Freedom Singer

A Project: Humanity Production
Co-created by Khari Wendell McClelland and Andrew Kushnir with Jodie Martinson 
Featuring Khari Wendell McClelland, Noah Walker and Tanika Charles
Directed by Andrew Kushnir

FREEDOM SINGER is the new theatrical concert inspired by the remarkable journey of singer-songwriter Khari Wendell McClelland (as featured on CBC's The National and Tapestry). In 2015, JUNO-nominated McClelland retraced the steps of his great-great-great grandmother Kizzy and – using contemporary styles like hip hop, funk and soul – personalized the songs that likely accompanied her and thousands of others as they escaped U.S. slavery. In sharing this music, Khari is brought face to face with his own "unrecorded" heritage, and the realities and myths of one of our quintessential historic narratives: the Underground Railroad. 

Proudly sponsored by TD.
