Highlights include energetic call and response and blues harmonies, plus an optional soloist. Add the brass and rhythm for extra fun

    Our choir is only 7 members and we were able to do this piece with the energy and enthusiam that the piece requires. They enjoyed the syncopated feeling and the familiarity of the melodies.
