Rejoice & Shout
"Rejoice & Shout" traces the evolution of Gospel through its many musical styles -- the spirituals and early hymns, the four-part harmony-based quartets, the integration of blues and swing into Gospel, the emergence of Soul, and the blending of Rap and Hip-Hop elements. Packed with evocative photos, rare audio recordings, stirring film appearances and TV performances, "Rejoice & Shout" covers the 200-year musical history of African-American Christianity. Culled from hundreds of hours of music, "Rejoice & Shout" features the crème de la crème of Gospel music.
