Power of SONG

Formed in Washington, D.C. in 1973, Sweet Honey in the Rock continues to spellbind audiences with a blend of a cappella vocals, dance and sign language. While the group has undergone line-up changes over the years, the current quartet version (plus a sign-language interpreter) of the Grammy-winning vocalists is well-respected for their renditions of gospel and spiritual music, as well as addressing socially conscious topics – civil rights, domestic violence and immigration rights. Also, for the short-pants set, the group has been on Sesame Street!


8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 16, The Ritz Theatre & Museum, Downtown, $45, ritzjacksonville.com.
