The Netflix Voices of Fire choir is celebrating the power of togetherness this Thanksgiving with an uplifting promo spot performing “Lift Every Voice & Sing.”
As our nation begins to heal after four years of division and a post election full of voter suppression tactics, I couldn’t think of a better song for a diverse choir to sing that speaks to the times we find ourselves living in.
Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us
Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us
Facing the rising sun of our new day begun
Let us march on ’til victory is won
Voices of Fire is streaming now on Netflix and follows Pharrell Williams’ hometown community as it builds one of the world’s most inspiring gospel choirs. Pharrell’s uncle and a well-respected musical genius in the area, Bishop Ezekiel Williams and his core team of influential gospel leaders will venture out into Hampton Roads to find undiscovered talent. With the belief that diverse backstories can give their collective voice a greater meaning, the Bishop and his team will be searching for people of all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds.
