Duke University Junior Tom Shelbourn got his own version of culture shock when he took the Sounds of the South English class last semester.
He is from England, and when he attended a performance of the Fisk Jubilee Singers and listened to them sing "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot," he knew he'd heard the song before. But not like that.
"It's actually a chant that you will hear at every international rugby game," he said. "You will hear that song often louder than the national anthem at times."
