More than a tightly orchestrated collection of a cappella singers, Naturally 7 has coined the phrase “vocal play,” as they transform their voices into actual human instruments, effortlessly producing music of any genre.


Their vocal choreography is so perfectly interwoven that they compelled the musical maestro himself, Quincy Jones, to declare them, “the best a cappella group in the world!” They have sung to standing ovations throughout the world and shared the stage with Herbie Hancock, Diana Ross, Gladys Knight, ColdPlay, Lionel Richie, and Stevie Wonder, and have also traveled to 25 countries during three world tours with Michael Bublé.


For the members of Naturally 7 (“Ricky” Lee Ricardo Cort, Rod Eldridge, Kelvin “Kelz” Mitchell, Sean Simmonds, Dwight Stewart, Roger Thomas, and Warren Thomas,) it’s a privilege to do what they love and bring such joy to the hearts of their fans each and every night.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Winner of both the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Play, Clybourne Park is a razor-sharp satire about the politics of race. In response to Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun, playwright Bruce Norris set up Clybourne Park as a pair of scenes that bookend Hansberry’s piece. These two scenes, fifty years apart, are both set in the same modest bungalow on Chicago’s northwest side that features at the center of A Raisin in the Sun. The first scene takes place before and the second scene takes place after the events of A Raisin in the Sun. In 1959, Russ and Bev are moving out to the suburbs after the tragic death of their son. Inadvertently, they have sold their house to the neighborhood’s first black family. Fifty years later in 2009, the roles are reversed when a young white couple buys the lot in what is now a predominantly black neighborhood, signaling a new wave of gentrification. In both instances, a community showdown takes place, pitting race against real estate with this home as the battleground.
