An Evening of Rising Female Musicians

Ft. Chapel Hart, Akua Allridge & The Tribe, and Abby Elizabeth

In partnership with South Arts, a non-profit funded by The National Endowment for the Arts, the Acadiana Center for the Arts’ NXT SERIES presents a unique evening of music celebrating rising female musicians.

The evening stars Chapel Hart, a New Orleans-based country and gospel trio. Consisting of Grammy-nominated Danica Hart, her cousin Trea and sister Devynn, the ladies of Chapel Hart have been singing together since they were toddlers in their hometown of Poplarville, Mississippi and their musical chemistry clearly shows.  Their talent has landed them national attention from their online videos.

With finesse and charisma, this vocalist, composer and teacher, has successfully etched out a place for her unique musical expression, electrifying audiences in and around the nation’s capital with sold-out performances.  She sings in many languages including Portuguese, French, Spanish, English, Xhosa, and Twi.  Allrich is the recipient of South Arts Jazz Road Grant.


Abby Elizabeth is a local singer-songwriter who has quickly gained the attention of local music lovers in Acadiana.  Her soulful voice combined with her roots in Christian-worship music, shapes her unique sound.
