“Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing” Virtual Choir Information and Track

This year’s Gospel Choir and Unity Concert will look a little different. Instead of our typical concert, we will create a CCGC (Columbia Community Gospel Choir) and CKGC (Columbia Kids’ Gospel Choir) highlights video, premiering the first-ever community-wide virtual choir featuring the call to action anthem “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing.” The highlights video will feature picture and musical highlights from past Unity concerts, recent interviews of singers and musicians, and, of course, the community-wide virtual choir presentation of “Lift Ev’ry Voice.”

We want your voice to be heard! Participation is simple and can be done as a soloist or small group. All ages welcome, and open to anyone interested in mid-Missouri or beyond. Instructions to submit are simple and can be found below. Our hope with this project is to unite our community through song, spreading awareness of the long, painful struggle Black individuals have faced and affirming their rightful place in society because CAAM knows Black Lives Matter, too.

The recording will be released in February 2021 to pay tribute to Black History Month.
