Today, GRAMMY-winning group Maverick City Music joins NPR Tiny Desk for a soul-stirring, hand-clapping concert, backed by 10 choir members, 2 sets of keys, drums, guitar, and bass –– all squeezed in for one of the first Tiny Desk concerts to return to the office. “The NPR production staff was buzzing because we had not recorded such a large ensemble in our office in more than two years” says NPR. For the finale, the genre-blending music collective is joined by 16-time Grammy winner Kirk Franklin, who Maverick City Music released collab album Kingdom Book One with last week.
