Sylvia “SylkyDiva” Wilson was born and raised in Montgomery, AL. She has performed in a variety of venues— from outdoor and indoor festivals to concert halls including the world famous Apollo Theater with the Alabama State University Choir, and became the opening act for the S.O.S Band, Rough Endz, and Roger Troutman and Zapp. She also landed theatrical roles as “Effie” in DreamGirls and “Evillene” in The Wiz.
While auditioning for a lead role, she was informed that her voluptuous figure and mocha-colored skin did not line up with the vision for the character and she was advised to lose weight and lighten her skin in order to be considered for the role. In 2007, she decided to showcase her personal experience in her debut theatrical production, “Plus Size Divas The Musical”.
Then in 2011, “Plus Size Divas The Movie” was birthed. In addition to performing, Sylky is an educator with a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Music Education. She is The CEO/Founder of SylkySmoove Entertainment and SylkySoul For The Enrichment Of The Mind, Body & Spirit. Both organizations promote and provide services that focus on empowerment, motivation, size-acceptance and uplifting those that are not considered “the norm” in today’s society.
