Perrin Kennedy, Class of 2020, from Southfield, Michigan, is a Fisk “Featured Student”

Perrin Kennedy


My name is Perrin Kennedy and I am from Southfield, Michigan. In Michigan, I live with my par­ents and younger broth­er. I am cur­rent­ly a junior at Fisk major­ing in Political Science. Political Science excites me because of the impact pol­i­tics plays in the lives of oth­ers. I believe that in order to be an active cit­i­zen for pos­i­tive change, you need to under­stand pol­i­tics. I chose Fisk because of the fam­i­ly-like envi­ron­ment, their focus on devel­op­ing lead­ers, and their mis­sion and val­ues. I cur­rent­ly hold a 3.46 GPA, and I am the recip­i­ent of the 2018 National Bar Association Gateway to Success Scholarship. In 2017, I was award­ed the 3rd Annual Judge Allegra L. Walker Oratorical Contest Scholarship. I am very active on the Fisk cam­pus.” Read More.

I have the hon­or of hav­ing been clas­si­cal­ly trained since I was ten years old. I was being groomed to be in this ensem­ble by par­tic­i­pat­ing in The Choral Arts Link MET Singer Ensemble. Having the expe­ri­ence of per­form­ing pro­fes­sion­al­ly as an ado­les­cent pre­pared me for the priv­i­lege to sing with this impec­ca­ble ensem­ble.” Read more.


Meet Dartisha Mosley, Fisk Jubilee Singers

Dartisha Mosley


Dartisha Mosley indi­cates, “I grew up in Aurora, IL, the City of Lights. For as long as I could remem­ber, I was singing. Every oppor­tu­ni­ty to sing or per­form filled me with excite­ment, and I was com­mit­ted. Throughout grade school and high school, I was a reg­u­lar par­tic­i­pant in tal­ent shows and the­atre pro­duc­tions. At my alma mater, East Aurora High School, I sang with our hon­ors cho­rus and became an active mem­ber of the Tri-M Music National Honor Society where I worked to cel­e­brate and bring music to all stu­dents in my dis­trict through con­certs, plays, and musi­cals. I enrolled at Fisk University in the Fall of 2016 and began my first lessons in Classical Voice and ped­a­gogy under the tute­lage of Ms. Gwendolyn Brown, M.M.” Read more.
