The 16 mixed voices of The St. Louis African Chorus bring us the US premier of a cappella pieces (sometimes with the accompaniment of African drums of various kinds) written by composer Ikoli Harcourt-Whyte. These spiritual songs are accompanied by various narrators who tell the story of this deeply religious Christian man who found God while overcoming 34 years of suffering as a leper. 14 songs, some examples are "Chebe Mo Nna" (Guide Me Father), "Onyinye Chuku" (God's Gift), "Tikuenu Jehova" (Praise Jehova), "Obu Chuku" (It Is God), and "Kp' Ekpere" (Pray). This is a moving, inspirational story of a very special man, perfectly accompanied by his wonderful music!
