“I’m super excited about the upcoming ‘We Shall Overcome’ tour,” says Sneed. “Last year was our first time going out, but now we are well prepared for the rigorous schedule and vast amount of travel required. The best part of this tour is how we will be able to touch the lives of so many different people through the lyrics and messages in the music.”
Joining Sneed on tour will be an ensemble of multi-genre vocalists and instrumentalists, including Chenee Campbell (vocalist), Anitra McKinney (vocalist), Alicia Peters-Jordan (vocalist), Linny Smith (vocalist), Arthur Sutton (bass), Marquéz Cassidy (keyboards) and other musicians and special guest artists to be announced.
