Damien Sneed - We Shall Overcome
A Celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Special Guest Erica Campbell
Featuring Bythax Ensemble
At the age of 8, Sneed led the choir of Good Shepherd Baptist Church in Augusta, Georgia, later going on to collaborate with Diana Ross and Wynton Marsalis, while serving as Aretha Franklin’s longtime music director including her recent Celebration of Life with Stevie Wonder, Arianne Grande, Faith Hill, Fantasia, and others. Now the former prodigy takes center stage in a show of his own that celebrates the movement inspired by Dr. 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.
