Road To Freedom, Theby Teresa Jennings
This original gospel rock tune would be a wonderful performance piece for your older students. For younger students, using only the unison melody will work very nicely, too. The song includes three parts and a featured soloist - all optional, of course.
We have included two versions of this song on the recording - a short version and a long version. The short version follows the music as written. The long version extends the music by adding an eight measure a cappella phrase. If you have students who enjoy a challenge, once they hear this, they will be compelled to perform it this way! The song starts with just a soloist and slowly builds as it goes along. It peaks when all parts plus solo descant are singing, then winds back down to the end. You might also consider doing the piece with just a trio, quartet, or other small ensemble. In any case, it's sure to be a very moving performance. (from Music K-8, Vol. 12, No. 3)
