*(Los Angeles) – American Idol Winner Ruben Studdard seeks to preserve the music of historical spirituals through “The Normal Hill Jubilee Documentary” Kickstarter Fundraising Campaign which runs throughout the month of September.
“Please join me, in doing something special, preserving a piece of American history,” said Studdard who has found success in both the R & B and Gospel music genres.
The Normal Hill Jubilee Documentary will examine the evolution of an art form and the deep- seated need to express faith in song. This film will capture the untold stories from historians, Freedom Riders and include interviews with celebrities, civil rights activists and everyday people. This inspiring documentary is being constructed to understand spirituals, which are so prominent during times of strife.
