The History of Praise

April 2 / 8pm
General Admission: $15 / Students: $5

Gospel music of 19th – 21st century America

From the labor fields to campgrounds, church, and on Broadway; gospel music and its barrier breaking genres is a catalyst to the souls’ expression of faith through praise and worship to God.  The hymns of Thomas Dorsey, Isaac Watts, Elvis Presley, Albertina Walker, the Oak Ridge Boys, the contemporary spirituals of choirs, and the southern gospel of quartets are among the many who set the tone for the next millennium’ praise.  Life’s joys and hardships, laments and confessions of faith become a demonstration on Praise
