A few weeks ago, the music industry lost one of the greatest names in gospel music. Pastor Andrae Crouch brought secular and gospel music together and was responsible for the success of names like the Winans and the Hawkins Family. He received the prestigious honorary doctorate from Berklee, where professor Jetro da Silva had the privilege and honor to work with him and write several songs together, such as "He Does All Things Well."

This tribute concert is a collaboration by several Berklee faculty who were musically influenced by this iconic artist.

Born in Montevideo, Uruguay, Nando Michelin came to Boston to study at Berklee, where he is now an assistant professor in the Piano Department. He also has taught at Tufts University and Longy Music School and lectured in Spain, Uruguay, Brazil, South Africa, and around the United States, to name a few places. His latest CD, Juana de America, features songs to poems by Juana de Ibarbourou, the Four Corners String Quartet, and the voice of Katie Viqueira. He has performed at such renowned venues as the Wang Center, the Kimmel Center for the Arts, and the Smithsonian. As a sideman, he has played with such artists as John Pattitucci, Eddie Gomez, Jerry Bergonzi, Randy Brecker, and bossa nova great Maucha Adnet, among others.

After some time studying flamenco styles, Michelin took on the task of writing a musical connection between Arabian, flamenco, and South American cultures. Using this concept, the Nando Michelin Group will perform music featuring the following players: Layth Sidiq on violin, Naseem Alatrash on cello, Rob Taylor on bass, Tiago Michelin on drums, and Nando on piano. With a huge variety of flamenco styles to draw on, every song is a trip that unifies all the different sounds.

John Cooper Clarke's career spans over five decades and makes its mark across poetry, music, TV, film, radio, literature, and fashion. Clarke shot to prominence in the 1970s as the original punk poet, and he emerged as one of the leading voices of youth culture. Thanks to his biting, satirical, political, and very funny verse delivered in a unique, rapid-fire performance style, he became a seminal influence on the punk movement.

In May 2015, Clarke is embarking on a coast-to-coast tour that includes New York, San Francisco, Boston, and LA. A retrospective Sony box set will be released to coincide with the tour, marking the first time his career has been anthologized on this level. The box set will feature previously unheard versions of his best-known material, recorded with Martin Hannet’s The Invisible Girls; rarities; and incredible archival footage from the classic to the obscure. Back in the United Kingdom, 2015 sees John headlining some of the country’s biggest venues, collaborating on a string of exciting recording projects, starring on national network TV and radio on a regular basis, and headlining major festivals, including Glastonbury and Latitude.
