FEATURED ALUMNUS OF THE MONTH
Alfa Anderson, Class of 1964
Alfa Anderson is a recording and performing artist best known for her work with the legendary group Chic. It is her voice you hear on Chic’s top selling hits like Le Freak, I Want Your Love and Good Times. She also provided backing vocals on Chic-produced projects for Sister Sledge and Diana Ross.
That success came about as a result of meeting Luther Vandross who mentored her and supported her musical growth and development. Alfa and Luther provided backing vocals on the first Chic tour and Alfa later went on to become the group’s lead singer after Norma Jean Wright left to pursue a solo career. After the original group disbanded, Alfa continued to record and tour with her mentor, Luther Vandross. Her discography reads like a Who’s Who of show business greats having provided backing vocals for Mick Jagger, Aretha Franklin, Johnny Mathis, Dionne Warwick, Bryan Adams, Bryan Ferry, Billy Squier, Jonathan Butler, Eddie Murphy and Teddy Pendegrass to name a few.
Alfa grew up in a musical family. As a little girl, she would peck the keys on the piano in her home and make up songs. Her love for music led her to join the band while at Laney, where she played in the marching and concert bands. After graduating from Laney, she enrolled at Paine College. She joined the choir at Paine which helped to rekindle her love for singing.
After a career in education (Alfa was principal of a New York City high school) she returns to her first love—music. She is currently working on a solo CD.
Why Do We Exist?
The Lucy Craft Laney High School Alumni Association was organized to support the curricula and extracurricual programs of Lucy C. Laney High School. Our primary goal is to raise funds to support Laney High School. We are the official alumni group sanctioned by the administration of Lucy C. Laney High School.
It is our hope that every class will list its reunion officers and activities on our website. By doing so, we provide alumni, around the country, a single source for information surrounding alumni and reunion activities.
The LCLHSAA is not a reunion group and we have no desire to interrupt or interfere with any alumni group activities. Our hope is to serve as an umbrella organization which brings all of the alumni classes and groups together in an organized and unified manner designed to maximize our energies in support of Lucy C. Laney High School.
All funds raised by the LCLHSAA will be used to provide financial support for the students and programs at Laney High School. By joining the LCLHSAA, you ensure our ability to provide needed financial support to the school.
We encourage all alumni of Lucy C. Laney High School to become a financial member of the alumni association. The $25.00 annual membership fee helps us to continue to provide much needed financial assistance to the school.
If you are a financial member, we thank you for your continued support. If you are not, we encourage you to join us NOW. Consider making a donation to your alumni association. Together, we will return the PRIDE to Laney-Walker Boulevard.
