“When George Floyd was brutally murdered, many artists were looking for a way to respond to the racial unrest. DIDN’T MY LORD DELIVER DANIEL- The Anthem Spiritual was developed as a response to the injustices stemming from racially motivated acts. It was a collective expression of solidarity to signify that our strength, resilience, and faith would continue to sustain us–Black America–as it had in times past. We continue to reiterate, “WE WILL NOT BE BROKEN!” . . .and what a powerful expression for this message to come from men of strength.” Andrew Horton, Founder of the Hudson Heights Project

“There is a texture that exists in black voices that’s uniquely undeniable. It’s like a finely woven quilt of spirit, emotions, sound, story, art, AND history. When I listen to this I hear generations and generations of JOY, PAIN, SUNSHINE, and RAIN. Saturday night blues, Sunday service, and Sunday dinner. Well done!!!!” – Donald Lawrence, Grammy Award-winning Producer/Songwriter
