    On their web page, they refer to themselves using singular pronouns, i.e. 'Sweet Honey invites her audiences....' (If there's six of you, you're a 'they,' not a 'she.')
    They have had twenty members over the years.
    Their songs about political and social issues can get preachy.
    They have incredibly complex harmonies and intricate rhythms.
    Reagon said, 'So many people in our audiences ask, 'Why don't you use instruments?' And I respond, 'We do use instruments -- our voices.''
    Their sixth member is a sign language interpreter and they have performed benefits for Deaf Pride.
    Michelle Obama described them as 'a national treasure' and they were invited to perform at the White House for students during Black History Month (February, 2009).
