Video Premiere: Kronos and Meklit Perform “The President Sang Amazing Grace”

Kronos is honored to share this new performance video of “The President Sang Amazing Grace” with our good friend Meklit. Filmed at Bing Concert Hall, this song pays homage to the moment Barack Obama sang “Amazing Grace” during the funeral of state senator and pastor Clementa Pinckney on June 26, 2015 in Charleston, South Carolina.

Written by Zoe Mulford and arranged by Jacob Garchik, this song appears on our recently released Smithsonian Folkways Recordings album Long Time Passing, and will be included in upcoming digital programs presented by our wonderful partners, Stanford Live and CAP UCLA.
