Publisher's Description

It should not surprise us when we see God use the common things of life--snow, streetlights, a rented suit, a mop--to accomplish the incredible. But it should inspire us. From the depths of near obscurity at the turn of the last century, a young African American man rose to fame through those ordinary things--listening intently out in the snow as a child to beautiful music in an elegant hall, listening to his grandfather sing the old slave songs as he lit the streetlamps, sweating through a rented suit during an audition for a musical scholarship, a chance meeting with a musical legend as he was mopping the halls of his school. Through the seemingly insignificant pieces of life, God led Harry T. Burleigh along the path to fame and through him preserved the songs that would form the basis of a uniquely American music.

Now Harry T. Burleigh, once world-renowned for his career as a beautiful baritone soloist, an arranger of Negro Spirituals, and a composer in his own right, is lifted once more out of obscurity by Craig von Buseck. This inspiring true story will take readers back in time to Southern plantations and Northern boom towns, to minstrel shows and soaring sanctuaries, and into the heart of a man who never suspected that God had destined him for greatness.

    Warmly written. Gives a real human side to what slavery meant to many. I found it a bit confusing the way the author jumped from "the present" to the father and grandfather's stories, but it was a great approach to telling the story. Gained an understanding and appreciation for Dvorak and his music. Would have been nice to have had more details of Burley's later life.

    The story line was great, but learned a lot that I didn't know. A very good book. Every Christian should read it to gain information on how Christian Hymns and others came into being. Passed it on for others to read and one lady said "That was an excellent book." My thoughts exactly.
