The Night Before Christmas: A Musical Fantasy
The Sounds of Blackness are by now so synonymous with soul music and the holidays that the film Precious placed their 1992 hit "Soul Holidays" in the '80s—as timeless as comfort food. No matter, the joyous, ever-shifting 40-singer Minneapolis ensemble has been around for 40 years under the leadership of Gary Hines, with a multi-Grammy-winning run beginning in the '90s and a new album last year, the gospel-tinged, Obama-election-inspired The 3rd Gift: Story, Song & Spirit. Tonight's family-friendly multicultural holiday musical revue (complete with Rudolph the Rappin' Reindeer) is one more reason it's good to be home for the holidays.
