The Spirituals Reimagine the Hymn "Tis So Sweet"


The Spirituals continue their journey of reimagining hymns with their newest release, "Tis So Sweet," a standout track from their new Hymns project coming in October 2024. The Hymns project was born out of the desire to breathe new life into timeless songs, bridging the gap between the past and the present and telling God's endless story in a fresh manner. These hymns have transcended generations, carrying the message of God's love and hope.

"Tis So Sweet" is a joyful and uplifting song that explores the meaning of trusting in Jesus. It reminds us of the importance of placing our faith in Him at all times, through every season of life. The Spirituals's rendition invites a new generation to fall in love with these sacred words and melodies, fostering a deeper connection with God.

The Spirituals were formed in October 2020 as a creative response to the murder of George Floyd and the injustice surrounding it. Music Artist and Creative Director, Junior Garr, began by reimagining spiritual anthems to commemorate black history, music, and culture along with Arranger/Conductor Marsha Morrison.

Junior Garr explains: "The senseless murder of George Floyd in the midst of the pandemic felt like the world was turned upside down - and those two things sparked a really long journey for me of processing the tragic worldwide events."

The Spirituals' landmark project was a collaboration with TBNUK, producing the nowviral Black History Project together. Perhaps best-known for their viral hit "Wade In The Water" which has had 16M views on YouTube to date. Since its inception during the pandemic, The Spirituals released three EPs and performed in emblematic UK venues including Lambeth Palace, St Paul's Cathedral, and Wembley Arena, as well as the 2022 Olympics. Recent performances include the iconic Union Chapel and Greenbelt Festival's 50th. The Spirituals have won a number of prestigious awards, such as Choir of the Year from Step FWD Awards, Premier Gospel Awards, and The GX Awards. The Spirituals' repertoire crosses generations with relevant sounds and harmonies such as their upcoming Hymns project. This is exemplified by Labi Siffre's inspiring classic "Something Inside So Strong," which has had 2.4M views to date with the aim of inspiring people to take action.

"Music has so much power - the very force of nature. Music has the ability to transform all languages and cultures and if we put the message in the music then the world can get to hear it and experience it." - Junior Garr.
