Gospel music is sung both the old way and the new way.

“No matter how you like to hear gospel music sung or like to sing it, we will sing it your way at the Gospel Extravaganza on Saturday,” said Brandon McClure, organizer of the event.

The Gospel Extravaganza, featuring singing the old way and the new way, will be held at County Line Missionary Baptist Church in Brundidge beginning at 6 p.m. Saturday. The doors will open at 5 p.m.

“Everyone is invited to come early and enjoy the fellowship of friends and neighbors before the Gospel Extravaganza begins,” McClure said.

“This is going to be a really great gospel singing event and one that will benefit the residents of Troy Health and Rehab Center in Troy.”

There is no admission charge to the concert but McClure said everyone is encouraged to bring items to be donated to Troy Health and Rehab.

“There’s always a need for personal items such as lotion, deodorant, powder, toothpaste, those kind of items,” McClure said.

“The items that are donated will be delivered to the nursing home to be used as needed. We wanted to present a concert of music that will be uplifting and also to do something for our community and what better place to look than to those who have given so love and caring to their families and communities over the years.”

The concert will feature a mass choir comprised of members from different churches.

“We will also have special music by small gospel groups and maybe even some solo vocalists,” McClure said. “This is a great opportunity to bring our community together for a time of worship in songs. We’ll sing songs like ‘Precious Lord’ and ‘God Made Me.’ This is a non-denominational event and, the best way I know to describe it, is that it will be a spiritual experience in songs and what a wonderful experience it will be.

Everyone is invited to attend the Gospel Extravaganza at County Line Missionary Baptist Church on Saturday.

The concert is free.
