Popular area gospel singer and personality Brenda Ivey Robertson has organized one of the year's most impressive and comprehensive events designed to both give exposure to gifted local performers and choirs and help victims of the recent flooding. Saturday night's "Salute For Flood Relief and Benefit Gospel Concert" at the Watson Grove Baptist Church, 1415 Horton Ave, will feature top soloists, groups, duos and choirs doing classic, traditional and original gospel numbers.
The night's many events will also include appearances from city officials and dignitaries, and offer fans a chance to hear great music and also bring donations and funds to assist area charities and philanthropic organizations. Also a special recording entitled "You're My Neighbor" will be sold for $6. The event gets underway at 7 p.m.
