Manager Cory explains the camaraderie this way, “We both grew up in church but in the show we say things other Christians may be thinking but are afraid to say.”  Rejoice Musical Soulfood CEO Mike Chandler agrees. “The response has been incredible.  The audience is really loving the dynamic of Coko and Cory.  So, I’m excited to see where the show is going from here.”
