The Morehouse College Glee Club, an internationally renowned group from Atlanta, is coming to Southern Wesleyan University in Central, 3 p.m. Sunday, April 11, at Newton Hobson Chapel and Fine Arts Center.
For nearly a century, the Morehouse College Glee Club has continued a tradition of musical excellence. Over its history, the Glee Club has been a selective group, choosing only the most outstanding singers to become members.
The Morehouse College Glee Club has a resumé of performances from around the nation and around the world, which includes singing the National Anthem for Super Bowl XXVIII and performing with celebrities such as Natalie Cole, Stevie Wonder, Gloria Estefan, Aretha Franklin and Trisha Yearwood. In 2008, the Glee Club recorded the spiritual “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands” for Spike Lee’s movie “Miracle at St. Anna.”
The history of the Morehouse College Glee Club is intertwined with our nation’s history, as evidenced by performances at the funeral of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968, President Jimmy Carter’s inauguration in 1977, and at the opening and closing ceremonies of the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta. The Glee Club has performed internationally in West Africa, Russia, Poland, Bermuda, the Bahamas and South Africa.
