This Gospel House masterpiece addresses morality, spiritually, and the community that Rennie Harris grew up in. Raised a Catholic, Rennie often attended his neighbors’ Baptist church which inspired his love for gospel music. This work is set to the brilliant and overwhelming sounds of a live choir whose soulful singing moves the audience to tears. Joshua, the lead character of LIFTED, loses his parents in a car accident and moves in with his uncle and aunt. Quickly he finds himself in a precarious position when he decides to run away and join a gang. Forced to make hard decisions by facing down his demons, he eventually returns to his family and the church.
