The Mississippi Arts Hour | Harvey Lee Watkins Jr.

Larry Morrisey interviews Harvey Lee Watkins Jr., leader of the Canton Spirituals, a well known gospel group that will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2019 Governor’s Arts Awards. For more than four decades, the Canton Spirituals have mixed blues and R&B with traditional gospel, creating a sound that’s all their own. Demand for their live performances has taken them to venues across the United States and abroad.
