Grammy-nominated and globally renowned a cappella ensemble Sweet Honey in the Rock continues to cultivate, evolve and add memorable moments to their indelible legacy as activists and artists. The members have stayed true to their mission to educate, entertain and empower audiences and communities through the dynamic vehicles of a cappella singing and American Sign Language interpretation. Their recent release - principally comprised of original songs-#LoveInEvolution, integrates many of the complex sounds of African American musical genres such as blues, spirituals, traditional gospel hymns, rap, reggae, African chants, hip-hop, ancient lullabies and jazz improvisation, all of which have contributed to Sweet Honey's core and patented style. The group's members continue to stretch their artistic boundaries as live performers to produce a sound filled with soulful four-part harmonies and intricate rhythms, which is accompanied by hand percussion instruments and basses, both acoustic upright and electric.

This performance will be sign language interpreted.
