For mixed voices with optional children's choir, this Joel Raney setting begins with the simple statement, "someone's prayin', Lord, come by here." African rhythms take over with "someone's shoutin'" followed by a lush 4-part treatment of "someone's cryin'." Caribbean rhythms flavor the "someone's singin'" verse developing into an exciting gospel, hand-clapping high point before settling back to a final prayerful statement of "kum ba yah." The rhythm packet contains parts for: keyboard, acoustic guitar and percussion (triangle, wind chimes, shaker, conga).
