Singer DeVonne Gardner and Houston Ebony Opera Guild Chorus director and pianist Roland Carter visited Houston Public Media’s Geary Studio to record the song “Come Sunday” from Duke Ellington’s first Sacred Concert (and the album Black, Brown and Beige). They performed the piece at this year’s African-American Music Gala which took place Sunday, March 1st, at Christ Church Cathedral downtown.

Gardner and Carter also talked with Houston Public Media’s St.John Flynn.
