Let Your Light Shine!
With excitement, passion, humor and joy, Lea Gilmore (vocalist) and Marc
Borms (pianist) take you on a musical journey of the music of Black
Americans. Spirituals, Gospel, Blues, Jazz, Hip Hop — African American
music has greatly influenced music around the world.

It has been said that "Lea Gilmore's voice is a gift from her
soul to our ears...."
Born and still residing in the United States, Lea grew up in the southern
African American music tradition. A descendant of those many Africans
brought to the Americas on slave ships, she continues to sing the songs of
freedom and struggle, love and hope to a new generation. In the U.S.,
France, Belgium, The U.K. and beyond, Lea has thrilled audiences of young
people from elementary, secondary and university age, bringing them to
their feet with excitement.

She and Belgian pianist Marc Borms have been collaborating for over a
decade. A collaboration that personifies all of our common ground,
transcending race and culture to convey our oneness – our common
humanity. They continue to successfully tell these musical stories that are
inspirational to all.

So, get ready to tap your feet, clap your hands, free your soul, embrace
tolerance, and enjoy a moment of African-American roots music up-close
and personal.  Insightful and pure fun!
