The Roots Gospel Voices of Mississippi choir was founded by Vasti Jackson in 1998 and is a dynamic, soul lifting, live inspiring vocal ensemble presenting glorious gospels and sanctified spirituals.
In today’s musical world of synthesizers, sampling, lip-sync, autotune, and pantomime, nothing conveys the emotion of the human experience more powerfully, and clearly than the human voice. Roots Gospel Voices Of Mississippi brings to the world stage the enduring triumph of the human spirit as experienced in the livelihood of African American church culture.
From “field Hollers” to the call, and response of the elders in rural churches—still practiced in many areas of Mississippi—Roots Gospel Voices builds from this tradition to deliver the raw emotional energy as felt in prayer meetings, Sunday morning services, and Soul saving revivals. This dynamic gospel vessel comprised of vocalists of extraordinary, God-given talent that have been nurtured, developed, and refined in the Baptist, Catholic, Methodist, and Sanctified Churches of Mississippi. Listen, and be blessed as your spirits are lifted, and your life inspired by the glorious praise of Roots Gospel Voices Of Mississippi.
