Excellent concert! Birds of Chicago never disappoint! Not only are they amazing singer songwriters but they are wonderful people. You can really feel the love radiating from them.
Wonderfully made, up close and personal concert 💜💜💜
It was a great gig, highlight was the last track where they shared the microphone.

This was not a concert. This was being invited to witness collaborative, genius, soulful artists make magic happen. What a privilege to see these amazing front-women — and the generous, talented musicians who accompanied them — ignite each other with their art and passion. Together they gave voice to deeply personal and widely resonate messages that translate time and culture, yet are so relevant and important for today. So intimate, authentic, empathetic... and somehow still joyous. And the music!!! When I wasn’t grinning, or holding back an “amen”, it was because I’d just had my breath taken away.
