I put on my purple choir robe and waited as the strains of an increasingly exuberant performance of “Oh Happy Day” began. I joined in with Dr. Bobby Jones and the Nashville Super Choir as their voices rose in giving joyful praise.
Singing with the Choir is just one of several interactive exhibits at the National Museum of African-American Music. You can also produce your own R&B or rap beat, test our your dancing and DJ skills and build a blues song.
The six galleries are dedicated to exploring the genres of music created by African-Americans, from gospel to hip-hop.
