Mighty Medicine--Musical Medicine for the Soul.

 “More than anything, Mighty Medicine epitomizes
 gospel-charged soul,” -Anne Erikson Entertainment Editor for
 The Lansing State Journal.

“There is an external invisible force that carries them and their music, making it so much stronger and louder and powerful that one can hardly believe such strength can come from just two people.”
-Mid-Michigan’s Entertainment Guide, The Revue Magazine about Mighty Medicine
