Along the way I have spoken to people from all walks of life.  I learned that we all have more in common than we may think.  I believe many of us ask big questions of life and eagerly await practical answers.

The Road is an out of the box program that finds common ground and discovers the answers to life’s most interesting questions. Come on The Road with me, Cove Queen Janine Sullivan and together we will see what life has to offer.

Cheryl Albright is a soul-stirring singer, storyteller, playwright, performer, and producer on a mission to celebrate and remember the lives and accomplishments of African American female vocalists and their historical journeys. Her two one-woman productions OH FREEDOM OVER ME and ELLA 100! have done just that. Known for the versatility in her vocal performance and intimate, conversational style in her storytelling, Cheryl masterfully reaches a broad and diverse audience in a way that is both entertaining and educational.

OH FREEDOM OVER ME debuted in 2015 in partnership with the University of Rhode Island Urban Culture Arts Program to an audience of 275 attendees. The show earned Cheryl the 2015 Woman of Achievement Award and featured article in She Shines Magazine by the YWCA. Receiving a grant from the Rhode Island State Council of the Arts (RISCA) was a special highlight for Cheryl to perform for female inmates at the Rhode Island Department of Corrections.

ELLA 100! debuted on Super Bowl Sunday 2017 to a standing room only crowd of over 300 theatergoers. It was honored as one of the Top 5 Jazz Events To See by Go Local Providence.

Cheryl is a New England States Touring Artist (NEST). With over thirty-five years of professional singing experience, she has traveled throughout the country singing at various special events featuring and honoring civil rights icons such as Ruby Nell Sales, U.S. Representative John Lewis, Dorothy Cotton, and The New York Times Magazine reporter Nikole Hannah-Jones. The Bristol Community College Reading Program asked Cheryl to produce and perform a celebration show, HALLELUJAH FOR HENRIETTA, based on their reading of the book The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks written by Rebecca Skloot.

Born and raised in the foothills of North Carolina, Cheryl comes from a family of singers, musicians, and community activists. Her mother, grandmother, and the Southern Baptist Church were instrumental in exposing her to all genres of music including country-western, bluegrass, and classical. Cheryl believes that music and storytelling is a bridge builder that speaks to the matters of the heart and digs deep in the billows of one’s soul.

Thoughts by Janine:

Hosting, “The Road With Cove Queen Janine,” is a dream come true. It is also the end of false beliefs in myself and the beginning of authentic living.
I grew up in, and later married into a culture of fear based thinking. For as long as I can remember I felt like I was in a room and the fire alarm was sounding. Even though there was no evidence of trouble or concern I often felt tense and over cautious. This stifled my life.
As I matured I felt fear came into me like osmosis. That is to say, the fear never felt like mine to own but it was so close to me that it felt like mine.
Throughout my forties and fifties I reasoned out many of the false stories that swept my mind. I homed in n my personal truths. Truths that were unique to me and my individuality, completely apart from other people’s perspective began to come forth.
Simply taking that action and having the willingness to see my truth revealed what was before me all along.
An abundance of curiosities unfolded. Opportunities became visible. My life was blossoming.
Opportunity is always right there on the path. Awakening to who we are apart from what we’ve been told or experienced sets the shift in motion.
This moment holds both the key and the treasure.
Sift through the stories and falsehoods with gentle love and compassion for yourself. Soon you will clearly see your radiant self and your purpose in this life.
