Description Two evenings of soul-stirring gospel and body-shaking rhythm & blues from artists such as the legendary Sam Moore (of Sam & Dave fame) to awesome Brooklyn-based choirs. Returning for its second year, our annual Rhythm & BAM concert series explores the musical art forms that are the backbone of modern popular music.
The power and the glory of gospel takes centerstage with Praise Music as Grammy-nominee Beverly Crawford and two of the finest choirs in spiritual music bring their heavenly soul to BAM. Crawford has drawn a large following with her mighty vocal range—from heartbreaking balladry to uproarious shouting power.
Emmanuel Baptist Church’s Total Praise choir, based in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, has brought gospel to new heights. Total Praise raises the roof with an awesome ensemble of singers and musicians. Equally inspiring are fellow Brooklynites New Life Tabernacle Mass Choir, led by Bishop Eric R. Figueroa, Sr. Established over 20 years ago, this beloved choir is dedicated to presenting gospel in a theatrical fashion.
