A Story of Suffering, Strength and Endurance

The inspirational play “Jubilee” is tribute to the Fisk Jubilee Singers







The world-renowned Fisk Jubilee Singers shattered racial barriers in the U.S. and abroad, entertaining kings and queens. For centuries, the bold a cappella African American ensemble born on the campus of Fisk University has blended their rich voices together sharing a heritage of suffering, strength and endurance.  With uplifting spirituals and hymns including “Wade in the Water,” “Ain’t That Good News,” “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot” and “Nobody Knows the Trouble I’ve Seen,” this a cappella musical with more than three dozen songs is sure to ignite audiences.

Taking you to the theatre this morning spotlighting the a cappella tribute “Jubilee” playing at Arena Stage running through June 9th.  Caught up with two of the cast members, Bueka Uwemedimo and Lisa Arrindell.
