Lift Every Voice: A Celebration of Song from the Black Church Experience
By Cynthia Wilson
The observance of Black History Month in the life of the Church can take on many forms. Yet any celebration without gratitude and appreciation of the contributions from the Africana traditions to the music life of the whole church would be incomplete.
To give a taste of the scope and variety of musical styles and genres, Discipleship Ministries presents a four-part video series, “Lift Every Voice: A Celebration of Song from the Black Church Experience” with Bishop Ernest Lyght and the Rev. Dr. Cynthia Wilson, Executive Director of Worship Resources. Bishop Lyght and Dr. Wilson sing and explore how music from the Black Church, such as the traditional Negro spiritual, hymns, songs both sacred and the secular, and contemporary gospel, has contributed to the rich musical tapestry of today’s worship experience.
Join us for this lively presentation of A Celebration of Song from the Black Church Experience.
