Good Noise and Maureen will then join forces in a tribute to Aretha Franklin with a Christmas arrangement of the gospel song, Walk In the Light, featured on both her 1987 gospel album and at her funeral earlier this year. To complete the set list, the choir will perform the vibrant and joyful Amen, written by a pioneer of gospel music, Jester Hairston.
Good Noise will also premiere a hand-clapping, foot-stomping arrangement of Everybody Knows it’s Christmas by gospel great Israel Houghton. Returning to the concert stage after thrilling audiences last year will be the Staple Singers classic Who Took the Merry out of Christmas and Joy To The World, in an arrangement made famous by Whitney Houston in the 1996 film The Preacher’s Wife.
Accompanying Good Noise and Washington in this highly anticipated holiday event will be the outstanding musical stylings of: Michael Kalanj (Hammond B3), Laurence Mollerup (bass), Elliot Polsky (drums), Ingrid Stitt (saxophones), and Artistic Director Gail Suderman (piano).
