If you live in Nashville and are reading this, I want to tell you about something kind of cool. Gladys Knight is coming to Nashville with an Grammy-award winning gospel choir she conducts. The program they do is mostly choral, but she does some singing and talking, too. I've seen video clips and it looks pretty darned cool.
Gladys Knight joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (aka Mormons) several years ago. Coming from her gospel background, she found our worship services, especially the music, to be a little....bland. So, she took it up with the President of the Church and he said, "Well, Gladys, why don't you do something about it?"
So, she put together what is apparently a high-octane performance of gospel music. The choir sings, she sings, and tells her story about how she joined the Church.
It sounds kind of cool, and I'm excited to go. Tickets are free, but they are going fast. If you are interested in going, send me an email and I can get you some tickets. The dates are Saturday, October 16th at 7:00 (bad time if you are in Fiddler on the Roof) and Sunday, October 17th at 4:30 and 7:30 pm. My email is: braden at bradenbell.com or just click here.
