Listen to my interview below.
Sue Roseberry (a.k.a. “Mama Sue”) is a consummate artist and her gifts are truly inspiring and illuminating. She is recognized for her artistic ability and imaginative style. A graduate of the College of Santa Fe, she has a B.F.A. degree in performing arts. There seems to be no end to the talents that she possesses and those fortunate enough to hear her come away with a joyful heart and the feeling that they have been present for something beyond entertainment – it’s an experience.
Sue has come a long way since her earliest memory of singing standing on top of a table in her local church – to connecting with audiences all across the country as a singer, songwriter, playwright, storyteller or delivering the spoken word. She’s been playing for and directing choirs since the age of 10 years old. Her voice is incomparable and inimitable.
In 2001, she started “Tell It…Storytelling by Sue Roseberry” and has gone on to perform at the Exchange Place during the National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, Tennessee and other Storytelling Festivals throughout the country. She recently released a storytelling CD, entitled “A Story Inside Of Me”. She has also written a children’s book and has a collection of poems which is being prepared for publishing in the near future.
Sue has written more than 200 musical pieces, which range from gospel songs to children’s songs. She has songs that have been recorded by the Men of Promise on the GMWA Tampa Experience CD and the COGIC Mass Choir. Presentations of some of her original songs at the National GMWA Conventions have led to her music being performed in Spain, Japan and all over the United States. In 2004 she released her initial recording “Words Just Cannot Explain”. She has recorded live with the COGIC National Choir as well as the Gospel Music Workshop of America Mass Choir.
Sue wrote many of the plays utilized in the Apollo Showcase, a community theatre workshop for children ages 5 to 12 years of age as well as an ensemble work entitled, “Black Women Past & Present” which focused on the life of the late Dr. Viola Coleman, the first Black physician in Midland, Texas. She has appeared on stage with celebrity artists; Karen Clark Sheard in a musical drama, “Sex – The Silent Killer” for which she wrote three musical pieces and with Patti LaBelle in “The Heavenly Bound Train”. Sue received rave reviews for her unforgettable community theater portrayals as Effie White in Dream Girls; Bitsy in the McLaren Festival presentation of “Midville Communty Theatre”; Bessie Delany in “Having Our Say: The Delany Sisters’ First 100 Years”, “Mahalia” in the play by the same name; and Lena Younger in the musical “Raisin” which she also directed.
This proud, energetic mother and grandmother exploded on the international scene recently by becoming one of the Top 5 Finalists on Season 4 of Sunday Best – a national gospel singing competition on B.E.T. Network. The world has come to know and love “Mama Sue” and appreciate her sweet, humble character and that special essence that she possesses to command attention and inspire both young and old alike.
What’s next? Only time will tell.
