She also performed live on the 90’s popular musical television series by Black Entertainment Television Network called BET’s Jazz Central, hosted then by the late Lou Rawls. Silivea has also performed live in concert on New York City’s top Urban Radio station WBLS F.M.

Whether on the air, behind the piano, soundboard console, or at the microphone Silivea uses her platform to bridge generational gaps through music.

Message from Director Silivea Johnson

We are individuals, parents, and leaders who believe in the ability of music to reach and impact our community. Especially that which edifies love, encouragement, and acts of kindness. It is with our gifts and talents that we give back by uplifting and encouraging people of all ages and walks of life.  Through music our Central purpose is to ignite a Spirit of Hope and peace upon those who care to listen, and to spread a sense of joy and belonging throughout our community and neighboring regions. We will be careful to emphasize the fundamental sources of our motivation and inspiration. We hope the Community Arts Center Choir will represent the true spirit of arts in the Cape Fear region.

We believe it is a privilege to mentor young minds and give them a voice to be heard. We also know the impact of getting them to understand the power they possess, and the impact they have on the world around them through their voices.

In addition to that, we support a diversified means of outreach such as workshops, and networking opportunities to inspire and advance young minds and their families.
