Description: Learn what it takes to be a member of an ensemble group and experience the power of singing for yourself.
Soul runs deep through the harmony-rich gospel sound of Take 6, and each of the singers in this 10-time Grammy Award–winning a capella sextet possess powerful, versatile voices. They channel the uplifting spirit of doo-wop groups from the 1950s, even as they throw down fresh beats that call to mind the latest R&B and hip-hop. The group has recorded and performed with some of jazz's greatest legends, such as Quincy Jones, Ella Fitzgerald, and Stevie Wonder.
Venue Description: The world-famous Apollo Theater is so much more than a historic landmark -- it is a source of pride and a symbol of the brilliance of American artistic accomplishment. The Apollo Theater is considered the bastion of African-American culture and achievement.
