Park Forest, IL-(ENEWSPF)- Freedom Hall, in cooperation with the band Better Together, is proud to announce its first in-house streaming concert production of 2021: Songs of Hope and Healing: Soul, Jazz, & Gospel Favorites. The show premieres Friday, March 19 at 7 pm and will be available on-demand Saturday, March 20, and Sunday, March 21, streaming on the Stellar platform.

Better Together is a powerhouse group of top-level musical souls on a journey to unite people around amazing music and good vibes. Featuring vocalist Bruce A. Henry (“bell-pure voice”—Miami Herald), guitarist Henry Johnson (“impressive”—L.A. Times), pianist Jo Ann Daugherty (“★★★★”—Downbeat), acoustic bassist Joshua Ramos (Ramsey Lewis), and drummer Ryan Bennett (Jersey Boys), the band taps into the universal power of music to bring people together during these times when we need more love and understanding.
