Producers for this project include current directors of the Howard Gospel Choir and alumni of Howard University, Reginald Golden and Darrell Brown, alongside Kevin Golden.

The Howard Gospel Choir (HGC) was formed over 40 years ago in 1968 by a body of students, alumni and community members “dedicated to using the gift of music to spread the good news of Jesus Christ,” according to its website.

This choir has produced very notable artists over the years including Grammy Award winners Richard Smallwood and Coré Cotton (member of Sounds of Blackness); Elbernita “Twinkie” Clark, of the Clark Sisters and the R&B star Ángela Winbush.

The choir is not just known locally, having traveled all over the world with trips to the Republic of Georgia, Slovakia, Croatia, Italy, Denmark, Sweden and Ukraine.
