Rate this:
"Before there was Marian Anderson, there was Roland Hayes--the first world-renowned African-American classical vocalist. Born the son of a slave in Georgia, Roland discovered his voice as a young boy singing spirituals in church. BREATH & IMAGINATION is a musical play that chronicles the amazing journey of this pioneer from the plantation in Georgia to singing before kings and queens in Europe. At the heart of the story is Roland's loving, yet complex relationship with his mother--his Angel Mo'. Employing spirituals and classical music, BREATH & IMAGINATION is an inspirational exploration of one man's determination to be an Artist despite seemingly insurmountable odds."-- Provided by publisher
