American Music Comes Alive with mezzo-soprano, Cheryse McLeod Lewis


10/31/2016 – by Cheryse McLeod Lewis

I created “Then Sings My Soul” because I wanted to present some of my favorite American music: spirituals, musical theatre, and jazz. I also wanted all of the songs on the program to be uplifting and inspirational in nature. My hope is that when the audience leaves the show, they feel refreshed, happy, joyful, and encouraged. I have been performing this program all over the country since 2012. I have performed it for concert series, performing arts festivals, colleges, universities, and churches. When people ask me what my favorite favorite songs on the program are, I always answer all of them. I spent a lot of time selecting some of the most familiar and well-loved American favorites for this show. Some highlights include “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” “Climb Every Mountain,” “Ride On, King Jesus,” “Every Time I Feel The Spirit,” “Smile,” and “Unforgettable.”

I hope you can join me this coming Friday. Then Sings My Soul is an inspiring evening of great American music. You will love all of the popular Broadway favorites, beloved jazz standards, and stunning spirituals that you will hear. This entertaining show consistently delights audiences of all ages and is a concert that is sure to satisfy the soul!
