Damien Sneed - We Shall Overcome - Celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr.

Gospel,Jazz

At the age of 8, Sneed led the choir of Good Shepherd Baptist Church in Augusta, Georgia, later going on to collaborate with Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross, and Wynton Marsalis. Now the former prodigy takes center stage in a show of his own that celebrates the movement inspired by Martin Luther King, Jr. From his commanding post at the piano, Sneed leads an ensemble of gospel singers and jazz musicians in music ranging from Stevie Wonder to Sunday morning revivals, weaving together blues, pop, gospel, jazz, Broadway, and spirituals.
