    "[Sweet Honey In the Rock]…empower individuals…to accomplish together what we cannot accomplish alone. They do this by filling out their music with only their voices. The sound moves into your heart and pushes it wider." — NPR Music

    Grammy Award-nominated and globally renowned a cappella ensemble Sweet Honey In The Rock continues to cultivate, evolve and add memorable moments to their indelible legacy as activists and artists. They have stayed true to their mission to educate, entertain and empower their audience and community through the dynamic vehicles of a cappella singing and American Sign Language interpretation. The magnificent beauty and power of their voices and inspired messages engage the ear, lift the soul and stimulate the mind in a positive journey you will not soon forget. 

    Sweet Honey In The Rock recently released the critically acclaimed album #LoveInEvolution, which perfectly showcases their collective voice by highlighting their prowess as both stunning vocalists and compelling songwriters in a collection of principally original songs. Relevantly touching on the complex cultural issues of our times — social justice, human and civil rights — the album also integrates many of the sounds of the African and African American musical genres, such as blues, spirituals, traditional gospel hymns, rap, reggae, African chants, hip-hop, ancient lullabies, and jazz improvisation, which have contributed to Sweet Honey’s core and patented style. 

    They continue to stretch their artistic boundaries as live performers to produce a sound filled with their soulful four-part harmonies and intricate rhythms, which is accompanied by hand percussion instruments and bass (acoustic upright and electric). Sweet Honey In The Rock deliver a heart opening, soul shaking and timeless experience.
