Religions and Music Come Together on 'Higher and Higher'

Monday, November 14, 2011

For as long as there's been music, seemingly mismatched artists of different religious backgrounds have teamed up on songs in unexpected ways. On the album "Higher and Higher," all the music is written by the late songwriter, Rabbi Schlomo Carlebach, who famously composed over five thousand Jewish songs during his life. And they're performed by two primary voices: one is that of his daughter, Neshama Carlebach. But the other voices are more surprising, it’s the Green Pastures Baptist Church Choir.

Neshama Carlebach and Reverend Roger Hambrick, who is the pastor of Green Pastures Baptist Church, talk more about this unique collaboration.
