About Atlantic Starr Atlantic Starr formed in 1976 in Greenburgh, NY by three brothers; lead singer/guitarist David Lewis, lead singer/keyboardist Wayne Lewis and trombonist/percussionist Jonathan Lewis. The lineup was filled out by singer Sharon Bryant, trumpeter William Sudderth, saxophonist Damon Rentie (who was replaced by Koran Daniels in 1981), bassist Clifford Archer, drummer Porter Carroll, Jr., and percussionist/flutist Joseph Phillips.



They signed with A&M and in 1978 released their self-­‐titled debut album containing the funk hit "Stand Up" (which made it to #16 on Billboard's R&B singles chart). In 1981, they released their third album, Radiant featuring the hit single "When Love Calls", establishing them as a supergroup in the R&B market. It was on Radiant that the charismatic Bryant (who was featured on "When Love Calls") really blossomed as a singer and her lead vocals played a major role in the band's success. The band followed with 1982's Brilliance (which contained the number two R&B single "Circles") and 1983's Yours Forever; the latter includes "Touch a Four Leaf Clover," another major hit featuring Bryant. In 1985, the group released “As the Band Turns”— Atlantic Starr's first post-­‐Sharon Bryant album and sixth album overall. The album featured the major hit "Secret Lovers," and in 1987, they moved to Warner Bros. to release “All in the Name of Love “which included the smash hit "Always”, which soared to #1 on both the Billboard pop and R&B charts. Atlantic Starr released their last album, Metamorphosis in May 2017.

About Innercity Lighthouse Center, Inc. is based in the South Bronx (New York City), a non-profit organization with tax-exempt status under Section 501 (c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code. All proceeds from the virtual telethon as well as any contributions are fully tax-deductible.

It is the mission and vision of Innercity Lighthouse to change New York City into a model community of hope, positive change and economic growth by providing educational, vocational and job development programs for the underserved community.
