Building bridges: Gospel-jazz concert grows out of Fountain of Life ministry

Like many students, composer and pianist Becca May Grant was clueless about life beyond the UW-Madison campus when she arrived in Madison in 1994. After all, why should a young white girl from Lakeville, Minnesota, know anything about the city’s diverse south side neighborhoods and the people who live there?

And she forged a connection with that new world through the power of gospel music.
