Like the Blues, both jazz and gospel had their origins in the cotton fields of the pre-Civil War south, when African slaves, singing and playing to help ease their suffering, created the musical roots that would evolve into these purely American musical styles. This show features Take 6, ten-time Grammy-winning a capella gospel vocal sextet.

Their upbeat, swinging take on gospel defies categorization, and has led to collaborations with artists as diverse as Quincy Jones, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles and Queen Latifah. The group will be joined by Grammy-winner and multi-platinum gospel star Yolanda Adams, who has merged R&B and soul with gospel to create her world renowned signature sound.
