About

Award-winning Broadway veteran Tina Fabrique (Ragtime, Bring in da’ Noise, Bring in da’ Funk, The Wiz, Bubbling Brown Sugar, Gospel at Colonus), pays homage to gospel—spiritual music that was and still is a staple of African-American life. Rooted in the solo and responsive church singing of the African-American South, gospel originated from both Black and white musics of the 19th century; Black spirituals, slave songs, and white hymnody, emerging at the same time as ragtime, blues and jazz.
