Sweet Honey In The Rock 40Th Anniversary: Forty & Fierce will be the group's most ambitious and adventurous live performance presentation to date. It will be their first scripted show, helmed by noted Director/Choreographer Dianne McIntyre. Sweet Honey will be featuring a visual scrapbook theme, medley's comprised of some of their most popular songs, special guest musicians and vocalists, and intimate personal stories by each member that will be woven into a retrospective look at their seminal artistic and musical journey over the past four decades.
Rooted in a deeply held commitment to create music out of the rich textures of African American legacy and traditions, Grammy Award winning SWEET HONEY IN THE ROCK possesses a stunning vocal prowess that captures the complex sounds of blues, spirituals, traditional gospel hymns, rap, reggae, African chants, hip hop, ancient lullabies, and jazz improvisation. Sweet Honey's collective voice, often accompanied by hand percussion instruments, produces a sound filled with soulful harmonies and intricate rhythms.
