Beginning with the languid strains of a stunning low voice solo, and incorporating the traditional spiritual, “City Called Heaven,” this compelling anthem is a mixture of styles. The stately opening surrenders to a jazzy theme that is contagious in its “vibe” using the words almost as a rhythm instrument. The solo returns with choral backup, and the anthem ends with soulful exclamations celebrating the hope of heaven. Now available in three voicing options!
