The Fisk Jubilee Singers are students at Fisk University and have sung for audiences worldwide since the original group was formed in 1871 to help raise money for the university. At that time, Fisk was the only university that offered a liberal arts education to young men and women irrespective of their race, and it was struggling to stay open.

The original Fisk Jubilee Singers introduced "slave songs" to the world and were instrumental in preserving this unique American musical tradition known today as spirituals.
