SAY Gala Honoree

Freestyle Love Supreme
SAY: Budd Mayer Advocacy Award

Conceived by Anthony Veneziale and created by Thomas Kail, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Anthony Veneziale in 2004 before In the Heights and Hamilton, Freestyle Love Supreme is a blend of hip-hop, improvisational theater, music, and vocal styling, often with special surprise guests. The MCs, musicians, and beatboxers take the audience on a completely improvised musical ride, all based off of audience suggestions. The recipient of a special 2020 Tony Award, FLS has performed on stages from Cape Town to Melbourne to Edinburgh to NYC and practically everywhere in between. They are the subject of the Hulu documentary We Are Freestyle Love Supreme. Freestyle Love Supreme was produced off-Broadway and on Broadway twice by Thomas Kail, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Jenny & Jon Steingart, and Jill Furman. Since 2021, Freestyle Love Supreme has proudly been partnering with SAY to bring beatboxing and freestyle skills to the amazing community of campers at Camp SAY.

“The Freestyle Love Supreme family is deeply honored by this recognition from SAY. We are in awe of this community and feel lucky that we get to be a small part of the journey for the inspiring youth that attend Camp SAY. We have loved the opportunity to partner with and learn from Travis, Noah and the entire team at SAY so that we can better serve the camp community every summer.  We look forward to continuing our partnership, and to bringing meaningful experiences to The Stuttering Association for the Young long into the future.”

Thank you for this lovely gesture, as the work truly lights us up!
