"A Beloved Institution"
– Insight News

Once again, “The Pavarotti of Gospel” (Star Tribune), raises his voice to perform music that exemplifies the spirit of Martin Luther King Jr. and Black History Month. From the gospel sounds of Rev. James Cleveland and Mahalia Jackson to the more subtle messages of freedom and hope by artists like John Lennon, Sam Cooke, Pop “Roebuck” Staples, Mavis Staples and Bob Dylan, Robinson’s concert is sure to inspire and uplift every listener. “In spite of the difficulties we are facing in this world, we must all believe and never give up hope for a better tomorrow.” – Robert Robinson (Insight News)
