Robert Sims' interpretations of African American folk songs have won him praise throughout the Unites States, Europe and Asia. Following the tradition of Paul Robeson, Roland Hayes, and William Warfield, Sims has emerged as one of this generation's spiritual specialist. Upholding this proud heritage for today's audience, Sims is equally effective at bringing deep intimacy to African American folk songs as well as to the traditional classical repertoire.
A leading interpreter of African American spirituals, Robert Sims recently made his recital debut at Carnegie Hall. He has been featured in concerts at Lincoln Center, the Smithsonian, the African American Museum in Los Angeles, Grace Cathedral, the Latour de France International Music Festival, and the American Church in Paris.
