This globe-trotting ensemble proves that praise knows no borders. With a history spanning more than 60 years, this Dakar, Senegal-based choir infuses American gospel spirituals with the styles and traditions of Pan-African music. The 15-member chorus and four traditional Senegalese drummers perform standards like "Amazing Grace" and "The Storm is Passing Over" while proving that praise is international by singing in each of their home country's four national languages. The choir, now led by music director Ambroise N'Diong, was founded in 1950 by UNESCO Ambassador Artist for Peace Julien Jouga as a means of creating harmony between Senegal's Muslim and Catholic cultures.

Quotes & Highlights
“A nimble escapist comedy … sweet, tasty and inebriating. …The radiantly sentimental ending might have been concocted by Frank Capra.” The New York Times
“A sweet-tempered tale … a charming comedy about friendship, the future and an obsessive nostalgia for children’s television shows of the past.” —Associated Press
“A sentimental fable cloaked in flip, funny dialogue, with tart one-liners to offset the sugar.” —Wall Street Journal
Whatever became of Tamara Tomorrow? In the early seventies, this local television host, in her antennae and space suit, made cheery predictions of how exciting the future was going to be. Her sudden disappearance from the public eye was one of the great mysteries of the Philadelphia area. Three fans of Tamara, all grown up and disenchanted with the “future” as she predicted, decide to go in search of this “Delaware Valley Greta Garbo.” What they find along the way teaches them more about themselves than they really thought they could know.
