The 32nd Annual Black Music & The Civil Rights Movement concert was one of the most powerful concerts I've ever attended in my life
Perry brought the crowd to a standing ovation when he performed"Everything Must Change.I really appreciated the wonderful music, sung by several lead singers and supported by a wonderful choir.
This moving tribute reflects on Dr. King's life and celebrates the struggles and triumphs of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. It’s a compelling evening of film footage, narration, music, spoken word and dance. The concert features multi-Grammy award winner Chantè Moore and Grammy nominee vocal great Phil Perry.
Chante Moore was stunning in her long dress and was as beautiful, as she was talented.
I really enjoyed the fact that I felt like I went to church, in there! Especially when Drea Randle, sang "God on your Side" just one of many soloist singing amazing gospel spirituals.
Many city leaders, socialites, and community activist attended the event, filling the entire Morton H. Meyer Symphony Center in Downtown Dallas.
CBS Sports anchor and friend Guy Rawlings got a chance to meet the beautiful Chante Moore and hosted the show from the lobby. CBS will air a special edited version February 21, 2015 at 7pm.
The program began more than 30 years ago under the creation of The Black Academy of Arts and Letters founder Curtis King.
Students from Texas College & Michelle Magee, Choral Director & Professor of Music participated in the great show.
This will be a must see event for next year, previous acts include Erykah Badu, Jennifer Holiday and many others.
SPECIAL THANKS CHERYL SMITH & GUY RAWLINGS FOR THE INVITE!
