Gospel & Spiritual Songs in Concert
their unique gospel performances the Jackson Singers reach out to an
enthusiastic public with the messages of love, joy and passion.
The magic word gospel attracts thousands of people of all ages. It
is considered to be the origin of American black music and the Jackson
Singers` rendition is full of charm, contagious cheerfulness and unrestrained
Part of the success is due to their broad repertoire reaching from
spirituals and gospel songs such as "Kumbajah", "Motherless
Child" or "Oh Happy Day" to religious ballads and pop
ballads with religious slants. They sing about the Battle of Jericho
as well as about the Last Judgment Day in "When the Saints go
Marching in". The harmony of the soloists is overwhelming and
the sound combinations create an atmosphere that is dense, prickling,
almost electrifying, leaving no one untouched.
Soul & Gospel Gala
Jackson Singers have become world famous thanks to their regularly
sold out gospel concerts, and they are highly welcome guest performers
at great jazz festivals, summer happenings, openair concerts and other
Their emotionally moving concert repertoires are not restricted to
Christmas seasons, with their many world hits they are just as ready
for festivals and concert programs: from Louis Armstrong`s "What
a wonderful Wrld", Michael Jackson`s "We are the World" and
Bob Dylan`s "Blowing in the Wind" to Gershwin`s "Summertime" and "Ol`Man
River". Of course, their program also includes "Oh Happy
Day", "Precious Lord", "Amazing Grace" and
other true gospel and spiritual songs.
<<Black Music Experience>>
"From Spiritual to Swing in Song and Music"
The music tells the story of black people since the beginning of slavery
in the 16th century, and it has never ceased to represent the past,
to bring hope and to tell of the struggles which were the fate of black
musicians and singers.
Blues, Jazz and Rock'n'Roll - all of them musical styles created by
Afroamericans. Blues are the essence and origin of jazz, gospel and
negro spirituals are the essence and origin of blues. The Jackson Singers
interpret the familiar, often deeply sad and yet hopeful melodies with
rare, powerful joyfulness.
Their musical land of milk and honey (Kieler Nachrichten) contains
treasures from "Glory Glory Halleluja" to " Down By
The Riverside" and "Elijah Rock", from Billie Holiday`s "God
Bless The Child" to Aretha Franklin`s " Amazing Grace",
from Louis Armstrongs "What A Wonderful World" to Duke Ellingtons "Satin
Doll". Their versions of George Gershwin`s world famous opera
debut "Summertime" has conquered the heart of the public
just as much as the musical hit "Ol`Man River" and Simon
and Garfunkel`s pop ballad "Bridge over Troubled Waters".
The Jackson Singers perform with 9 to 10 artists, 6 to 7 of them soloists
and 3 to 4 musicians (piano or grand piano, base and percussion).
