Gospel music’s nationally recognized and successful artists will converge Saturday June 9th, 2012 for worship through song at the first Gospel in the SON Outreach (GITSO) Music Fest and Family Fun day.
The nondenominational event brings together the top, soulful artists today in gospel music to perform at Central Broward Regional Park & Stadium, 3700 NW 11th Pl., Lauderhill FL 33311. Gates open at 10 a.m. with a “Walk a mile for Jesus” walk-a-thon.
“Gospel in the SON Outreach is a family organization that is about families, and staging this event one week before Father’s Day underscores our commitment to communities and families,” said Brother Colin Forbes, Director of Ministry and Productions for Gospel in the SON Outreach and founder of Class Act Management Group Inc., the organizers. “GITSO is the forum we use for praise and worship.”
The Concert opens at 3 p.m. to acts such as eight-time Grammy Award-nominated Pastor Marvin Sapp, whose radio hit Never would have made it stayed at No. 1 on the radio charts for 43 weeks, and Double Platinum achiever Fred Hammond, who has a new hit single Dwelling Place. Others to bless the stage of grace include, JARS of Clay; Tye Tribbett; Christian hip-hop artist KJ52; Caribbean Hall of Famer Carlene Davis; and UnmasKd, a local five-piece Christian Contemporary Rock Band.
A limited amount of tickets are on sale now for $35 at www.itickets.com, www.Ticketweb.com, and select faith-based organizations in the Tri-County area. Ticket prices will increase and start at $45 on Tuesday, May 15, 2012.
The ticket price includes access to a refreshing Aquatic Park and a chance to hear up-and-coming artists on the Unsigned Artist Stage. Community organizations such as Father Focus will present workshops, Voter Registration, and a Health Fair.
“The workshop by Father Focus is not to be missed because it prepares young men to be responsible fathers, whether or not they are still in the relationship with their children’s mothers,” Forbes said. “Bring your blankets and prepare to be moved spiritually by what you hear and see.”
