Sweet Honey In The Rock

MLK Day Celebration Reclaiming the Beloved Community

Join Washington, D.C.-based, African-American a cappella ensemble, Sweet Honey in the Rock®, as they mark this year's Martin Luther King Jr. Day with a celebration of hope, resilience, and new beginnings. The ensemble will once again take the stage at the historic Lincoln Theatre, where they will look out to an audience of thousands from around the world who have joined via Zoom so that they can be seen by the artists. The concert will feature an exciting lineup of special guests including Kiki Shepard, Keith David, Mumu Fresh, Azar Lawrence, and Wycliffe Gordon who reflect the life of Reverend King and offer words of inspiration for the future.

Since 1973, Sweet Honey has empowered and inspired with songs about a range of social issues, blending potent themes with gorgeous artistry to stir the mind and the soul. Throughout their sterling career, the ensemble has raised their voices to defend civil rights, social justice, equality, and freedom for all.

The three-time Grammy® Award-nominated and internationally renowned group currently consists of members Carol Maillard, Louise Robinson, Nitanju Bolade Casel, Aisha Kahlil, Rochelle Rice, Christie Dashielland features Romeir Mendez on upright acoustic bass and electric bass. This performance will include American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter, Barbara Hunt.
