Carolina Chocolate Drops, I have to say that I discovered their music back in 2010 and I thought that what they did, how they performed and with the instruments they performed with was amazing. Their music is pure and historical, very genuine. They are very a very talented group of musicians and seeing them in person was great. Love their music, I feel so blessed not to be stuck on just one genre of music and that I can stand to listen to almost anything and enjoy it.
Thank You Carolina Chocolate Drops for this one of a kind opportunity. Had a great time. I would also like to thank those who were responsible for bringing them to our small town and University. Go UMHB

I and my son enjoyed this very very much. He got to talk to the actors on the Sunday showing and was very excited about it.

I did not agree with anything she taught. She tried too hard to explain the Bible away, saying that they were only for that time for those people. That is wrong.

PHENOMENAL show but I want to say that since this is an FAE event and since STUDENTS ARE REQUIRED to attend these types of things then they should always have first priority to the show.

it was boring. I thought it was a talk but it was monologue and it wasn't even his own story. :(
