Black Tie Attire. An exciting evening is planned with live entertainment, music, dancing, and camaraderie. Festivities will also include a silent auction, hors d’oeuvres, gourmet dining, and more.  Net Proceeds from the President’s Scholarship Ball benefit scholarships for Delaware State University students as part of DSU’s Greater Than One: Campaign for Students.

Broadway legend and show-stopping vocalist Jennifer Holliday will perform at the 2015 President’s Scholarship Ball.  Best known for her heart-wrenching performance of the torch ballad “And I am Telling You, I’m Not Going” in the 1981 smash hit, Dreamgirls, Holliday’s rendition of that classic is considered one of the all-time best performances in a Broadway musical. The iconic role made Holliday a household name and introduced her big, soulful voice to the world. 

Aaron Spears from the hit show Being Mary Jane and DSU alumnus, will be the Master of Ceremonies.
