Rev. Krista Alston and Pleasant Gift M.B. Church, 4526 S. Greenwood in Chicago, invites all to a special Mother’s Day service featuring the Texas Southern University Choir and Orchestra. The choir will perform beautiful arrangements and share various instrumental and piano soloists, operatic arias and art song repertoire during the 11am service.
The church is home to Chicago’s iconic Jennifer Hudson who was a member of the choir directed by her cousin and DuSable High School music teacher, Shari Nichols Sweat. The choir’s itinerary will take them around the city to Kenwood High School on Monday morning and later an afternoon performance at King College Prep High School. The day’s performance will conclude downtown at Columbia College, 6:30 pm hosted by Fernando Jones, blues educator.
The Mother’s Day concert is open to the public.
Also, happy birthday to promoter Edward Floyd who is experiencing health challenges and in need of your prayers for healing.
