Black Highlights from the Royal Wedding

Bishop Michael Curry captured the world’s attention with a powerful address. The Chicago-born bishop spoke passionately about the power of love, quoting Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

‘Stand by Me’ performed by Karen Gibson and The Kingdom Choir. A beautiful rendition of the song originally recorded by Ben E. King in 1961.

19-year-old Sheku Kanneh-Mason performed three selections. The British cellist won the 2016 BBC Young Musician of the Year award; the first for a black musician.
