With spirituals, blues, rap, and hip hop music, and an exuberant gospel style, Crowns takes us through a young woman's journey as she recovers from a family tradegy in the home of her grandmother.

An award winning musical presented in every major city in the U.S., Crowns is an uplifting look at cultural history, a tribute to the fabulous church hats worn by African American women. Their hats symbolize defining moments and events experienced by these strong and powerful women. With soulful, spiritual and joyful music, they celebrate family and faith, love and loss, seeking (and finding) one’s true identity. From the powerful "His Eye is On The Sparrow" to the hilarious "Don't Touch The Hat", you'll be uplifted and swept away by every minuteCrowns.
"I'd lend my children before I'd lend my hats. I know my children know their way home." -Now THAT's "hattitude".
