    Abstract:
    To further promote the performance of African American spirituals and art songs, this article offers a different perspective - direct response from collegiate voice students, voice teachers, vocal coaches, and professional singers. In the spring of 2005, "The African American Art Song Survey" was developed and disseminated through the Internet to collect data from over 200 voice teachers, coaches, and singers regarding their attitudes on performing African American classical vocal repertoire across ethnicities, receiving a response rate of approximately 44% from 500 distributed surveys.
