Sunday evening gospel groups from as far away as Tupelo, Mississippi appeared at Pensacola High School and played to a full house of gospel loving enthusiasts.
Groups such as the Gospel Singingaires of Pensacola, Gospel Imperials of Huntsville Alabama, Michael Thompson and Chosen Vessel of Selma, Alabama and Lee Williams and the Spiritual QC’s of Tupelo Mississippi gave God the glory and revised the Quartet harmony to cause everyone in the building to shout and give praise.
Sponsored by Pastor Michael Thompson of Greater Union Baptist Church, the intention was to begin an introduction of other singing groups in the Southeast area.
“I plan to reach up and down; to expose them to Pensacola and Pensacola to them, said Pastor Thompson. “I’ve told my people that listen to my radio show on WRNE that I plan to bring a number of groups including the Canton Spirituals, Blessed by Four, Helen Miller and Rev. Andrew Cheairs and The Song Birds and Pastor Shaun Jones as well as local groups . I just want people to enjoy themselves as we minister to them through the Word of song.” He said.
