Imago Dei (Image of God)

We encourage you to listen to music that speaks to the vast experiences of different ethnic cultures. The countless genres represented in this music echo the majesty of our God. The Office of Intercultural Engagement has curated a playlist on Spotify,"Imago Dei (Image of God)", to celebrate the creativity, strength, and beauty of various people groups.

 Faculty, Staff, and Alumni music album covers and photos

We are grateful for Dr. Jennie Oh BrownMr. Stevener GaskinDr. Carolyn HartMr. Maurice Henderson '12 (Bartholomew Jones), Dr. Shawn Okpebholo, and Mr. Will Liverman. These gifted scholars and artists from Wheaton College honor the Lord and share their expertise and experiences both nationally and internationally. Listen to their music featured in our "Imago Dei" Spotify playlist

The music in this playlist represents many nations and cultures. Still, there is more to hear and learn from these voices than the sixty songs in this playlist can convey. The experiences of each represented community reach far beyond this music. We invite you to read, listen, genuinely connect, and engage with God's precious people. 

We do not own the rights to any of the music curated in this playlist.
