Join musician Janet for this Vocal Listening Challenge!

Born out of the dreadful days of slavery, this inspiring genre of music can be both emotional and uplifting. There are three examples below from the USA, South Africa and the UK – can you hear any differences between them? Which is your favourite?

Watch Janet’s video below, then listen to ‘O Happy Day’ to complete your Listening Challenge! You will see there are two additional videos below – these are the extra songs that Janet mentions at the end of her video.
