Catalogue Number: QLDVD7183
UPC: 760137718390

Today America's music does what it has always done, bring people together. In American music every aspect of life, ethnicity, and culture is merged, mixed, and highlighted. The rich diversity of American culture and life is reflected in its lively beat-filled rhythms. American music is the story of the country, a reflection of a nation alive with change, filled with curiosity and led by hope and excitement.

America's music legacy, be it Blues, Jazz, Country, Rock, R&B or Folk are the songs and artists who have a special power to express what words alone cannot: hopes, fears, dreams, love, hate, anger, pride, aspirations and disappointments. Because songs span the breadth of human experience, they are uniquely able to communicate across time and space the beliefs and ideas held by their composers, performers and listeners.

From reggae to rumba, jazz to juju, Gospel is now expressed in as many ways as there are music genres. The only consistent thread is that it carries a Christian "good news" message and remains defined by the influence of Christian expression in black music.

America's Music Legacy showcase the musical legends performing the songs that continue to attract and entice the whole world, because they truly are the best of all that is America.
