Must-See Music Pick! From the Music Editors: View Music Picks 
Conceived back in the late 1930s at the Alabama Institute for the Negro Blind, this legendary group has seen half its original members pass on, but the spirit of its gospel roots breathes strong. Most recently, the Boys collaborated with everyone from Ben Harper to Bonnie Raitt for its 2009 album, Duets. Expect several seasonal selections for this Christmas show. (Gavin Paul)
