From Africa to America: We are the Drums
Performance plays a key role in narrating the African story in America. The Negro spirituals sung by enslaved Africans laid the foundation for today’s gospel, blues, jazz, and rap music. All of these musical forms provide artists the chance to express the Black experience.
Returning to Portsmouth, The Howard Gospel Choir, a group of students, alumni, and community members from Howard University, will lift our spirits as we celebrate, heal, and empower our communities. As the first college choir of its kind in the world, the Howard Gospel Choir is a trailblazer for gospel music ministries on collegiate campuses across the globe.

Cost is $35 per person. Space is Limited.
The event is brought to you in partnership with South Church
