You've never heard it like this before! A dramatic solo provides the powerful introduction before this hip spiritual arrangement kicks into a groovy jazz waltz. A call and response verse highlights individual sections of the choir (or soloists), and an ultra-cool transition builds and modulates into the final choral refrain. Great to perform with a jazz combo.
