Gospel Music’s Finest Perform in NYC to Celebrate A Thriving Harlem Based Church!

Monday, October 17th, 2011

Last night in the heart of Harlem(NYC) JJ Hairston, Damien Sneed, and Kim Burrell graced the stage at First Corinthian Baptist Church for the culmination of its Visionary & Dreamers Weekend.  Special guest Ayana George, also offered musical selections contributing to a beautiful array of sounds during the concert.

JJ Hairston served as Master of Ceremony and worship leader for the night’s event. He set the tone for a night of worship and honour to God and the Pastors (Michael& LaKeisha Walrond) that have worked tirelessly to create a thriving church. Ayana George was up first with a wonderful medley of the Forever Jones hit “He Wants It All“, and William Mcdowell’s chart topping single “I Give Myself Away“. Damien Sneed followed with his group of singers “The Levites“. They sang some well known hymns and an original piece. The musicality and vocal blend was nothing shy of amazing! Their performance was a definite highlight of the night. Last but certainly not least, Kim Burrell stepped onto the stage and inspired, encouraged, and pushed all in attendance to worship God. Her vocals are simply amazing and equally amazing is her ability to usher people into God’s presence. JJ Hairston wrapped up the event with the classic church “war cry”. It was a beautiful night and we’re looking forward to more appearances by these great artists!
