The Psalm Full of Soul project is a groundbreaking collection of original songs in English and Hebrew for Psalms which journeys through new sounds in jazz, gospel, classical and funk. It combines the talents of three internationally renowned artists: jazz musician Vince Evans, gospel singer Vanessa R. Williams and Jewish liturgical composer Norma Brooks. Within this diversity of cultures and traditions they create a rich tapestry of soulful sounds.
