Discovering the Roots of American Music in September 2021

Affirmation: We celebrate Gospel Music and honor all those that helped create it. Thank you God.

Every September at Unity Minneapolis the Music Department presents a month-long focus on a specific musical style, genre, artist, or era from our past. I am very excited to join with my friend and collaborator, Ginger Commodore, to assemble this journey through Gospel Music – from the Spirituals to contemporary Gospel artists. As challenging as this will be – to distill into four Sundays, decades and centuries of songs, composers, and artists – we look forward to bringing you a snapshot of the foundational, musical building blocks for the development of some of America’s most renowned contemporary music styles…blues, jazz, rock and roll.
