MEMORIAL HALL’S REFLECTION SERIES PRESENTS BLACK OPRY

Feat. Ruby Amanfu & Kyshona Armstrong
with Julie Williams, Jett Holden, Roberta Lea and Tae Lewis

Ruby Amanfu is a Ghana-born, Nashville-based recording artist, producer and Grammy, Soul Train and BET Award nominated songwriter. Her accolades include co-writing Grammy-nominated Songs of the Year, “Hard Place” for the artist, H.E.R. and “A Beautiful Noise” for artists Alicia Keys and Brandi Carlile.

Having written and recorded music since her teens, Amanfu has released 7 critically acclaimed solo studio albums. Her songs have appeared on ABC, CBS, Fox, CMT, MTV, Netflix, Hulu, The Food Network and in shows such as “Station 19”, “Little Fires Everywhere”, “Community”, “Nashville”, “Pretty Little Liars”, and in films such as “The Secret Life of Bees”, “Hope Springs” and “The Photograph.”

As a songwriter and producer for the ABC series, “QUEENS”, Amanfu penned songs such as “Hear Me” and “Until My Final Breath” for Brandy and “Love Still Finds Us” for Naturi Naughton.

Her vocals also appear on Beyoncé’s track, “Don’t Hurt Yourself” on the Grammy-nominated album, Lemonade, and alongside Jack White on the White Stripes singer-guitarist’s 2012 and 2014 solo LPs, Blunderbuss and Lazaretto, highlighted by a performance of their collaboration, “Love Interruption”, at the 2013 Grammy Awards.

Outside of her vast musical career, Amanfu is the current president of the Nashville Chapter of the Recording Academy, Artist ambassador for the beauty brand, No.7, wife and stepmother.

Black Opry is a home for Black artists and Black fans of country, blues, folk, and Americana music. Country music has been made by and loved by Black people since it’s conception. For just as long, we have been overlooked and disregarded in the genre by fans and executives. Black Opry wants to change that. We invite you to discover, support and enjoy the Black artists that make magic in this space. One of the most valuable aspects of country music is its
versatility and diversity in sound. Country, blues, folk, and Americana music often overlap or weave together- these artists explore all of those sounds and intersections. The Black Opry Revue showcases the diversity in sound and stories that Black artists offer to these genres.
