REJOICE & SHOUT covers the 200 year history of African-American Christianity, featuring the legends of Gospel music, including The Staple Singers, The Clara Ward Singers, The Dixie Hummingbirds, and Sister Rosetta Tharpe. Culled from hundreds of hours of music, tracing the evolution of gospel music through its many styles: the spirituals and early hymns, the four-part harmony-based quartets, the integration of blues and swing, the emergence of 'soul,' and the blending of rap and hip-hop elements. It connects the history of African-American culture with gospel as it first impacted popular culture at large and captures so much of what is special about this music and African-American Christianity.

Great documentary of gospel music. You don't have to be religious to enjoy the music. Some of it is truly powerful and you can see how it inspires the performer. From early quartets to rap artists - God hears it all! Great footage of Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Mahalia Jackson, the Dixie Hummingbirds, The Five Blind Boys, The Staple Singers.
