Join Washington, D.C.-based, African-American a cappella ensemble, Sweet Honey in the Rock®, in Celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day. With five-part harmonies and sign language interpretation, Sweet Honey’s sound ranges from African to blues to gospel and jazz. Throughout their sterling career, the ensemble has used their art form and their voices to defend civil rights, social justice, equality and freedom for all. Their messages of hope, resilience, and new beginnings feel particularly significant this year and come just days before the inauguration.
