Fisk Jubilee Singers

Organized in 1871, the world-renowned Fisk Jubilee Singers have played an important role in introducing and sustaining the tradition of negro spiritual and black American religious music to the world. That music created the paradigm later followed by the blues, jazz, rock ‘n’ roll, hip-hop, and the many styles of music derived from the African cultural diaspora in the United States, thus permanently altering the course of the world’s music. Composed of Fisk University students annually selected for the quality and unique harmonious compatibility of their voices, the Fisk Jubilee Singers was awarded the National Medal of Arts, the nation’s highest artistic honor, in 2008.
