Godfrey, Ill. – As part of the college’s Black History Month events calendar, the annual “Celebration in Song” concert will feature a variety of talented singers on Sunday, Feb. 26 at 4 p.m. in the Trimpe Advanced Technology Center.
This year will feature the sounds of the Riverbend Gospel Community Choir under the direction of Brenda Lancaster.
Featured performers include Henry ‘Mickey’ Miles, Sheila Goins, Kevin Ward, Howard Neal, Brenda Lancaster, Skipper Mack, Brian Harrison and Marcus Harrison.
A choir consisting of singers from community churches including Deliverance Temple, Monroe Memorial, St. James Baptist and Morning Star will perform.
“This year’s event will be unique because it represents a chronology of gospel music from the slavery days to present,” said Jared Henning, event coordinator.
“The choir members represent a variety of local churches and we hope that the community comes out to support the event.”
