African American spirituals, like Wade in the Water and I’m On My Way to Canaan’s Land, are a critical part of the United States’ musical heritage. Gospel singer Michelle Mayne-Graves and the Lifeline Quartet use their soulful voices to celebrate these songs in a powerful performance that channels centuries of struggle and perseverance.
In honor of Michelle’s work with homeless veterans in Los Angeles and 4th of July weekend, we invite veterans and active service members to attend this performance for free. Go to Buy Tickets and use the code AMERICA.

For Lifeline’s debut album in 2019m they chose If I can Help Somebody to be the opening track. This song not only honors Harriet Tubman, but reveals Michelle’s generous heart as well. Michelle lives what she sings. Harriet Tubman is one of the better known heroes who escaped slavery herself and then worked as a “conductor” on the Underground Railroad, helping subsequent groups of people flee to the North.
