"Awake, My Soul" is a feature documentary that explores the history, music, and traditions of Sacred Harp singing, the oldest surviving American music.
Every summer, my family attends the Memorial Day service in the church where my grandmother grew up. This Memorial Service is always followed by dinner on the grounds and an all day singing. Even as a child, I found the voices of the people from this small country church to be powerful and thought provoking. When I saw the trailer for "Awake My Soul" all of those memories came back.
