Gospel singers, songwriters and musicians from all across the country will gather in Los Angeles for the Heritage Music Foundation’s Annual Gospel Music Conference to be held October 20th through the 23rd. This is the 25th anniversary of the HMF Conference founded by award winning songwriter Dr. Margaret Pleasant Douroux (Give Me a Clean Heart, He Decided to Die, If it Had Not Been for the Lord on My Side). The theme of this year’s conference is Gospel Music: A National Treasure for Hard Times.
“We recognize that Gospel music had its beginnings as a source of encouragement for the down-and-out and is needed now more than ever,” says Dr. Douroux. “We will be rejoicing in the midst of hard times.”
Amongst the outstanding guests joining Dr. Douroux at this year’s conference will be Dr. Bettye Ransom Nelson and V. Michael McKay from Houston Texas, Dr. Rodena Preston and the Los Angeles Chapter of the Gospel Music Workshop of America (GMWA), Dr. Calvin Bernard Rhone, Edna Tatum and the Heritage Mass Choir.
