Street Corner Symphony

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
Street Corner Symphony is an awesome a cappella release, a soaring assembly of songs that slide across the time-line, evoking the 1950s and the 1970s with equal ease, commercial R&B and the most devout gospel music, and even the commercial pop and singer/songwriter influences surrounding them "Medley," which includes "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother" and "You've Got a Friend".
