Derek Minor brought home a very under-the-radar Grammy for his contribution to Celebrating Fisk. The album is by the Fisk Jubilee Singers. The rapper was featured on the song “Glory/Stranger” which also featured Shannon Sanders.
The Grammy was for Best Roots Gospel Album.
The album, which is more than 150 years in the making, is a collection of 12 songs that beautifully represent and communicate the powerful and vibrant history of Fisk University and its Fisk Jubilee Singers®. It features the group from the stage of Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium, with guest appearances by Ruby Amanfu, Keb’ Mo’, and CeCe Winans, among others.
“This product is the result of work done by wonderful people who love Fisk University and Fisk Jubilee Singers®,” shares the album’s Musical Director, and Musical Director of the Fisk Jubilee Singers®, Dr. Paul Kwami. “It was a great honor for me to collaborate with all of them, especially with Shannon Sanders. The beauty of the compilation lies in the variety and high quality of music, which will forever celebrate Fisk University!”
