Now in it's fourth decade, the renowned female African-American a cappella group Sweet Honey in the Rock shows off a new four-voice line-up that continues it's ongoing evolution. Their first first studio recording in nine years, #LoveInEvolution's breathtaking layers of voices often carry a strong sense of social and ecological urgency on original songs such as "Second Line Blues," which challenges the current eruption of racial violence, and "Oh, Sankofa," an angry summation of the last century of historical injustice against blacks. But there are also uplifting songs of life's positives ("This Place Inside Where I Can Rest," "A Prayer for the World: Song 23," and the delightful single "IDK, But I'm LOL") and rearranged traditional and cover songs relevant to the CD's theme of improving individual and global existence while enduring the strains of daily life. Now in their 42nd year, Sweet Honey in the Rock has toured from Australia to Zimbabwe, performed in the White House at the request of President and First Lady Obama, accrued numerous honors, and established itself as an inspiring, empowering musical force worldwide.
