Personal Quote:

[on John P. Kee]: I love John P. Kee. This song illustrates the classic power of what gospel is and conveys that there is a God and that no matter what is going on, you will be alright. Chris Davis did a great arrangement on the song which just drives you into a higher place. The chord changes just pull you up and hopefully Phil and I do too. See more »

Trivia:

Recorded "Lift Every Voice and Sing," which was entered into the Congressional Record and is now the official African-American national anthem. See more »
