For four decades, gospel artist Richard Smallwood has been one of the most popular inspirational artists in the music business, with classic tunes such as Total Praise, Center of My Joy and I Love the Lord. His songs have been recorded by Whitney Houston, Destiny’s Child, Kelly Price, Gerald Levert, American Idol’s Ruben Studdard and many others throughout of the gospel world. Even the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, recorded Smallwood’s Faithful.
In addition to working with students enrolled in Prof. Braxton Shelley’s The Gospel Imagination class in the Music Department, Smallwood will take place in a public event that features him in an evening of conversation with Shelley and in song with the Kuumba Singers of Harvard College, Inner Strength Gospel Choir of Boston University and Tufts University Third Day Gospel Choir -- culminating in a performance with all three choirs and Smallwood in a rendition of his signature song Total Praise. The event, which is FREE and open to the public, will take place 7:30 p.m. Monday, November 19 at Sanders Theatre. Learn more here.
