THE GREAT DIVAS OF GOSPEL
April 20 @ 3:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)
Every week on Saturday until April 27, 2019
THE GREAT DIVAS OF GOSPEL” pays a superb tribute to the female pioneers of Gospel music like The Clara Ward Singers, The Sallie Martin Singers, The Famous Davis Sisters, The Roberta Martin Singers, Marion Williams & The Stars of Faith, Dorothy Love Coates & The Gospel Harmonettes, Albertina Walker & The Famous Caravans, and Gospel’s Queen, Miss Mahalia Jackson. This riveting show takes you nostalgically down Memory Lane back 60-70 years ago to the Golden Era of Gospel music (1945-60) when these legendary divas took Gospel music all across the USA, in spite of discrimination, racism, and the tough Jim Crow laws of the 1940s & 50s. You’ll find yourself clapping along and singing as you hear these beautiful songs of Zion. This is a wholesome show that you can bring the whole family to see and enjoy a tasty soul food dinner at the same time.
