Amanda Bradshaw's arrangement of "Lift Every Voice and Sing" originally written as a poem by James Weldon Johnson and later set to music by his brother John Rosamond Johnson.

Lift Ev'ry Voice - considered the Black National Anthem - is a masterpiece born out of the Black experience and has served as a beacon of hope, perseverance, and strength for those disenfranchised folks over the last 100+ years. As we face challenging times in our world, we turn to this hymn to direct our path and re-galvanize our efforts in creating a better place where each of us have our full humanity.

This arrangement was part of the We Will Rise Summit: Black Artists and the Soul of Our Music. Watch the full event here:
