If you follow our Classic Urban Harmony activities, you know we always try to attend Rev. Dr. Brenda Boone-Smith’s annual gospel programs in Portsmouth Virginia.  For those of us that love gospel music, particularly quartet harmony, this is always one of the highlights of our year.  This year is no exception.  On Sunday February 23, 2020, beginning at 4 PM (doors open at 3), the program will include Paul Prembly and Frankie Davis of the Golden Gate Quartet (performing with the local band, the Mighty Stars); Rev. Thomas Spann and the Brooklyn Allstars; Pastor Luther Barnes & the Sunset Jubilaires; Elder Ronald Harper & the Harmonizing Echoes; God’s Boys; the Word singers; Danny Hill & Group Determination; the Gospel Travelers of Garysburg NC; and gospel vocalists Amelia Sears Goodman and Willie O.  Plus Rev. Dr. Brenda Boone-Smith & the Higher Praise Community Singers.  MC’s include Donald L. Eason (WGPL & WPCE) and Steven Alexander.  Sponsors of the National Gold Albums award of Santa Monica CA will present two gold albums.  It all takes place at The Mount on Portsmouth Blvd, 900 Portsmouth Blvd, Portsmouth VA.  Donation is $25.  Contact 757-477-3828 or 757-227-2200.
