"elegantly fuses spirituality [and] dance." – San Francisco Chronicle
"It's the second time Fischer and King — a celebrated choreographer and the company's lauded founder and artistic director — have collaborated... 'For anyone that doesn't believe in miracles, please go listen to Lisa Fischer,' says King." – C Magazine
“not only one of the most superlative all-around singers in the world but also the most artistically, intellectually and emotionally satisfying female performer working today. Period.” – Minneapolis Star Tribune
