Free Gospel Sundays at the Arsht Center for the Performing Arts

Feb 21st, 2010. 4:00 p.m.

The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County, in partnership with Miami gospel radio station WMBM 1490 AM and Jubilate, Inc., announces its next Free Gospel Sundays concert featuring Grammy-nominated gospel quartet, The Canton Spirituals. Special guests include the Mount Tabor Full Gospel Baptist Church Choir and The Free Gospel Sundays Choir.  This concert is the latest installment in the Adrienne Arsht Center’s extraordinarily popular Free Gospel Sundays series, which has been supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation since the 2008/09 season, and just received a two-year, $200,000 Knight Arts Challenge Grant to continue the series into the Center’s 2010/11 season.

Founded in 1943, The Canton Spirituals are the pioneers of traditional gospel music.  Considered by many as gospel music’s number one quartet, The Canton Spirituals has released many hit albums including Live in Memphis and Living the Dream: Live in Washington, D.C.  The group has performed with notable artists such as Take 6, The Sounds of Blackness, Mom and Pop Winans, Shirley Caesar, and The Williams Brothers. They will be joined by the Miami-based Mount Tabor Missionary Baptist Church Choir and the Free Gospel Sundays Mass Choir.
