On Sunday, January 26, 2020, Temple Emanu-El, Providence, will present Singing the Dream 2020, a special afternoon musical tribute to the life and legacy of civil rights leader and American hero, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  
 
The Singing the Dream Chorus, a community chorus of singers from amateur to professional, will perform a concert of African-American spirituals and Jewish hymns. The concert will also include the East Coast premiere of “I Felt My Legs Were Praying,” a song composed by New York-based Cantor Gerald Cohen reflecting on the historic 1965 march from Selma to Montgomery by Dr. King and 600 civil rights demonstrators, including the late Rabbi Eli Bohnen of Temple Emanu-El. 
 
Featured guest artists for Singing the Dream are members of the Sing Harlem Choir, an award-winning and influential force in the New York gospel scene. Under the leadership of Directors Ahmaya Knoelle Higginsen and Elijah Ahmad Lewis, the Sing Harlem Choir has become a resounding force in gospel music, performing at many prestigious venues across America including The Congressional Black Caucus, the Grammy Awards and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
 
Vy Higginsen, noted author, playwright, Emmy-Award winning TV personality and founder of the Mama Foundation for the Arts and the Sing Harlem Choir, will be the featured guest speaker.  Senior Rabbi Michael Fel of Temple Emanu-El will offer the invocation and Rev. Rebecca Spencer of the Central Congregational Church, Providence will give the benediction.
 
Singing the Dream 2020 will be held from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Temple Emanu-El located at 99 Taft Avenue, Providence, R.I. The ticketed concert is open to the public and all are invited to attend.  Tickets are $18 in advance online at www.singingthedream2020.eventbrite.com  and $25 at the door.
