About this show

Serenade the World, featuring the music and words of Oscar Brown, Jr., is a lively retrospective of the man they called the Grandfather of Rap.

His last song, "Serenade the World," was written with Genovis Albright as the title number of this musical retrospective of his life and work. Singer and keyboardist Albright is joined by the Oscar Brown Trio in this joyous and moving celebration.
