Moving Star Hall Singers

The Moving Star Hall Singers of Johns Island, Charleston County, are nationally recognized for their important contributions to African-American musical heritage. They are a multi-generational family group who belong to Moving Star Hall, one of the last remaining praise houses of the South Carolina Sea Islands. Here a powerful and distinctive form of worship developed during the mid 1800s. The Moving Star Hall Singers’ shouting style of praise-house religious song moves the heart and lifts the spirit.
