This contemporary spiritual boasts a rich history as a song of liberation and has been dubbed the Black American National Anthem. Greg's tour-de-force arrangement opens with a powerful unison before developing into thick gospel harmonies. Perform with the SoundTrax CD or the SoundPax parts for guitar, bass, and drumset. Both words and music will resonate long after the final glorious chord!
