SUZETTE'S SONS

Adrian and Aaron Sterling are only half of Suzette Son’s picture.

"Our mother raised four artists who are talented and creative in their unique ways. Our goal is to bring our talents together to create powerful and original works of art. Through these stories, we want the audience to feel heard and understood. Our intention is to lead every production with love, respect, and genuine care as our mother instilled in us growing up. We will use our art to share and celebrate the spirit of one the greatest woman ever to live, Suzette."
