In observance of the 9th Anniversary of the Glen, The African American Achievers Youth Corps, Inc. will host its 10th Annual “Kings of Gospel” Concert on Saturday, October 14 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, Damien Johnson, David Gullett, Michael Curtis, Rev. John Talley, Pastor Gregg T. Frazier, Booker T. Buckingham, Dwight Edwards, Bruce A. Pearson, Jonathan Portis, Jarritt Hayden, Rev. Marquise Washington, Nate Simms, Andre’ Adams, Sylvester Mabone, Charles Johnson, and Jason Anderson.
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 887-2046.
