"Trying to describe an evening spent with Sweet Honey In The Rock would be like trying to describe seeing Moses part the red Sea. Unless you were there, you can’t fully take it in." — Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
"…I have always believed art is the conscience of the human soul and that artists have the responsibility not only to show life as it is but to show life as it should be. … Sweet Honey In The Rock has withstood the onslaught. She has been unprovoked by the 30 pieces of silver. Her songs lead us to the well of truth that nourishes the will and courage to stand strong. She is the keeper of the flame." -- Harry Belafonte
For over three decades Sweet Honey In The Rock has used her voice, nationally and internationally, to celebrate our collective humanity, even as she sings about the challenging issues of racism; social, economic and environmental injustice; equal rights and greed that seem to be pulling our nation apart. Sweet Honey invites her audiences to raise their voices — to “heed the call” — in concert and in life.
Rooted in a deeply held commitment to create music out of the rich textures of African American legacy and traditions, Sweet Honey In The Rock possesses a stunning vocal prowess that captures the complex sounds of Blues, spirituals, traditional gospel hymns, rap, reggae, African chants, Hip Hop, ancient lullabies, and jazz improvisation.
