In observance of the 8th anniversary of the Glen, The African American Achievers Youth Corps, Inc. will host its 9th Annual “Kings of Gospel” Concert on Saturday, October 8 at 7 p.m. in the Glen, 20 West Ridge Road in Gary.
Dr. Vernon G. Smith, Board Chairman, said the event will feature some of the best male gospel singers in Gary. Among those scheduled are Bishop Norman Hairston, Charles Johnson, Dwight Edwards, Jason Anderson, Bruce Pearson, Rev. John Talley, Damien Johnson, David Gullett, Rev. Roosevelt Dixon, Booker Buckingham, Rev. Gregg Frazier, Sylvester Mabone, and Michael Curtis.
Smith said the funds raised from this event are urgently needed to help pay for repairs for the theatre and to begin to accumulate monies in preparation for winter utility bills which for the theatre are quite expensive. He noted the Achievers are quite grateful to singers who are a part of this event.
Tickets for the event are $15 and may be purchased at Beautiful Things, 3570 Village Court or from any of the participants. The cost at the door will be $20. For additional information contact Smith at (219) 887-2046.
