The Life and Music of James Brown from 1951-1968
Remembering James will Headline the St Hope's Juneteenth 40 acres Block Party! (June 19)
Remembering James, a 90 minute musical tells the story of The Godfather of Soul, with thought provoking narration. From his early days first starting out and spanning nearly two decades of what would become a monumental career, we see how a divided country, the growing Civil Rights movement and the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. shaped James Brown's work. A eight-piece band accompanies, bringing the passion of Mr. Brown's music alive while offering a message of hope to a grief stricken nation looking for a moment of healing and celebration.
