CLC's 29th Annual Salute to Gospel with Sounds of Blackness and Reverend Charles Jenkins & Fellowship Chicago

Sounds of Blackness is a Grammy® Award-winning group directed by Gary Hines since 1971. It has consistently performed and proclaimed the music, culture and history of African-Americans to audiences all over the world. From jazz and blues to rock & roll, R&B, gospel, spirituals, hip-hop, reggae and soul, this group colors each and every “sound of blackness” with uplifting messages of hope, unity, love and peace for all humankind–and then works passionately to achieve it.

In 2012, the “The Sound of Blackness” CD won a 2012 NAACP Image Award for Best World Music Recording. The group has also won Soul Train Award, International Time For Peace Award, seven Stellar Awards, the International Dance Music Awards, was nominated for an Emmy Award and five NAACP Image Awards. The group’s new self-titled CD “The Sounds of Blackness” and first single “Fly Again” are inspiring the world and a new generation once again. 

Sounds of Blackness has performed benefit concerts for many organizations and conducts master classes and workshops. They have performed on the soundtracks of the films “Batman,” “Demolition Man,” “Panther,” “House Party II,” “The Posse,” “Down in the Delta,” “Moses in Egypt,” “John Henry,” “First Kid,” “Mo’ Money,” “Justice,” “First Sunday,” “Precious,” and “The Apostle.”
