Sweet Honey in the Rock is a performance ensemble rooted in African American history and culture and known for meshing its finely honed a cappella, world, gospel, and folk roots with elements of hip hop, jazz, and rhythm & blues. The ensemble educates, entertains, and empowers its audience and community through the dynamic vehicles of a cappella singing and American Sign Language interpretation for the deaf and hearing impaired.

Sweet Honey in the Rock currently consists of members Carol Maillard, Louise Robinson, Nitanju Bolade Casel, Aisha Kahlil, and featured musician Romeir Mendez on upright acoustic bass and electric bass.  With a history spanning over four decades of distinguished service, Sweet Honey in the Rock has created positive, loving, and socially conscious message music that pertains to spiritual fortification, and has consistently taken an activist stance toward making this planet a better place for all in which to live.

Sign-language interpreted.
