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.

About the Ticket Supplier: The Music Box Theater
The Music Box Theater’s mission is to provide audiences with a unique mix of live popular music and original comedy in a relaxed “cabaret style” environment. Well-known Houston performers Rebekah Dahl and Brad Scarborough developed the idea for The Music Box Theater in late 2010 as an alternative to the standard fare of Houston performance venues. The concept is to create a space and production that would feel welcoming for all Houstonians, while offering them a mix of music from across the decades. Once the concept was in place, Dahl and Scarborough teamed with fellow performers Luke Wrobel and Cay Taylor to bring their idea to life. In addition to live music, each show also features original comedy sketches.
