This make-you-smile, tap-your-foot, clap-your-hands and nod-your-head spiritual arrangement Tom Fettke and Thomas Grassi is anything but "traditional!" The positive message of encouragement and the promise of better days will bring a smile to both the faces and hearts of all that sing and hear this imaginative and creative arrangement. The winning combination consists of a stage-band style accompaniment, fun keyboard realization, exceptionally easy-to-learn and sing choral parts, an easy-to-stylize solo, and an unexpected break-down hallelujah ending section, complete with a walking bass. The stylistic approach, reminiscent of Sister Act or The Preacher's Wife, makes this piece perfect for all ages and all choral performances. Get ready: Chariot's comin'!
