Albert McNeil Jubilee Singers
The Albert McNeil Jubilee Singers, a traveling company of 12 to 18, a resident group of 29, have garnered international acclaim and focused worldwide attention on the vast body of folk music termed "African-American."
Forty-seven years ago (1968) the Singers undertook their first European tour. Today, after 18 sold-out European tours, 12 tours of the United States and Canada, tours of the Middle and Far East, Africa and South America, they are among the most honored singing ensembles in the world. They were selected three times to serve the U.S. State Department and USIS Cultural Exchange Program in areas of the world, known in those days as "behind the Iron Curtain," including East Germany, Hungary, Romania, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, Iran, India, North and West Africa, Egypt, and the United Arab Emirates.
